ONE FC’s legions of fans have five new fights to look forward to at War of Dragons:
Sung Ming Yen versus Muhamad Haidar
Rayner Kinsiong versus Zhang Zheng Jie
Jeff Huang versus Bala Shetty
Florian Garel versus Nathan Ng
Eric Kelly versus Robert Lisita
Three of these new fights will showcase homegrown talent. The first fight will feature Jeff Huang, the grappling sensation from Taiwan BJJ who quit his job in finance to pursue a career in mixed martial arts. All three of his wins have come via stoppage.
Huang will be facing Indian newcomer, Bala Shetty, who will either snag his first win or suffer his first defeat in front of the hostile, Taiwanese audience.
Taiwanese welterweight, Zhang Zheng Jie, will also be on the card. Known as “Frogman” because of his position in Taiwan’s elite marine corps, Zhang is one of two fighters at War of Dragons coming from TOUGH MMA. He has two fights under his belt, and both were won by first-round submission.
Frogman will be taking on Malaysian, karateka, Raynar “King Karabaw” Kansiong. A third-degree black belt from Borneo, Raynar shares Frogman’s decisionless 2-0 win streak. Both he and Frogman will be making their ONE FC debuts at War of Dragons.
“Sam” Ming Yen Sung, will be the other fighter on the card representing TOUGH MMA. A former Legend FC fighter, Ming has a 2-1 record consisting of a submission win and a decision win. He is a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Like his teammate, Ming will be facing a Malaysian. In Ming’s case, this will be the former F3 fighter, Muhamed Haidar.
Florian Garel could very well be considered another Taiwanese fighter on the card. Though he’s French, he speaks fluent Mandarin and has made Taichung, Taiwan his second home. He is a fourth-degree black belt in karate and serves as both a teacher and branch chief at Karate Zendokai Taiwan. Garel holds a 2-3 record and will no doubt be looking to make up for his recent, triangle armbar loss at PRO FC 9.
Garel’s opponent will be Hong Kong newcomer and model, Nathan Ng. Nathan holds a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Rounding out the field of recently-added fights will be the main event: Rob Lisita versus Eric Kelly. Lisita holds a 14-5 record and has neither lost a fight nor let a fight go to the judges in two years. His opponent, Eric Kelly, holds a 10-1 record. Only one of his wins had to be determined by the judges.
War of Dragons will be kicking off live from Taipei, Taiwan in only two weeks. Fight of the Night will be there at the National Taiwan University Sports Center covering all the action before, during, and after the fights.
