Terrence ‘Unassigned’ Chan announced on his blog recently that he will compete in the Legend Fighting Championships (LFC) in Hong Kong in two weeks. The mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting series invites the top talent from the Asia-Pacific region to compete for supremacy.
The next LFC fight card takes place on March 30th. Chan will fight Muay Thai fighter Alex Lee on the under-card. Said Chan about the pending matchup, “Make no mistake, I am probably the underdog here. This is going to be a tough fight. Doing a quick search, my opponent is a veteran of over 20 ring fights in Muay Thai, boxing and karate.” He continued, “So I am fighting someone bigger, stronger, taller (by about 5 inches!), more experienced and who, being HK born-and-bred, will likely be the crowd favourite too. Do I care? Not in the least. I’m full of confidence and being the on-paper underdog is only going to make this win taste sweeter.”
Chan is known to the poker world for his track record in limit hold’em tournaments. In 2009, he won not one but two Spring Championships of Online Poker (SCOOP) titles in six-max limit hold’em tournaments in one night. Later that year, he won a WCOOP bracelet in a tournament of the same format. The Canadian also has over $900,000 in live tournament winnings according to the Hendon Mob database.
Chan has been training in Muay Thai boxing and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu fighting for nearly a decade. His debut as a professional MMA fighter will be aired live on YouTube.
