Singaporean female mixed martial artist Kirstie Gannaway, 24, is looking to become the country’s first ever mixed martial arts (MMA) world champion but she faces a massive test next Friday night when she faces April Osenio at ONE: AGE OF NATIONS in Kuala Lumpur.
Gannaway will be looking to improve on her 1-0 record when she makes the short trip to the Malaysian capital, but is taking on an opponent who is established as one of the top Wushu practitioners at her weight in the Philippines.
Osenio has also won numerous submission grappling tournaments and Gannaway is expecting a tough fight against the Filipino.
“She fights out of Team Lakay which is a great team but at Evolve MMA I work with the best trainers in the world and have been honing my skills with boxing world champions, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) world champions, Muay Thai world champions and wrestling Olympians so I am ready for anything.”
