ONE Championship makes a comeback in TIGERS OF ASIA

The largest sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), in partnership with TuneTalk Malaysia, is set to deliver fans in Kuala Lumpur another exhilarating night of world-class mixed martial arts action on 9 October, featuring the absolute best in local and international talent. ONE Middleweight World Champion Igor “Lionheart” Svirid will now headline the spectacular fight card in Kuala Lumpur as he defends his title against Vitaly Bigdash.

There are also gonna be three Malaysia Super Fights as Ann Osman takes on Irina Mazepa, Ev Ting battles Honorio Banario and Peter Davis duels Adrian Pang.

ONE Championship is finally back in Malaysia after making its way all across the world, and I am very stoked! The best part is, there are so many Malaysia fights!!!! There are so many international fighters as well, and I am not gonna miss this this time around.

In the Malaysia Super Fights, Malaysia’s fighting belle, Ann “Athena” Osman, is back and ready to rock Kuala Lumpur once again in her highly-anticipated return to the ONE Cage. Working to constantly improve her overall MMA game, Osman has been deep in training on the coastal locale of Kota Kinabalu. She will get the chance to show off her new moves against Russian kickboxer, Irina Mazepa.

Irina Mazepa is making her debut inside the ONE Cage a memorable one by taking on one of the female flyweight division’s best fighters. A six-time Wushu world champion and a K1 world champion kickboxer, Mazepa’s devastating striking skills will be put to the test against Ann “Athena” Osman.

Ev “E.T.” Ting’s most recent fight was against tough Russian foe Marat Gafurov, in one of the most valuable learning experiences for the 26-year old Auckland MMA product. Ting is currently 3-1 inside the ONE Cage and will now look to get back in the winner’s circle in front of his hometown crowd with a victory over Filipino stalwart, Honorio Banario.

Honorio Banario of the famed Team Lakay in Baguio City, Philippines, is back and ready to show fans exactly what he’s been working on in the past few months since his last fight. An expert in Wushu, Banario will showcase his lightning quick strikes against Malaysia’s own, Ev Ting, in a featherweight showdown that promises to electrify the arena.

Always a mainstay in Kuala Lumpur fight cards, lightweight standout Peter Davis is unbeaten in ONE Championship when fighting in Malaysia’s capital city. Davis is currently on an incredible four-fight win streak which includes one submission and three straight TKO wins. His next test is certainly one that will push him to the limit as he takes on the veteran from Queensland, Australia, Adrian “The Hunter” Pang.

Lightweight veteran Adrian Pang was impressive in his ONE Championship debut last December against Vincent Latoel. His submission via Guillotine Choke showcased his ability to grind against a tough opponent and come through with a technical victory. Pang continues his stellar career against one of Malaysia’s most popular stars in and out of the cage, Peter Davis.

Other fights of the night include:
  • Eric “The Natural” Kelly vs Hiroshige Tanaka
  • Riku Shibuya vs Eugene Toquero
  • Dae Hwan Kim vs Teng Li Ge
  • Gianni Subba vs Marcos Ratinho
  • Saiful “The Vampire” Merican vs Melvin Yeoh
  • Ruel Catalan vs Almiro Barros
  • Agilan “Alligator” Thani vs Hisham Hiba
  • Keanu Subba vs Florian Garel

Are you excited??? I know I am!

Til the next time, stay beautiful!
