    Odd.

    ONE FC has popular women fighters and Vietnam has a history of having decent women wrestlers.

    You would think some would transition to MMA.

    Would be surprised if ONE doesn't sign Bui Yen Ly for this show. Last year she beat Janet Todd, and had a razor close fight with Josephine Knutsson within the span of four days. She's married to a (female) competition bjj player also. I'm sure ONE could find a way to market her.

    I saw it but had already corrected your errant copy/pasting elsewhere so didn't want to be a dick twice in a week ;)

    Also more proof that no-one ever reads anything beyond the thread title

    'ONE’s debut in Vietnam to be an all standup fighting affair.'

    And that's just the audience.

    j/k

    P.S. A while back I added fake over the top names to a list of upcoming fights. Still no one has noticed.

    Vietnam along with the Philippines were the first SEA countries with longer BJJ/grappling history compared to it's neighbors. Thailand could've produced more mma fighters but they were in Vietnam's situation a decade ago regarding weird restrictions against MMA.

    Lethwei in Myanmar is getting a bigger audience with its WLC. You can catch it on fight pass.
