ONE Championship returns to Malaysia on October 9th, MIMMA3 Grand Finals on the 10th


Hardcore mixed martial arts (MMA) fans in Malaysia are going to love this one. Tune Talk and ONE Championship have announced that they will be teaming up to organise a week-long MMA extravaganza in October right here in Kuala Lumpur. ONE: Tigers of Asia will be held on October 9th at Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil, followed by Tune Talk's MIMMA3 Grand Finals on the next day.

MIMMA, the Malaysian amateur MMA tournament, has just recently finished the semi-finals of the third season and the finalists will be facing the reigning champions in the Grand Finals. No fight card yet for ONE: Tigers of Asia but there's a hint on ONE's Facebook Page that the main event might just be the inevitable title rematch between welterweight champion Ben Askren and top contender Luis Santos. If it happens, it would be the most interesting ONE title bout in a long time as the first Askren-Santos fight back in April ended with a controversial eye-poke. I'll also be expecting to see the usual suspects -- Peter Davis, Ann Osman, Gianni Subba -- to feature on the card. It's convincing enough that they could take on tougher challenges to climb up the ranks. Malaysians need champions!

The weigh-ins, for the first time ever as well, will feature both professional and amateur fighters from ONE and MIMMA. There'll also be an MMA summit with seminars being held at local gyms as well. Stay tuned to the social media channels of these two promotions for further details on this.

Tickets for ONE: Tigers of Asia and the MIMMA3 Grand Finals are now available on redtix.airasia.com. For those who want to attend both events, there are special Multi-Pass discount packages for sale as well.
