Jake Butler looks to avenge his huge upset loss to Sylvain Potard at One FC: Warrior's Way at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Butler and Potard met last year at the Total Domination event in Singapore, where the Frenchman stunned the jampacked Singapore Indoor Stadium by knocking out the American in the second round.

After scoring a KO win against Mohamed Ali at War of Dragons in Taipei last July, Butler (4-1) now sets his sights at the fighter who tainted his then unbeaten record.

The former star wrestler at Princeton said, “[Potard]’s the only loss on my record. I would love to get in there and do it again. I’m pretty confident I can beat him. I think the last bout was not a reflection of the type of fighter that I am and what I can do.”
