Training out of Ultimate MMA Academy in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan, 20, redeemed herself from her first professional mixed martial arts loss in front of her countrymen on July 12, 2019. She was one of the winners at “ONE: Masters of Destiny” at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
ONE Championship included four kickboxing contests, two Muay Thai matches and 10 mixed martial arts bouts on the “ONE: Masters of Destiny” card. In the 11th bout of the evening, Radzuan faced Jomary “The Zamboanganian Fighter” Torres, 23, of the Philippines in an MMA match in the women’s atomweight division with Yoshiniro Umeki as the referee.
Radzuan weathered an aggressive opening round from Torres to take the action to the ground and lock in a deep triangle choke. The Filipino fighter tried to power out of the submission attempt but ultimately tapped out to give the hometown hero the comeback win.
Umeki put a stop to the atomweight bout after 3 minutes and 7 seconds in the first round. Radzuan submitted Torres via triangle choke.
Winning at “ONE: Masters of Destiny” improved the professional MMA record of Radzuan to 5 wins and 1 loss. On the other hand, Torres now has 4 wins and 4 losses.
