ONE Fighting Championship yesterday confirmed the fight, after making an announcement on Twitter.
Featuring a 205-pound headliner between former Strikeforce Light-Heavyweight Renato ‘Babalu’ Sobral and Tatsuya Mizuno, ONE FC 4: Destiny of Warriors is set to go down on June 23rd at the Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The entire event may air on Facebook, but nothing is confirmed yet.
Gregor Gracie(6-1) returns to the ONE FC cage after decisioning Seok Mo Kim in the promotion’s debut ‘Champion vs. Champion’ event, and will now be looking to build on his current 4-fight winning streak.
The BJJ practitioner, who teaches Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu alongside UFC Hall-of-Famer Renzo Grazie in New York City, is a Mixed Martial Artist who rarely goes to a decision, with only 2 of his 7 fights going the full 3-rounds.
Meanwhile, his much less-experienced opponent Adam Kayoom(2-1), will be looking to make his ONE FC debut and mark it with a win.
Aged 34, Kayoom has already fought in several famed MMA organizations, such as Legacy Fighting Championships, DARE Fight Sports and Xtreme Fighting Championships.
The Malaysian signed a 3-year contract with ONE FC late last year, and will now no doubt face the toughest test of his Mixed Martial Arts career.
Stay tuned for more updates, as ONE FC is set to make more match-ups in the near future.
