Representing Team Stungun, “The Big Heart” Yoon Chang Min, 25, of Busan, South Korea was one of the winners at “ONE: Mark of Greatness.” During his post-fight interview, the undefeated mixed martial artist expressed his interest in fighting Edward “The Ferocious” Kelly, 35, who is training out of the Team Lakay gym in La Trinidad, Benguet, Philippines.

ONE Championship held “ONE: Mark of Greatness” at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on December 6, 2019. In the third bout of the evening, Yoon defeated Rodian “The Redeemer” Menchavez, 29, who is training out of Brawlers’ Lab in Valenzuela City, Metro Manila, Philippines, in an MMA bout at a catchweight of 72kg.

Right after the victory, Mitch “The Dragon” Chilson asked Yoon inside the cage what he wanted next. The undefeated South Korean MMA fighter said he wanted to fight Kelly.

“I don’t have much record yet but I’m on my way up there,” Yoon said through Michael Park as the translator. “I would like to face Edward Kelly. I would like to see how I go against a real striker. Mr. Chatri (Sityodtong), please give me an opportunity. I’ll do well.”

Kelly is coming out of a loss at “ONE: Age of Dragons,” which was held at the Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China on November 16, 2019. Facing Yoon and be the one to break the undefeated record of the South Korean fighter would be a great comeback for the Team Lakay fighter.

At “ONE: Age of Dragons,” Kelly competed in an MMA bout in the featherweight division against Tang Kai, 24, of Shaoyang, Hunan, China. The Chinese contender won via unanimous decision.

After the loss to Tang, Kelly now holds a professional MMA record of 12 wins and 8 losses. The Team Lakay representative has been competing in ONE Championship since 2013.

On the other hand, Yoon was able to maintain his undefeated record by winning at “ONE: Mark of Greatness.” The Team Stungun representative now has a professional MMA record of 4 wins and 0 loss.

“ONE: Mark of Greatness” marked Yoon’s fourth ONE Championship bout and win in 2019. Watch all the bouts here:
