HAYATUN Najihin has become the second Malaysian female mixed martial arts (MMA) exponent to be signed under the One Championship promotion.
The 18-year-old follows in the footsteps of Sabahan Ann Osman, who was the first Malaysian female to join the One Championship roster.
“It’s an honour for me to join Asia’s biggest martial arts platform and I plan to honour those that have come before me.”
“I know this is a big opportunity in my career and I can’t wait to show the Malaysian fans that they have a new warrior they can root for.”
The up-and-coming prospect and the Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts (MIMMA) Season Four winner attracted the attention of Asia’s largest sports media property after showing promising performances through her 6-0 professional muay thai record which saw her win the Asian Women Championship title as well as the IMMAF Asia bronze medal.
“I am extremely glad for the opportunity that was given to me.”
“After a successful amateur career, I am now looking forward to a long and fruitful professional career.”
“It’s going to be difficult but I’m young, hungry and together with hard work and dedication, I know I can achieve great things.”
The Johor lass has a blue belt in Brazilian jujitsu. She is also a former SEA Open gold and silver medalist in muay, and is currently ranked ninth in the women’s pound-for-pound in Southeast Asia.
