Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts (MIMMA) 2: "Grand Finals" returns to Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Oct. 25, 2014, featuring an 11-fight mixed martial arts (MMA) card headlined by former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Will "The Kill" Chope, as he makes his cagefighting return against Matt "Liquid Monkey" Pellino.

In the last of our championship fight previews before transitioning over to the main and co-main events, Agilan Chandran (4-0) will look to continue his Cinderella story after stunning the competition en route to the finals. This once-overweight youngster used MMA to get himself onto the fast-tack to fitness and the results speak for themselves.

Four straight wins with three submissions.

It's no surprise why they call him the "Alligator," having racked up all three of his finishes by way of suffocating choke. In fact, the Monarchy MMA-trained grappler even has a win by technical knockout, after putting away Abdul Matin in his lone pro fight last December.

But he'll have to fight fire with fire if he plans on torching the welterweight champ.

The undefeated Ooi Aik Tong (4-0) also knows a thing or two about the ground game, capturing gold as a judoka at the 2011 Sukan Malaysia (SUKMA) Games. But that doesn't mean the Penang phenom has to rely solely on his ground skills when push comes to shove.

Just ask Chew Chee Chan, who was stopped by way of technical knockout in last year's finals.

The 23-year-old Malaysian has yet to see a second round in his short but brilliant combat sports career. Assuming the lengthy layoff hasn't affected the Budo Academy / K-One Kickboxing product, Tong should be firing on all cylinders on fight night.

Considering the finishing ability from both challenger and champion, I would be shocked if this fight went the distance.
