ONE FC has announced the launch of a Malaysian National Featherweight Championship Tournament. The grand prix will be filled by the top 145 lb. prospects that Malaysia has to offer as Raymond Tiew, Melvin Yeoh, AJ Lias Mansor, and Jian Kai Chee have been pegged to compete for the right to be called the Malaysian National Champion.
The brackets will pit Raymond Tiew (4-2), a sanshou specialist, against Melvin Yeoh (6-1), who is often considered the number-one Malaysian prospect. The other side of the bracket will see a clash of striking styles as Silat stylist AJ Lias Mansor (1-2) and muay Thai specialist Jian Kai Chee (3-4) do battle in the opening round.
ONE FC 7: Return of Warriors takes place February 2 at Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
