07 February 2018 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced its return to Malaysia’s bustling capital city of Kuala Lumpur. “ONE: Visions of Victory” is set to ignite the Axiata Stadium with an evening of authentic martial arts action.
While a main event is yet to be announced, ONE Championship has revealed a handful of compelling bouts featuring the absolute best in local and international martial arts talent. One of the bouts will be between Burn “The Hitman” Soriano, 31, of Ilocos Sur, Philippines and Muhammad Aiman, 23, of Malaysia.
Soriano is coming off a tough contest against China’s Chen Lei in November 2017. The Filipino featherweight features an aggressive style, with solid power and seasoned grappling technique leading to all of his wins to date coming by way of stoppage.
Soriano’s 15-second spinning back fist knockout of Indonesia’s Mario Sitya Wirawan in 2016 was one of the fastest finishes in ONE history. A national kickboxing champion with a kickboxing record of 14-3, the Filipino fighter has shown steady improvement over his last few contests and now looks for victory next against a Malaysian opponent.
On the other hand, Aiman is a former amateur standout and is one of Malaysia’s fastest rising young martial arts talents. Featuring a well-rounded skill set, he has impressed in his time inside the ONE Championship cage thus far, defeating Hisyam Samsudin by unanimous decision in his first match in the promotion.
In Aiman’s most recent contest, he thoroughly dominated Chinese prospect Yang Fei to win a unanimous decision. The Malaysian fighter is now set to take on his next challenge in Soriano.
