MMA event washed out, Chan Heng invited back

The inaugural Warrior Fighting Championship mixed martial arts card at the Gurney Paragon Arena in George Town, Malaysia, on Saturday had to be called off after just three bouts as rain made conditions in the cage impossible at the outdoor event.

Cambo-dian bantamweight Chan Heng of A Fighter Club was sche-duled to face Malaysia’s Muhammad Hanif bin Zainal in the headlining match-up of the Rumble in Penang.

According to Chan Heng’s A Fighter trainer Chan Reach, WFC organisers have promised another fight for the 32-year-old Kampong Cham native, with cards expected to be held on a monthly basis.
