Legend Fighting Championship - Malaysia Debut

This coming Saturday - all eyes on you Malaysia. 

Malaysia will be hosting the 11th installment of the hugely successful Legend Fighting Championship at Chinwoo Stadium in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Taking place this coming 27th April, the tournament will bring in national champion Mixed Martial Artists from throughout the region in the Asia-Pacific Championship of MMA. Featuring twelve action-packed fights including three Asia-Pacific title bouts, Legend 11 promises to be an unforgettable night of world-class martial arts. 

"We chose Malaysia for Legend 11 due to the strong grass-roots following that we have among local Malaysias". MMA is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, and our Malaysia fans have shown incredible support during our rise to prominence in the Asia-Pacific. Ratings on our local Malaysian broadcast partner AXN have been outstanding." explained Chris Pollak, Managing Director and co-founder of Legend Fighting Championship. 

The world will have their eyes on Malaysia this coming 27th April as the Legend Fighting Championship will be broadcasted by AXN in Malaysia and the rest of Southeast Asia, and syndicated across a total of 152 counties via 22 broadcast partners. That's a global MMA audience of over 1 billion viewers! 

In the main event, Legend Lightweight Champion, Jadamba Narantungalag from Mongolia, will look to defend his title against Japan’s Koji “The Commander” Ando and his devastating grappling and ground-and-pound game.

Australia's Rob Hill welcomes former King of Pancrase, Koji Oishi to the Legend ring at Legend 10.
Japan's Yusuke "Bancho" Kawanago puts Featherweight Title on the line against Australia's Rob "Ruthless" Lisita at Legend 10. 
Legend 11 will also feature two co-main events: the Legend Bantamweight Title will be on the line for China’s “The Execution” Ji Xian, and Filipino knock-out artist Agustin “Tamasak” Delarmino, Jr., while in the second co-main event, China’s top welterweight Li “The Leech” Jingliang, looks to claim the Welterweight Title against Luke Jumeau, the well-rounded fighter from New Zealand who is equally dangerous on his feet and on the ground.

Local hopes will be on the Malaysian contingent of Muhammad Hanif Bin Zainal ( left)  and Sam Chan (right).  Both fighters are seasoned Legend Fighting Championship fighters and will be looking to use their home advantage to further their rise as contenders in their respective weight classes.

Muhammad Hanif & Sam Chan - our MALAYSIAN fighter!
