UFC CHAMPION RAFAEL DOS ANJOS AND ONE CHAMPION SHINYA AOKI TO CONDUCT SPECIAL JOINT SEMINAR AT EVOLVE MMA.
Rafael Dos Anjos recently became the first Brazilian in history to win the UFC lightweight title and his Evolve MMA team mate Shinya Aoki already holds the ONE Championship belt. On 11 April the two of them will make history when they conduct a special joint seminar in Singapore.
Aoki and Dos Anjos might come from completely different countries and backgrounds but they have both established themselves as the leading lightweights in their respective organizations. The Brazilian won the UFC belt by beating Anthony Pettis recently while the Japanese fighter has been ONE Championship’s 155 lbs title holder since 2013.
It is extremely rare to see two of the top fighters in an MMA division in the same room together but martial arts enthusiasts in Singapore will have the opportunity to train with both Aoki and Dos Anjos in a seminar which starts at 2pm at the Evolve Orchard Central facility.
Between them Aoki and Do Anjos have won 61 fights and beaten the likes of Anthony Pettis, Nate Diaz, Benson Henderson, Donald Cerrone, Kamal Shalorus, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Joachim Hansen, Eddie Alvarez and Caol Uno and, as well as being the top fighters in the division, both are long term holders of BJJ black belts.
At the special joint seminar in Singapore two of MMA’s most famous champions will be sharing some of the tips and tricks which have helped them to reach the pinnacle of the division in their respective organizations. Tickets are available priced at 199 SGD for the general public and 149 SGD for Evolve MMA members.
Aoki is in Singapore to prepare for his ONE: ‘Warrior’s Quest’ Title defence against Koji Ando at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 22 May while Dos Anjos is expected to make the first defence of his UFC belt later this year with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Donald Cerrone fighting for the right to face him.
