Once called "the most savage Indian fighter in all of Malaysia" after his performance in Balls to BrawlPrabu Somanaidu (4-1) lived up to the hype by beating the brakes off Muhd Aiman in last year's Grand Finals to win the MIMMA bantamweight title.

Not bad for just two years in the fight game.

As a former state runner, the quickly-developing MMA fighter known as "Superman" left behind a lucrative career as a technical engineer to pursue his dream in combat sports, even making an appearance at the storied IMMAFF tournament last June in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Here is a closer look at Somanaidu's evolution as a fighter.


But he's going to have his work cut out for him against Jenarten Radhakrishnan (5-0), who knows a thing or two about the brights lights and big cities of international MMA, thanks to his Wuji camp training under ONE Fighting Championship standout Peter Davis.

In addition, Jenarten has finished four of his five fights in violent fashion. After his stunning technical knockout victory over Effendey Kalai in the tournament semifinals, the Selangor native obliterated striking specialist Ben Lee to win his spot as 135-pound No. 1 contender.

Don't blink!
