Like in the promotion’s recent events, strikes-only bouts under ONE Super Series will be mixed with the mixed martial arts matches.
On the MMA card, Ev “E.T.” Ting, 28, of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will compete against Koji “The Commander” Ando, 33, of Japan in the lightweight division. They are both former ONE Lightweight World Championship title challengers.
Living and training out of Auckland, New Zealand, Ting owns a professional MMA record of 15 wins and 4 losses. Among his 15 wins, 5 were via knockout and 4 were via submission.
Ting is one of the most talented competitors to come out of Malaysia. He won six of his last seven bouts.
In Ting’s most recent bout, he defeated highly-regarded Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Ariel “Tarzan” Sexton, 36, of Costa Rica via split decision. In the Kiwi-Malaysian fighter’s next ONE Championship bout, he will face one of the fiercest competitors from Japan.
Having been a professional martial artist since 2008, Ando is known for his diverse striking skills and solid submission grappling credentials. In his most recent contest, he lost to Timofey Nastyukhin, 28, of Russia via unanimous decision.
“ONE: Pinnacle of Power” will be headlined by reigning ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan, 30, of China and Laura Balin, 38, of Argentina.
