ONE FC signs former Legend FC champ Ji Xian

ONE Fighting Championship continues to bolster its fight roster with the latest addition of one of China’s hottest prospects.

Ji Xian (11-2), one of the most highly regarded Bantamweights in the region, will next ply his trade in the ONE FC cage.

Xian, 26, who most recently fought under the now defunct Legend FC banner in April 2013, has officially signed with ONE FC. CEO Victor Cui announced the coup on Twitter, but didn’t confirm if there’s a fight set for the Chinese fighter.

Xian fights out of Xian Sports University, one of China leading MMA camps that’s also home to the likes of the UFC’s Jumabieke Tuerxun, and RUFF vets Wang Guan & Zhang Mei Xuan among others.

The 26-year-old has competed primarily in China, where he’s made appearances in RUFF along with Legend FC. He garnered the 135-lbs strap during his 4-1 run with the latter promotion.

While all victories of Xian’s eleven victories have come via submission, his only two setbacks have come at the hands of former Legend FC Featherweight champ Yusuke Kawanago, and Japanese MMA vet Koji Yoshida.

Xian has reportedly inked a six-fight deal and is expected to make his promotional debut later this year.
