If you’re a world champion martial artist and you want to let it all hang in the cage, then I want you. If you are the baddest fighter in your country in Asia, then I want you. If you think you’re the best MMA fighter, then I want you. One Fighting Championship is about the best Asian fighters competing on the biggest Asian stage.”

However, One Fighting Championship will not use the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. Moreover, expect the promotion to hit Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Macau and many others in its next events.
