Fu Chang Xin to make ONE Championship debut at ‘ONE: Battle for the Heavens’ in Guangzhou, China

Fu Chang Xin, 25, will make his ONE Championship debut on July 7, 2018. He will face a fellow Chinese mixed martial artist at “ONE: Battle for the Heavens,” which will take place at the Guangzhou Tianhe Gymnasium in Guangzhou, China.

At “ONE: Battle for the Heavens,” Fu will compete in the bantamweight division against “The Demolition Man” Tang De Pan, 26. The bantamweight bout between the two Chinese MMA fighters will be the seventh bout of the evening.

Hailing from Harbin, Heilongjiang, China, Fu began training to compete in MMA in 2011. Three years later, he took the plunge by making his professional debut and has since experienced great success, winning the majority of his bouts via stoppage, even claiming the CKF Championship along the way.

What sets Fu apart from other Chinese mixed martial artists is the fact that he has already competed abroad several times in his young career and is undefeated against foreign opposition. With a professional MMA record of 7 wins and 1 loss, he brings an impressive win streak into his ONE Championship debut.

To make a successful promotional debut, Fu has to conquer Tang, who is from Yongzhou, Hunan, China. After three ONE Championship bouts, the latter has 2 wins and 1 loss.

Headlining “ONE: Battle for the Heavens” are Yodcherry Sityodtong, 19, of Thailand and Kai Ting “Killer Bee” Chuang, 23, of Chinese Taipei. They will compete for the very first ONE Super Series Kickboxing Atomweight World Champion belt.

“World-class martial arts makes a triumphant return to the beautiful city of Guangzhou with another spectacular event,” ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong stated. He added that Yodcherry and Chuang will be joined by “several of the very best martial arts talent from China and the world.”

Tokyo’s Tatsumitsu Wada to make ONE Championship debut at ‘ONE: Battle for the Heavens’ in Guangzhou, China

Fighting out of Japan, two-time DEEP Flyweight Champion Tatsumitsu “The Sweeper” Wada, 29, is scheduled to make his ONE Championship debut on July 7, 2018. The Japanese mixed martial artist and his Filipino-Australian opponent Reece “Lightning” McLaren are co-headlining “ONE: Battle for the Heavens” at the Guangzhou Tianhe Gymnasium in Guangzhou, China.

Wada and McLaren will compete in the flyweight division at “ONE: Battle for the Heavens.” Currently reigning as the ONE Flyweight World Champion is Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio, 29, of the Philippines.

Originally from the Yamanashi prefecture, Wada moved to Tokyo after high school to further his martial arts career. He started his training with karate and later added judo to his growing skill set.

Competing professionally since 2008, Wada has established a record of 19 wins, 8 losses, 2 draws and 1 No Contest. The beginning of his career was rough as he lost in his first five bouts, all in 2008, but in 2009, he had his first MMA win, which seemed to have given him the momentum that he needed.

Wada is riding a huge wave of momentum coming into his ONE Championship debut. He is currently on an eight-bout win streak, which includes five stoppage wins.

The last time Wada lost in the cage was in 2014 when he was submitted by Yuki Motoya at “Deep- 68 Impact” via rear-naked choke. In the same year, Wada redeemed himself by submitting Ryuichi Miki via rear-naked choke at “Deep- Dream Impact 2014: Omisoka Special.”

Following the victory over Miki, Wada defeated Gyu Hwa Kim and Jae Hyun So in 2015, Jae Nam Yoo, Yuya Shibata and Kai Kara-France in 2016 and Kosuke Suzuki in 2017. In Wada’s most recent bout, which was on April 28, 2018 at “Deep- 83 Impact,” he defeated Makoto Takahashi via unanimous decision.
