ONE Championship will be busy over the final stretch of 2015, as the promotion announced plans for six events beginning September 1 in China.
That card, ONE: Dynasty of Champions, will take place from Shanghai. A few weeks later, ONE: Odyssey of Champions goes down on September 27 from Jakarta, Indonesia.
Plans are in place for an October 9 card, ONE: Tigers of Asia, from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, along with November 7 in Macau, China for ONE: Battle at the Gates and November 13 from Singapore for ONE: Pride of Lions.
The final card in 2015 will be December 11 as the promotion returns to Manila in the Philippines for ONE: Spirit of Champions.
“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,” ONE CEO Victor Cui said. “ONE has achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first major mixed martial arts organization to hold multiple events in mainland China. China is the most populous country in the world and is rich in martial arts history and 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.”
“We will also return to our favorite 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.”
Fight announcements are expected in the coming days and weeks leading up to the cards.
ONE: Kingdom of Warriors takes place this Saturday, with Bibiano Fernandes defending his bantamweight title in the main event.
