This Friday at ONE Championship: Quest for Greatness (also known as ONE Championship 59), an eagerly anticipated 125-pound contest will go down when one of the organization’s top flyweight stars, Ann Osman, takes on promotional newcomer May Ooi.
Osman (5-3), also known as “Athena” is coming off a first-round knockout victory over Vy Srey Khouch. The 31-year-old has competed in all eight of her professional bouts under the ONE Champion banner. All her career victories come in the first round, with submission wins over Haiat Youssef and Walaa Kamaly, as well as a knockout over Aya Saber. She is one of the most promising prospects in the 125lb flyweight division and has long been tipped to become one of the division’s biggest stars.
Ooi (2-2), is a former olympic swimmer who transitioned to MMA in 2013. She is currently on a two-fight losing streak, dropping back-to-back unanimous decisions. Prior to the losses, she had picked up two knockout victories. She lives in Singapore and trains out of the Brazilian Fight Club MMA.
ONE Championship: Quest for Greatness (also known as ONE Championship 59) takes place on Friday August 18 from the Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The event will be aired live on pay-per-view at 7am EST via the official ONE FC website.
