(PRESS RELEASE) – Dubai, UAE – Physique TV, the MENA region’s first and only 24 hour HD television channel dedicated to fitness, healthy living, lifestyle, combat and extreme sports, today announces the live broadcast of ONE Championship ‘Clash of Heroes’. The MMA event will air live on Physique TV this 29th January at 3PM UAE and will be available with Arabic commentary across the Middle East and North Africa viewers.

Physique TV CEO Hamid Dizji comments: “Mixed martial arts sport is the fastest growing sport in the world and Physique TV is thrilled to continue as the exclusive broadcaster of ONE Championship in the MENA region for 2016 and bring world-class MMA fights to our avid viewers.”

When ONE Championship returns to Kuala Lumpur on 29th January, national pride takes center stage as homegrown MMA star Ev "E.T." Ting takes on Filipino MMA hero Eric "The Natural" Kelly in the main event of the evening. Get ready for another action-packed night of MMA action as ONE Championship brings its unique brand of world-class sports entertainment to Stadium Negara.

CEO of ONE Championship, Victor Cui stated, “2016 is going to be such a phenomenal year for mixed martial arts in Asia and we’re doing our best to put together the most exciting fights for fans all across the world. Ev Ting has really proven that homegrown Malaysian mixed martial artists can go toe-to-toe with the best in the world and will now face his sternest test against one of the best fighters in his division in Eric Kelly.”

26-year-old Ev “E.T.” Ting is one of Malaysia’s most promising young talents. His exceptional 10-3 record has come against solid opposition. Fresh off a Guillotine Choke submission victory in his last bout, Ting is known to be a ferocious striker with a well-rounded ground game making him a complete fighter. Ting will look to play off the energy of his hometown crowd when he takes on the Philippines’ Eric Kelly.

Eric “The Natural” Kelly of Baguio City, Philippines is undoubtedly one of the most talented fighters to come out of the country. With just one defeat on his professional record, Kelly has decimated opponents inside the cage with his ability to secure fight-ending finishes. Of his twelve victories, nine have come by submission. Kelly has long been due for a title shot but will have to get past Malaysia’s Ev Ting first to continue in his quest for ONE Championship gold.

In the co-main event of the evening, Team Lakay veteran lightweight standout Eduard “Landslide” Folayang has long been among the elite mixed martial artists in the Philippines. Folayang continues his stellar career with wins over some of the most highly-regarded opponents. Since his previous fight, the 32-year old has added an improved grappling game to go with his great Wushu base. Folayang will now put his skills against Japan’s Tetsuya Yamada next.

Tetsuya Yamada of Kanigawa, Japan is a promising young lightweight with a penchant for spectacular finishes. The 25-year-old has finished 12 of his 15 wins either by submission or by highlight reel knockout and will look to replicate his success when he makes his debut inside the ONE Cage against the Philippines’ Eduard Folayang.
