Ting (11-3-0) will enter the fight on the strength of a three fight winning streak, defeating Honorio Banario, Eric Kelly and Rob Lisita.

Shalorus went 0-3-0 during his tenure in the UFC, which saw him drop fights to the trio of Jim Miller, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Rafael Dos Anjos. Shalorus is a former Supreme Warrior Challenge Lightweight Champion, he defeated Justin Miller in 2009 to win the gold.
One Championships 52 takes place on Friday, February 10 from the Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with Ev Ting and Kamal Shalorus headlining.
