Mitch ‘The Dragon’ Chilson returns to face AJ ‘Pyro’ at ONE FC 4: Destiny of Warriors


By Thinesh John

ONE Fighting Championship has announced another match-up for ONE FC 4: Destiny of Warriors.

Mitch Chilson will now fight AJ ‘Pyro’ Lias Mansor at the June 23rd event, which takes place at the Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The promotion has yet to confirm whether the entire fight card will air online.

The organization revealed the announcement of this bout on their official Facebook page.

‘Pyro’ brings a 1-1 resume to the ONE FC cage, after a recent submission defeat to Majee ‘Major’ Overall in January, under the DARE Fight Sports banner. Representing Borneo Tribal Squad, his upcoming fight at ONE FC 4: Destiny of Warriors will no doubt serve as the biggest fight of his professional Mixed Martial Arts career.

‘Pyro’ has also trained with Juggernaut Fight Club, in Singapore. He’s well-known as a Muay Thai fighter, and has won several No-Gi grappling tournaments.

Welcoming him to the organization, will be a familiar face in Mitch Chilson. The 34-year-old American recently suffered his first professional setback when he succumbed to a Rear-Naked-Choke submission loss at the hands of URCC Featherweight Champion Eric Kelly, in the promotion’s ‘Champion vs. Champion’ event last year.

Prior to that loss, Chilson had picked up stoppage wins over Jingxiong Zhang and Guobin Xue under the Martial Combat series.

Fighting out of Evolve MMA in Singapore, Chilson will be looking to get his career back on track and will be hoping to put his devastating Muay Thai to good use.

The latest ONE FC 4: Destiny of Warriors card now includes:

* Renato Sobral vs. Tatsuya Mizuno

* Roger Huerta vs. Phil Baroni

* Masakazu Imanari vs. Leandro Issa

* Eddie Ng vs. Arnaud Lepont

* Gregor Gracie vs. Adam Kayoom

* Eric Kelly vs. Bae Young Kwon

* Mitch Chilson vs. AJ ‘Pyro’ Lias Mansor

* Allamurad Karayev vs. Roldan Sangcha-an

* Rodrigo Praxedes vs. Marcos Escobar

* Peter Davis vs. Quek Kim Hock
