Team Lakay’s women’s strawweight bet Jenelyn Olsim is set to return in the Circle next month after more than a year of hiatus.

Jenelyn, the sister of Jerry Olsim, both members of national muay thai team, will be facing Brazilian foe Maira Mazar in ONE: Fists of Fury III on March 19 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The development was announced through coach Mark Sangiao’s Facebook page Sunday, Feb. 21, accompanied with the official card of the event.

Olsim, who holds a 3-2 mixed martial record, is the Team Lakay fighter in the women’s strawweight division.

The 2019 Southeast Asian Games silver medalist law saw action in August 2019, where she suffered a first-round submission loss against Australian fighter Caitlin McEwen in ONE Warrior Series 7.

The Igorot warrior had a successful debut in October 2018 though, scoring a unanimous decision win in ONE Warrior Series 3 against Claudia Diaz of Spain.

The Olsim siblings and men’s strawweight rising star Lito Adiwang jumped shipped to Team Lakay from Tribal Torogi.

Olsim joined Team Lakay last year in August, making her the fourth female warrior in the squad including former atomweight No. 5 contender Gina Iniong, fellow national muay thai team member Islay Erika Bomogao, and trainer Zephania Ngaya.

Mazar, for her part, also had a 1-1 slate in the Singapore-based promotion with a recent victory over Korean foe Jung Yoon Choi in November last year.

The Brazilian fighter, representing Evolve MMA, has an overall record of 7-3.
