Jihin Radzuan made her One Championship promotional debut in her last fight against Pooja Tomar at ONE: Visions of Victory on 9th Mars this year where she won via 2nd round Triangle Choke.
Pricilla Hertati Lumban Gaol´s professional MMA career had a rough start when she lost her first two fights but has managed to win her last 3 fights via first-round stoppage.
Wushu World Champion and MIMMA Women’s Champion Jihin Radzuan is one of the finest female martial artists to emerge from Malaysia. She began training in silat briefly when she was just six years old. She then joined Ultimate MMA Academy shortly after, training in various martial arts disciplines. After just three months of training, she competed in Muay Thai for the first time. Driven by a hunger to compete, she followed that up with bouts in wushu, BJJ, kickboxing, and boxing, and captured a wushu world championship along the way. Radzuan made her professional debut in July 2017 with a quick knockout victory, which earned her a spot on the global stage of ONE Championship. Radzuan returns to action now to face Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol.
