Evolve MMA Signs Another Singaporean Fighter to Its Stable of
World Champions
-Youngest Member of the Prestigious Evolve Fight Team-

Singapore, 11 February 2014 – Evolve Mixed Martial Arts, Asia's top martial arts organization, announces today the signing of another Singaporean, Benedict Ang, to its impressive stable of World Champions.

Benedict Ang, now the youngest member of the prestigious Evolve Fight Team at 17 years of age, started training at the world class academy of Evolve MMA in December 2011. In just over two years, Benedict has developed into a very well rounded mixed martial artist. He has achieved the status of intermediate level three in Muay Thai and has been awarded a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under the tutelage of the academy’s numerous Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champions such as Namsaknoi Yudthagarngamtorn, Orono Wor Petchpun, Leandro Issa and Bruno Pucci.

In 2013, Benedict was invited to join the Evolve Competition Team, the amateur fight team of Evolve MMA.  He then began his rigorous training with ONE Fighting Championship superstars Eddie Ng, Jake Butler and ONE FC Lightweight World Champion Shinya Aoki. Benedict made his MMA debut in the same year, and he currently stands undefeated with a record of three wins and no losses.

“I am extremely proud to announce this latest Singaporean addition to the Evolve Fight Team. Benedict has shown absolute dedication and a tremendous amount of talent at a young age.  I’m confident that with the support of our World Champions he will continue to grow into an excellent mixed martial artist and will undoubtedly be a top local fighter,” said Chatri Sityodtong, Founder of Evolve MMA.

“The local mixed martial arts scene has come a long way, and it has always been one of my missions at Evolve MMA to groom Singaporean World Champions. We already have two local fighters, Radeem Rahman and Nicole Chua, who have achieved great success at ONE Fighting Championship, and I am confident that with Benedict’s talent, dedication, heart and mental strength he will also accomplish the same triumph,” added Chatri.

Benedict expressed, “I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Asia’s top and most decorated professional fight team. It has always been my dream to compete professionally, and I cannot express my gratitude enough to Chatri Sityodtong, Heath Sims and the rest of the World Champions at Evolve MMA. This is the opportunity of a lifetime, and I cannot wait to make my mark in the cage.”

Benedict is currently studying at Temasek Polytechnic pursuing a diploma in Digital Forensic.
