KUALA LUMPUR: Four Malaysian mixed martial arts (MMA) athletes will be taking on their opponents at home soil at ONE Championship's upcoming bout in Kuala Lumpur, this December 7.

Malaysian athletes Agilan Thani, Gianni Subba, Jihin Radzuan as well as newcomer Mohammed Mahmoud is set to dominate in the cage to make the country proud.

Among the highlights of the event, would be former ONE Welterweight World Title challenger Agilan taking on Kyrgystan's Kiamrian Abbasov Singh Meena and Gianni going against Ma Hao Bin of China.

Agilan is one of the most remarkable athletes Malaysia has ever produced. The former MIMMA champion won six bouts in a row on the global stage of ONE Championship to earn a shot at the title.
The top contender trains daily at Monarchy MMA in Kuala Lumpur under well-respected Belgian BJJ coach Samir Mrabet, but also regularly travels to the United States to sharpen his skills at the world-famous Team Quest.

Another top Malaysian athlete is Gianni Subba, who has forged a reputation as one of the most exciting talents to watch in the ONE cage.

He spent his childhood growing up in both Hawaii and his mother’s hometown of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, but he left at the age of 16 to finish his education in Salt Lake City, Utah.

While in the United States, he learned to wrestle. In 2010, he decided to move back to Malaysia in order to pursue his dreams as a professional mixed martial artist.

Since then, he has defeated several former world title challengers to cement his place at the top of a stacked flyweight division.

Meanwhile, former MIMMA Women's Champion Jihin Radzuan will be facing Jenny Huang of Taiwan. 

She is one of the finest female martial artists to emerge from Malaysia. Jihin joined ONE Championship in March 2018, and has since put together two impressive victories.

In the main event, Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex of Thailand will take on Luis Regis of Australia.

ONE: Destiny Of Champions will be held at the Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil.
