It has been a great year for ONE Championship and back in December’16, they were named Asia’s MMA Leading promotions by Forbes. Under the strong leadership of their Chairman, Chatri Sityodtong, (image above) and their CEO, Victor Cui.
They held 14 successful and record breaking events across China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. Including crowning the youngest female world MMA champion history, Angela Lee.
It is amazing to see what the team has achieved in just 5 years since their incorporation. Even Heliconia Capital Management, a wholly owned subsidiary of Temasek, has taken noticed and invested in them in July 2016.
Looking forward to their first 2017 event in Jakarta at the Jakarta Convention Centre.
Stay tuned as we will be covering that event!
