THIS Friday, Oct 18, ONE Fighting Championship once again returns to its home-based Singapore to hold ONE FC: Total Domination, the promotion’s 11th show, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Three home-grown fighters from Malaysia will be on the card facing off against three Singaporean fighters. Marc Marcellinus, a Kadazandusun from Tambunan, Sabah, will square off against British-Singaporean Stephen Langdown. Sanshou and kickboxing exponent Alex Lim, from Kuala Lumpur, will compete against Singapore Manhunt winner and runway model Juan Wen Jie. Meanwhile, in ONE FC’s second women’s match in its history, Sabahan Ann “Athena” Osman will be fighting Singaporean Sherylin Lim.
Singapore’s Juan will not be the only male model to enter the cage. Malaysia-based British model and actor Peter Davis, already a household name in his adopted country, will battle Eddie Ng, who will be fighting under the Hong Kong flag.
In the co-main event, ONE FC Lightweight World Champion and Japanese master grappler Shinya Aoki is taking a big risk dropping to featherweight to face American Cody Stevens, while in the main event, the Bantamweight Unification Bout will see Interim World Champion Brazilian Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes up against Bantamweight World Champion Soo Chul Kim of South Korea.
A Cambodian fighter will also be making his ONE FC debut. Kun Khmer exponent Khim Dima will meet Filipino Rene Catalan in the cage.
For Malaysian fans of Peter Davis, his match will be of interest since his winning streak was broken by his loss to Ariel “Tarzan” Sexton in the grand finals of the Malaysian Invasion MMA earlier this year. In that match, Davis was pummeled and left temporarily deaf in one ear by the merciless Sexton. Davis will be looking to throw all his unconventional wuji chuan moves at Eddie Ng to ensure a victory this time.
