Shah's Manager and MTK MMA Middle East and South Asia CEO, Muhammad Rizvan Ali explained that Shah has lost his father recently and accepting the offer from ONE FC has been a struggle.

The king of Karachi MMA, Ovais Shah belongs to Karachi, Sindh and is currently 30 years old with holding a record of three wins and two losses (3-2-0). He won his very first fight against his counterpart from Islamabad, Uloomi Karim Shaheen back in 2012 by KO, just in the first round but when he faced him in another fight again, he had to suffer a fall by TKO (Punches), a year later. He also won against his two other counterparts, Daniyal Sikandar and Shams Rehman. Shah's last fall up-till now was against Afnan Iftikhar, also in 2013 by unanimous decision.  

While his Chinese counterpart for the upcoming fight is HexiGetu who trains out of Beijing’s China Top Team, which is renowned for being one of the massive country’s foremost fight camps. He made his professional MMA debut in 2014 but though lost the fight by three-round unanimous decision. After taking the time to correct the mistakes he made in that first bout, he quickly rallied to win his next four bouts in a Chinese promotion to build an respectable professional record. Three of those victories came by way of stunning submission, showcasing his elite grappling skills.
