ONE Championship announced its return to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for ONE: Visions of Victory. The event is set to take palce at the Axiata Stadium on Friday, March 9.
Though a main event has yet to be announced, Asia’s largest sports property unveiled the undercard that will feature two Filipino fighters.
In a battle between two contenders, Team Lakay’s Danny Kingad takes on Malaysian Gianni Subba in a three-round flyweight bout.
Danny “The King” Kingad is a regional wushu champion with a wushu record of 29-1, and martial artist with a professional record of 8-1.
A true warrior from the mountains of the Philippines and one of the top prospects to come out of the country, Kingad is a tremendous striker who possesses well-rounded grappling skills. In his most recent bout, Kingad suffered the first defeat of his career after submitting to reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes in the first round.
Kingad will now return to action against Subba.
Gianni Subba is a 25-year old flyweight talent from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur.
He spends time carefully honing his craft with talented teammates, including brother Keanu, at Bali MMA in Indonesia. A winner of six of his last seven bouts, Subba is a seasoned athlete with a stellar 9-2 clip in his young career. Five of his nine wins have come either by submission or by crowd-pleasing knockout.
Joining Kingad is Ilocano Burn Soriano.
The Filipino featherweight has an aggressive style, with solid power and seasoned grappling technique leading to all of his wins to date coming by way of stoppage. His 15-second spinning back fist knockout of Indonesia’s Mario Sitya Wirawan in 2016 is one of the fastest finishes in ONE history.
A national kickboxing champion with a kickboxing record of 14-3, Soriano has shown steady improvement over his last few contests and now looks for victory next against Muhammad Aiman.
Former amateur standout Muhammad Aiman of Malaysia is one of the country’s fastest rising young martial arts talents. Featuring a well-rounded skill set, Aiman has impressed in his time inside the ONE Championship cage thus far, defeating Hisyam Samsudin by unanimous decision in his first match in the promotion before stopping Brazilian grappler Eduardo Novaes in his second outing.
In his most recent contest, Aiman thoroughly dominated Chinese prospect Yang Fei to win a unanimous decision.
