- Updated: July 17, 2015
July 16, 2015: ONE Championship has announced six more events from September in Shanghai, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Singapore and Manila, yet says there’s more to come in 2015.
Victor Cui, CEO of ONE Championship, is especially excited about a return to mainland China, in Shanghai on September 1, and a visit to Macau, on November 7.
“Early in 2015, we knew that this year would be another amazing year with exciting growth for ONE Championship as we continue to expand at an incredibly rapid pace, bringing our signature brand of world-class MMA action into more cities in Asia,” Cui said.
“ONE has achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first major mixed martial arts organisation to hold multiple events in mainland China. China is the most populous country in the world and is rich in martial arts history. Now, fans in Shanghai and Macau can look forward to witnessing world-class mixed martial arts that has already captivated fans from all around the world.”
Headquartered in Singapore, ONE will also stage events in four Southeast Asian hubs at the end of the year, taking in Jakarta (September 27), Kuala Lumpur (October 9), Singapore (November 13) and Manila (December 11).
Cui said: “We will also return to our favourite cities in Asia – Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Manila – with even greater shows and blockbuster fight cards that will ignite stadiums and get fans screaming for more.”
