The Kota Kinabalu fighter represents Borneo Tribal Squad, and knows that she has the potential to truly raise the profile of female sportswomen in Malaysia with a win on Friday.
Her only obstacle is Fight G’s Lim, who dominated Nadia Atiqah in her debut fight at the Ultimate Satria Championships in July this year.
The bantamweight cage artist is eager to make her fellow countrymen proud and hopefully follow in the footsteps of other homegrown sporting heroes such as squash legend Nicol Ann David and badminton prodigy Lee Chong Wei – individuals that Osman holds in high regard.
“I watched Lee Chong Wei at the world championships this year. He lost but you can see that he tried his very best,” she said.
“He always gets a lot of good feedback because of his heart and character, not just because he’s good at his game.”
The 27-year old is currently being coached by One FC featherweight phenomenon Al “Pyro” Lias Mansor, whose experience in the cage has been a boon to Osman’s preparations for her upcoming match-up at Total Domination.
““My coach (AJ Ferro) keeps me grounded and everything I’ve learnt about MMA has come from him”
"He is a former One FC fighter. He knows how it works and I think most of my advice and training comes from him."
The bout will be One FC’s second female MMA match-up in its two years of operations. The inaugural female only showdown was featured in the War of the Lions, held in March 2012 at the Singapore stadium, where hometown heroine Nicole Chua submitted India’s Jeet Toshi with a rear-naked choke in the first round.
