Brunei lately has received negative attention for it’s implementation of Sharia’s law. But on the ground, Brunei is a very peaceful country with it’s multi-racial people living happily in a high standard of living.

Rich Franklin , the former UFC middleweight champion & current ONE Championship Vice President & ONE Warriors Series (OWS) co-founder can attest to this when he visited the oil rich country in season 2 of the series. He came to scout for talent and was pleasantly surprise that Brunei has a steadily growing martial arts community.

His mentor, Mohd Ahmed Faez Anuar fonly known as Eazy Anuar is a multiple medalist in BJJ. He debut as a pro in Ultimate Beatdown Borneo in October 2018 and collected a hard earned victory. Eazy will faced Pardeep Kumar of India
