Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Eddie “The Magician” Ng has been away from the ring for almost a year, but now returns stronger than ever, with a more all-rounded game using a variety of takedown, striking and grappling moves.

The Hong Kong-born, Singapore-based Ng says that training at Evolve MMA gym with top fighters and instructors from various disciplines, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Wrestling and Boxing, has better prepared him for the unpredictability of MMA fighting.

He hopes to put that training to good use in his upcoming battle with the more experienced French fighter Arnaud Lepont at ONE Fighting Championship: Kings & Champions, which will be held on 5 April at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

xinmsn caught up with the 26-year-old at the gym to get to know this up-and-coming Asian star. Click on the images above to read more.

Not being scared when Mount Tai collapses before one's eyes; not being frightened when the thunder claps nearby. Good luck, mate.
