Kirstie Gannaway signs with ONE FC, set to be next Singaporean MMA star
Kirstie Gannaway is set to become the third female Singaporean fighter to sign with ONE FC and there are such high hopes for the 23 year old, who has a background in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), boxing and Wushu, that she has also been offered a full time position on the Evolve MMA Fight Team.

Women's MMA has taken off in the last year as the UFC has finally allowed female fighters to compete, but ONE FC has been open to athletes of all genders for even longer, with Nicole Chua competing inside the cage at the Singapore Indoor Stadium as far back as March of 2012.

Developing a deep roster of female fighters has been a gradual process for ONE FC, but the popularity which Fil-Am former boxing world champion Ana Julaton has enjoyed since signing for the promotion earlier this year, is likely to have inspired Asia's biggest MMA promotion to find more women capable of competing inside its cage.
