The most electrifying sports event in Malaysia returns for the 3rd installment this 10th October 2015 at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil, featuring 13-bouts of home grown talents battling it out for the gold, the Tune Talk’s Malaysian Invasion MMA Championship title belt. A property of Tune Talk, Malaysian Invasion Season 3 Grand Finals is the conclusion of a year-long national Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) tournament with the Women’s Pride and Foreign Pride as the newly added division to the existing seven (7) weight classes.
Malaysian Invasion MMA (MIMMA) was founded by Tune Talk CEO Jason Lo and Malaysia’s Sports and Youth Minister YB Khairy Jamaluddin back in 2013 following their success in MyTeam football reality TV show. Jason was a fan of MMA but realized there wasn’t a talent development platform in order to have a proper athlete growth platform, thus, MIMMA Season 1 was launched in 2013. In season 2, everyone was blown away by the broken records and the benchmark set, skyrocketing the quality of the fighters and the fight events to an unprecedented level. Now as MIMMA heads to the Grand Finals for its 3rd season, history will be written all over again, with a breed of quintessential amateur MMA Champions, with some already proceeded to compete professionally bringing pride back to Malaysia.
The MIMMA Championship Bouts features a total of nine (9) electrifying matches:
Felicia Yunus VS Joanna Yap
Darren Low (C) VS Niker Tan
Seah Zhang Yu (C) VS Dhiaaul Amal

Out of the seven defending champions from Season 2, three will be defending their titles. Darren Low, Seah Zhang Yu and policeman Muhammad Hasrul has set high standards to follow when they were crowned the title of MIMMA Champion back in October 2014, which secured then as the best all-Malaysian fighters in their respective weight divisions. The other defending champions have since vacated their spot in MIMMA for a Professional MMA career, thus fulfilling the main goal of MIMMA’s talent development platform.
Former Malaysian Invasion Heavyweight Champion Adrian Tham will also make a comeback in the East vs West showdown representing the East Malaysia against KL-ite Theeban G. representing the Peninsular.
