Around the Pro Circuit: One FC, Australian Fighting Championship 2, and Proud Warrior Productions 3 Results

It's been a big, amazing weekend in the Pacific. Australia hosted two notable mixed martial arts events, while the highly anticipated "Pride of Asia", One FC, got underway.

Of course, the highlight of the weekend is One FC. The event streamed live and free on Sherdog for western viewers, so despite a slight hangover, I was up with the chickens to catch the world's next MMA powerhouse promotion make it's world debut.

There were a few one-sided match-ups in the middle of the nine fight card, but overall the production met standard. I still had to deal with the Sherdog's hypnotic buffering wheel, but I won't let that stop me from believing that One FC is the next major producer in international MMA. I'm sure Dana White will crap in his pants when the official numbers return -- over 500 million potential viewers -- whoah!

Meanwhile, Australia hosted two events, one of which saw Hector Lombard take home the inaugural Middleweight Title from the Australian Fighting Championship, earning a submission victory over TUF alum Jesse Taylor.
