Singapore-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion ONE Championship has announced four US events following on from its successful debut in the country.
ONE is seeking to carry the momentum of the US debut show – ONE Fight Night 10 – into the following year as the promotion will continue to broadcast its North American shows on Prime Video with cities, venues and tickets to be announced at a later date.
ONE Fight Night 10 took place on 3 May 2023 and featured ONE Flyweight World Champion Demetrious Johnson successfully defending his title against Adriano Moraes in the main event at the 1st Bank Centre in Colorado.
The event also saw the return of Sage Northcutt and the US debuts of Thai fighters Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Stamp Fairtex, amongst others.
ONE expressed its delight at how its first venture into the US went, with tickets being sold out as it became the most watched ONE event on Prime Video.
The MMA promotion also set a new peak on Google trends for ONE Championship in the US market, as well as trending number one on Twitter in North America.
Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, commented on the new US shows: “I am thrilled to announce that ONE Championship is coming back to the US with four massive events in 2024.
“When we made our historic US debut with ONE Fight Night 10 on Prime Video, I was blown away by the support we received from our fans in the US ONE is home to the greatest martial artists in the world, and I’m excited to once again showcase our World Champions on American soil.
“To our fans that haven’t seen a live ONE event, I promise you an experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen.”
