Causeway rivalry set for Rise of Kings

One Fighting Championship has announced that Singaporean striker Bruce Loh will replace the injured Radeem Rahman at the upcoming Rise of Kings event.

MMA News: Bruce Loh.

Loh will battle Malaysian submission specialist Gianni Subba at the October 6 fight in what should be a classic battle of styles. After selling out arenas in Indonesia, Malaysia and Manila, One FC is set to return to the famed Singapore Indoor Stadium for what is expected to be the biggest event in Asian Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) history.

Singaporean Loh (2-1-0) is a rough and tumble fighter who lives and trains in the Lion City. His credentials as a martial artist includes a Gold at the 2008 National ShanShou tournament, Bronze at the 2002 Penang Boxing tournament and Bronze at the 2007 Southeast Asian Submission tournament.

Loh is a blue belt in Brazilian-Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), currently trains at Impact MMA in Singapore and is an unarmed combat instructor for the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF). Loh also holds professional MMA victories over Shodiyar Jurabekov and Ahmad Nazharul needing only sixteen seconds to defeat a seasoned Nazharul in his second professional MMA fight. Singaporean fans will see the return of their hometown hero to MMA when he steps up to face the ever so tough Malaysian submission specialist Gianni Subba.

Nineteen year old Gianni Subba fights out of Monarchy Gym in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Subba first learned MMA when he trained with the legendary Jeremy Horn and entered MMA as a professional in 2012.

Rahman withdrew from the Rise of Kings event after dislocating his finger in training as reported by ESPNSTAR.com.
