(Press Release) - January 2011 will mark one year since Australia’s Adrian Pang fought South Korea’s Nam Yui Chul to a draw at Legend Fighting Championship 1. Fight fans hailed it as one of Asia-Pacific MMA’s greatest lightweight clashes, and on January 27, both men will return to the Legend ring for a rematch to prove who the superior fighter truly is.
With Pang holding both the Legend Lightweight Championship and a recent victory over Nam’s friend and teammate Yu Woo Sung, Nam will be on the hunt for both the title and revenge – things that Pang will not give up easily.
In the co-main event of the evening, Rod MacSwain and Kim Hoon will clash for Legend’s Welterweight Championship. MacSwain has established himself as New Zealand’s top MMA prospect, compiling an 11-1 record over the past two years, knocking out or submitting ten of his opponents in the process.
However, with a 22-second KO victory against top Australian contender Justin Murray at Legend 3, the veteran fighter Kim has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with.
Also on the card, Chinese wrestling champion Yao Honggang steps into the Legend ring to take on young Australian phenomenon Michael Mortimer. Yao has compiled an impressive 5-1 record against some of China’s toughest bantamweights, while Mortimer has finished his last three opponents in impressive fashion.
Indonesia’s Yohan Mulia Legowo takes on Jo Nam Jin of South Korea. Legowo earned Submission Of The Night honors for his victory over India’s Hardeep Singh at Legend 3, skills that he will need against Jo, an explosive ground-fighter.
The winners of these two bouts will square off against one another for Legend’s Bantamweight Championship at Legend 5.
In addition, Legend veterans Tony Rossini (Australia), Pat Crawley (New Zealand), Li Jingliang (China), and Choi Yeong Gwang (South Korea). Join these 18 national champion fighters as they close out the Year Of The Tiger with a night of unforgettable MMA action!
Legend 4 takes place inside the AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong and will premiere on Pay-Per-View in the US and Canada at 8PM ET/5PM PT on January 28th.
