REBEL FC 2: BATTLE ROYALE is a knockout tournament that will test the skill and will of eight of the world’s toughest, exciting and decorated Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters. The tournament structure for BATTLE ROYALE will begin with the 8 men competing in 4 quarter-final fights. The winners of the fights will go on to compete in two semi-final fights and subsequently, the grand final. The winner of BATTLE ROYALE will be crowned the first ever REBEL FC featherweight champion.

Among the elite eight are whom many consider the best all-time bantamweight MMA athlete, Miguel Torres from USA and his equally formidable countryman Will Chope, former UFC fighter and former URCC champion. Completing the line-up are former ZST featherweight champion Yojiro Uchimura from Japan, current URCC champion Reydon Romero from the Philippines, Australian submission specialist Michael Tobin, hard brawling Australian Thai Pat Promrangka, Brazilian WOCS champion Mauricio Dos Santos Jr and DEEP Japanese champion Takahiro Ashida.

The quarter-final fights will be hosted on 1 August 2014 at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre while the semi-finals and grand final on another spectacular night at a later date.

Ever since his untimely release from the UFC, Will “The Kill”Chope has been one of the hottest talked about subjects in MMA. A self described “journeyman” who left America behind for Thailand, Chope made his name fighting frequently across Asia against whoever was put in front of him. Chope aims to silence the haters as he takes on one of his toughest tests, WOCS champion and brutal finisher Mauricio “Faccao” Dos Santos Jr.

A man who’s fighting style is just as wild as his personality, Mauricio “Faccao” is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt with a penchant for submitting his opponents before the final bell. While his record seems unimpressive at 10-8, Faccao has fought some of the best Brazilians in MMA, including current Bellator champion Eduardo Dantos. In his international debut, Faccao will certainly be aiming for Chope’s neck!

A heavy handed striker and wrestler, Pat Promrangka enjoys partying almost as much as he likes knocking people out. With all six of his wins coming by way of knockout or submission, Promrangka knows he is the underdog in a tournament full of MMA legends and surging prospects, but when you pack the power that Pat does, an upset is only one punch away.

A kickboxer and former K-1 veteran, Yojiro Uchimura seems like nothing more than a friendly jokester with a talent for cooking. Beneath his exterior however, lies one of the most dangerous strikers in Asia. Boasting a finish percentage of nearly 90%, Yojiro has been in several brutal wars, as well as a draw with former Sengoku champion Marlon Sandro. When these two meet, fireworks are guaranteed!

Miguel Torres was at one point one of the top bantamweight fighters of all time, holding an astounding record of 30 wins and only 1 defeat. Since his time in the WEC and UFC however, Torres has experienced setback after setback along the road to redemption. On August 1st, he faces Japanese fighter Takahiro Ashida in the first round of the REBEL FC: BATTLE ROYALE Tournament, and will be looking to revamp his career with a dominating performance.

With a record of 12 wins and only 2 defeats, the young Takahiro Ashida is one of the best kept secrets in Japan. An exciting finisher, Ashida respects Miguel Torres’ mastery of Jiu Jitsu and contribution to the sport, but recognizes just how much his own name would be elevated should he defeat a legend on one of the largest stages in Asia.
