Muhammad “Jungle Cat” Aiman, 23, of Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia will be heading into hostile territory in his next trip to the ONE Championship ring. He is slated to face “Rock Man” Chen Lei, 29, of Changsha, China in a three-round bantamweight contest at “ONE: Beyond the Horizon” on September 8, 2018 at the Baoshan Arena in Shanghai, China.
“It is going to be tough, but it is going to be a war,” Aiman stated. “I am going to keep going and he is going to keep going so I am really excited to fight him.”
Aiman expects an arena full of fans cheering against him but he is looking forward to keeping his winning momentum going. Currently coming off back-to-back unanimous decision wins over “The Pugilist” Yang Fei, 26, of China and Rin Saroth, 24, of Cambodia, the Negeri Sembilan native is nothing short of excited at the opportunity of challenging an undefeated prospect such as Chen.
“I was really excited, because he is tough, and he has a good name,” Aiman said of Chen. “He is undefeated, and I always thought I would fight him one day.”
Chen is riding high on an impressive winning streak of his own. He is unbeaten in his first eight professional bouts with four of those wins under the ONE Championship banner and all ending in spectacular finishes.
While Chen holds a professional mixed martial arts record of 8 wins and 0 loss, Aiman has 4 wins and 2 losses. The Malaysian contender, who is a former Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts (MIMMA) featherweight champion, knows that when he enters the ring at “ONE: Beyond the Horizon,” he is going to be in for an action-packed contest against the well-rounded Chinese hero.
