The 33-year-old Kawajiri (30-7-2) has won his last three fights against Drew
Fickett, Joachim Hansen and Kazuyuki Miyata. He made the drop to featherweight
in September and is twice unbeaten in the division. Kawajiri appears on the ONE
FC card courtesy of a talent exchange program between ONE FC and DREAM.
The two confirmed matchups on the ONE FC 3 card so far are Masakazu Imanari vs. Kevin Belingon and Eduard Folayang vs. Ole Laursen. Confirmed participants on
the card include Ray Elbe, Eddie Ng, Zorobabel Moreira and Nicole Chua.
The previously slated main event with Renato "Babalu" Sobral vs. Melvin Manhoef is unlikely to happen. Sobral has since
signed to fight Steve Bosse for Canada's Instinct promotion in May.
