ONE Fighting Championship announced on Monday the launch of its Malaysian National Featherweight Championship Tournament.
Four of the top MMA prospects in Malaysia will battle it out in the first round of the tournament at ONE FC: Return of the Warriors, which takes place live on Feb. 2 from the state-of-the-art Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The two fights signed for the tournament are Raymond “The Rocket” Tiew taking on Melvin “Overkill” Yeoh and AJ “Pyro” Lias Mansor squaring off against Jian Kai “The Headhunter” Chee. By the end of the evening, Malaysians will know who the top two contenders for the National Featherweight Championship title will be.
CEO of ONE Fighting Championship Victor Cui stated, “ONE FC is stacked with the largest roster of Asian champions and the featherweight division is probably the most exciting division. It is time for us to crown national champions in Asia and Tiew, Yeoh, Mansor and Chee have proven that they are the most exciting prospects in Malaysia. We are giving these home-grown champions the chance to earn themselves the right to be called the Malaysian National Champion and rise to the top of the division as the number one contender.”
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
