UFC®, the world’s premier mixed martial arts organisation, and AirAsia have announced the opening of the application process for this year’s AirAsia UFC® Training Scholarship.

Now in its second year, the training scholarship will provide an up-and-coming MMA athlete from Asia Pacific with the opportunity of a lifetime – an all-expenses-paid training program at the UFC Performance Institute® in Shanghai, China, the largest MMA training and development facility in the world.

The tailored four-week training program will give the chosen athlete the opportunity to train with other world-class MMA athletes under the tutelage of the UFC Performance Institute team, led by UFC Hall-of-Famer Forrest Griffin.

“Our primary objective for the UFC Performance Institute Shanghai is to accelerate the development of Mixed Martial Arts in the region by providing a world-class facility, best-in-class training, and an innovative approach to sports science,” said UFC Senior Vice President APAC, Kevin Chang.

“We are delighted to work with AirAsia to offer this annual program, and we are confident it will increase the pool of talent in the region who are ready to sharpen their skills in the world’s most advanced MMA training facility.”

Indonesian strawweight Linda Darrow was awarded the scholarship in 2018 and trained at UFC’s Performance Institute® in Las Vegas
