Legend Fighting Championship 11 coming this April 27, 2013

To all the MMA fans out there. Here's something you wouldn't want to miss.
Malaysia will play host to the eleventh installment of the hugely successful Legend Fighting Championship at Chinwoo Stadium in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The tournament will bring in national champion Mixed Martial Artists from throughout the region in the Asia-Pacific Championship of MMA. Featuring twelve action-packed fights including three Asia-Pacific title bouts, Legend 11 promises to be an unforgettable night of world-class martial arts. 


“We chose Malaysia for Legend 11 due to the strong grass-roots following that we have among local Malaysians.  MMA is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, and our Malaysian fans have shown incredible support during our rise to prominence in the Asia-Pacific. Ratings on our local Malaysian broadcast partner AXN have been outstanding,” explained Chris Pollak, Managing Director and co-founder of Legend Fighting Championship.  “With the support of the Kementerian Belia & Sukan, we are looking forward to holding many more events in Malaysia in the coming years, and partnering with them to develop the burgeoning MMA scene in the country.”

With Legend Fighting Championship broadcast by AXN in Malaysia and the rest of Southeast Asia, and syndicated across a total of 152 countries via 22 broadcast partners, a global MMA audience of over 279 million homes will have their eyes on Malaysia at the end of April.  

In the main event, Legend Lightweight Champion, Jadamba Narantungalag from Mongolia, will look to defend his title against Japan’s Koji “The Commander” Ando and his devastating grappling and ground-and-pound game.

Japan's Yusuke "Bancho" Kawanago puts Featherweight Title on the line against Australia's Rob "Ruthless" Lisita at Legend 10. Legend 10, Featherweight Championship (Co-main event): Australian fighter Rob "Ruthless" Lisita versus Japan's Yusuke "Bancho" Kawanago.
