Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series (OWS) will return with its first live event of 2020 next Wednesday, 19 February, with a card stacked with some of the best up-and-coming talents in martial arts.
The OWS 10 card will feature 15 match-ups as athletes from five continents aim to make a big impression and earn a contract to compete on the main ONE Championship roster.
There will be 13 competitors who will make their OWS debuts in Singapore, but the bill also features a host of familiar faces who will try to build on their previous success and make the leap to the global stage.
They include Alan “The Apprentice” Philpott, who is riding high after wins against Myeong Gu Kim and Zechariah Lange in 2019 and will attempt to make it three in a row against Ahmed “The Prince” Faress.
Plus, Brunei mixed martial arts pioneer Adib “Deep” Sulaiman will return to the ring for what should be another exciting contest. The Team Wolfpack representative has never seen the judges’ scorecards in four professional bouts.
His opponent, Susovan “Lil Tiger” Ghosh from Team Relentless in Mumbai, India has also only seen one of his eight match-ups go the distance, so fans should watch out for a finish in this one.
