Full fight card of MIMMA Season 2 Grand Finals includes 4 pro bouts

Program goes fully digital for viewers to stream episodes online


Happening this coming October 25th at Stadium Negara KL (a week after ONE FC: Roar of Tigers), the ultimate Grand Finals of Tune Talk's Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts (MIMMA) Fighting Championship Season 2 will hold its championship bouts where the contenders from MIMMA2 will challenge the reigning champions from season 1 for the local amateur titles. State pride will definitely be on the line as none of the bouts are with both fighters from the same state. On top of the championship bouts, there will be professional bouts featuring fighters from different promotions and countries.

It'll be an open weight bout (not catchweight!) and apparently, according to Sherdog.com, this will be Pellino's pro debut. From what I read on social media, these two don't seem to like each other very much so expect to see these two trying to hurt each other. If you're curious if experience could win a fighter with significant weight advantage, you wouldn't want to miss this one.

In the co-main event, another pro bout, PXC and URCC fighter Mark "Mugen" Striegl (12-1) will face Kaiwhare "Kai" Kara-France (7-4) from New Zealand. Both fighters have suffered a loss in their previous fight so they should be eager to beat each other up to hopefully kick off a new winning streak.

Malaysia's very own female fighter Foo "Iron Rose" Zhen Wei will finally make her return into the cage after a disappointing debut in MFC 6 last year. She will be attempting to get her first career win against MMA debutant Rachel "The Revolution" Short from England. Foo will have the whole home crowd cheering in support at the stadium.

Not all the champions from Season 1 will be returning to defend their amateur title. Lightweight champ Allen Chong had to vacate his belt due to his pro status from participating in UFC's The Ultimate Fighter China, and heavyweight champ Adrian Tham, too, has vacated his as well for unknown reason. Here's the full fight card;
