Top Malaysian Bantamweight contender Raymond Tan (1-0) has been forced off the ONE FC 7: Return of Warriors fight card, due to an undisclosed reason.
The Malaysian, who was originally slated to face Thanh Vu (2-1) in ONE FC’s final Bantamweight Grand Prix Elimination bout, will now be replaced on 2-days’ notice by Mohd Fouzein (3-4). Fouzein is a Malaysian Bantamweight looking to get his professional MMA career back on track. He recently saw his 2-fight win streak snapped, following a submission loss againt Mohd Zakhir in December, last year.
ONE FC CEO Victor Cui, used the Twitter platform to inform fans of the change-up:
