Chan Heng to headline Malaysian MMA event

Top Cambodian mixed martial artist Chan Heng will headline Warrior Fighting Championship’s inaugural fight card, the 11-bout Rumble in Penang, Saturday night at the Gurney Paragon Arena in George Town, Malaysia, with a bantamweight clash against Malaysia’s Muhammad Hanif bin Zainal.

A Fighter Club member Chan (7-2) endured a first round mauling at the hands of compatriot Meas Meu in ONE FC: Rise of the Kingdom at Koh Pich Theatre on September 12, eventually succumbing to a rear naked choke submission.

Bin Zainal (6-3-1) has been away from the cage for well over a year after also suffering a first round defeat, an armbar submission by Taiwan’s Rocky Lee at Legend FC 11 on April 27, 2013.
