(Macao, Aug 12, 2016) – Former ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes and lightweight contender Eddie “The Magician” Ng held a brief open workout at The Venetian Macao to showcase their various striking and grappling techniques to media in attendance. Both fighters are scheduled to see action inside the ONE Championship cage in separate bouts on Saturday night, 13 August, at ONE: HEROES OF THE WORLD at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena.

Moraes will compete in the main event of the card against Kyrgyzstan’s Tilek Batyrov in a five-round contest for the interim ONE Flyweight World Championship while Ng will face the Philippines’ Honorio “The Rock” Banario.

“In my mind I am still champion. I have been through so much in my life and I feel like I’m in the best condition right now. I’m going to get this belt and then I’m going right after the champion to get the real belt back. I learned a lot about myself in the loss, I won’t make the same mistakes again. I will come in better prepared,” said Moraes.

“Getting the chance to fight and compete in front of my friends and family is special to me. I’ve waited a long time to get physically right to resume my career and now I’m ready for the best fighters in my division. Honorio Banario is a solid contender and had an impressive victory in his last fight. I am excited to test myself against a worthy competitor,” said Ng.
