ONE Championship signs Bi Nguyen

Asian mixed martial arts organization ONE Championship confirmed the addition of Vietnamese-American Bi Nguyen (4-3-0) to its atomweight division.

The “KillHer Bee,” 29, previously competed on the reality show Survivor and most recently in the King of the Cage (KOTC) promotion. She trains with Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico and will make her debut in 2019.

“I am pleased to announce that Bi Nguyen has decided to sign with ONE Championship,” CEO Chatri Sityodtong said in a press release. “I foresee her as the next superstar in mixed martial arts who will represent Vietnam on the global stage because of her exceptional talent and impressive skill set. We will be seeing her inside the ONE Championship cage very soon. Along with ONE Featherweight World Champion Martin Nguyen, Bi Nguyen will be an essential part of ONE Championship’s efforts to bring the organization closer to the Vietnamese people. In addition, we would like to showcase both of them as the country’s biggest international martial arts heroes, as we plan to host our first event in Vietnam in September of 2019.”

Nguyen’s last fight was a second round submission loss to Jayme Hinshaw at KOTC – Perennial in July.
