Story

Coming fresh from a career-high win at ONE Fighting Championship: Battle of Heroes in Jakarta, Felipe Enomoto brings the courage and confidence of a champion to face Zorobabel Moreira. His incredibly spirited battle against the highly-favoured Ole Laursen in Jakarta brought the crowd to their feet and left his critics at a loss for words. His courageous spirit won him not only that fight but also the main event of the upcoming ONE Fighting Championship: War of the Lions. Enomoto is a seasoned martial artist who has trained all over the world in a variety of lethal martial arts. He enters the cage with a will to prove that he can dominate a ground fighter in the same way that he dominated the Iron Fists of Ole Laursen.

Zorobabel “Zoro” Moreira, who stands at 187cm, is superbly skilled in utilizing his superior size and reach advantage to punish and demolish his opponents – especially when the fight goes to the ground. Originally from Brazil, Moreira is now based at Evolve MMA in Singapore and his reputation as one of the top lightweights in the region is no accident. With multiple national and international grappling tournaments under his belt, opponents know that going to the ground with this giant is the fastest way to lose a fight. Moreira has also been working relentlessly on adding Muay Thai skills to his arsenal and by harnessing his power into vicious strikes, he is ready to go toe-to-toe with any fighter.

No one expects this explosive fight to go the distance as these two gifted mixed martial artists clash in the main event of the night.

Story

Eddie Ng is one of the best MMA fighters to ever emerge from Hong Kong. He fights and trains with some of the best martial arts practitioners in the world at Evolve MMA, Singapore. A BJJ expert, he has an excellent ground game and is working tirelessly on his standup with several world champion Muay Thai trainers. After an emphatic win at ONE Fighting Championship: Champion vs Champion where he out-paced, out-punched and eventually knocked out his opponent, Ng will hold nothing back from securing another resounding win on Asia’s largest MMA stage at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Muay Thai specialist Jian Kai Chee has proven that he cannot be underestimated. Chee got the attention of critics and fans alike when he made an impressive MMA debut with a fight against the highly-experienced Ole Laursen. Although he lost the fight ultimately, Chee surprised many by dropping Laursen with a well-timed punch in the first round and almost secured a huge upset victory over the champion. Chee’s ability to trade punches with the best in the game is well-known and he credits his arsenal of skill to his diverse background in Muay Thai, Wushu and Sanshou.

This fight may appear to be a classic striker vs grappler matchup at face value, but the undercurrents may make a larger difference to the outcome of this fight than the styles. Chee faces a cross-road in his career as he enters this fight with an even fight record of 3 wins and 3 losses. The importance of winning this fight on the largest stage in Asia will add a huge amount of pressure that could see him performing better, or crumbling. Ng will also be facing one of the hardest fights of his career as he seeks to solidify his position as an MMA champion against a fighter who is desperate to keep his place on future fight cards. With so much at stake for both these fighters, there is no likelihood of this fight going to the judges for a decision.

Story

Kim Hock is a competitive boxer who is single-minded in his determination to win at all costs. Trained by pro-boxer Arvind Lalwani from Juggernaut Fight Club, he has made a swift and decisive advance into the world of combat sports after taking up boxing at the age of 18. The National Boxing Champion has one-punch knockout power and speed that keeps him floating just out of the opponent’s reach. Not content to remain only as a boxer, the full-time student went on to begin training in BJJ and wrestling to equip himself with skills to handle all aspects of cage fighting. His rapidly improving ground skills were endorsed by his selection into the National Wrestling team in early 2012.

Major Overall is a half-Japanese, half-Native Indian fighter from the USA. Based in Bangkok, he trains and instructs in MMA for a living and is fighting out of Muayfit gym. An experienced BJJ practitioner, he is very comfortable fighting from his back and is gradually improving in his Muay Thai game. Overall is coming straight off a convincing win at his pro-MMA debut in DARE where he impressed observers with his aggressive and relentless attacks. He will want to keep the momentum going by defeating “The Hulk” in his second professional fight. Taking on this fight on such short notice may compromise Overall’s ability to match his opponent’s cardio endurance, but it definitely makes no impact on his skills and fighting prowess.

To say that this is the most important fight of these men’s budding MMA careers would be an understatement. Both Overall and Kim have a lot to prove in this fight and fans can expect to see them making every second count as they search for a quick submission or a decisive KO. Overall must take the fight to the ground early to capitalize on Quek’s weakness, but he will first have to get past the dangerous fists of the boxing champion in order to succeed.
