One Championship announced Monday that a lightweight tilt between Malaysian star Ev “ET” Ting and former UFC and WEC vet Kamal Shalorus will headline the ONE: Throne of Tigers event in February.
The man they call “ET” will make his return to compete for the second time in his homeland of Malaysia. Ting has quickly established himself as one of the best up and comers in the lightweight division. He will enter the ONE cage riding a three fight win streak. Ting has only lost once on the ONE platform and has finished five of his six opponents.
It has been a while since Shalorus has competed in the cage. We last saw him in 2014 when he failed to bring the ONE Championship lightweight belt home in a loss to Shaniya Aoki by first round submission. Before losing his title bit he did pick up a victory over current champion Folayang.
A win for either fighter may leave them in a good spot to earn a title lightweight title shot.
ONE: Throne of Tigers takes place at Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur Feb. 10. You can watch the event live through online PPV. The event will be broadcast live via online pay-per-view.
