Jomary Torres is set to make her ONE Championship return when she takes on Lin Heqin on the undercard of ONE: REIGN OF VALOR on Friday, 8 March at the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar.

 

The Filipina atomweight quickly made her presence felt in ONE Championship's stacked women's atomweight division after winning her first three outings in impressive fashion.

 

Torres, however, stumbled in 2018 as she dropped decision losses to Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol at ONE: CONQUEST OF HEROES last September and former World Title challenger Mei Yamaguchi last December at ONE: DESTINY OF CHAMPIONS.

 

Now, she hopes to leave those struggles in the past.

 

"It has not been easy, especially after losing my last two bouts, but I am not giving up. I want to make sure that I get back and regain my momentum," said Torres.

 

Known for her dangerous stand-up game and effective takedowns, Torres struggled to put those to good use in her previous two bouts.

 

The Catalan Fighting System product knows that chances for redemption does not come everytime, and she vows to make good use of it against her Chinese foe who is toting a very impressive 16-2-1 record.

 

"I am motivated to show everyone the Jomary Torres of old. I know Lin Heqin is a great athlete, and I can’t wait to share the cage with her and prove that I belong there."

 

In the main event, reigning ONE Welterweight World Champion Zebaztian "The Bandit" Kadestam of Sweden will make his first world title defense against Georgiy "Knight" Kichigin
