This breaking news just got in last night and it's confirmed, mofos! ONE FC will be expanding to China with a deal that'll allow the MMA organisation to have 10 events a year at 10 different cities across the big country. And apparently, it will start with 4 events this year itself! Check out the official press release:

20 June 2014 – SINGAPORE: ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC), Asia’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organization with a 90% market share, announced today that they have agreed to a blockbuster deal with world-renowned event promoter, AMC Live Group. This historical partnership marks the entry of ONE FC into China, the world's most populous country. ONE FC will be holding an unprecedented ten events a year in ten different cities across the country, starting with 4 events this year.



AMC Live Group is the premier event promotion in Asia. Since its establishment in 2009, AMC Live Group has expanded its business to encompass all components of live entertainment, from large-scale variety shows, fan clubs, signings, artist management and endorsements, corporate image planning and marketing, public relations, event planning and execution, choreography, ticketing and equipment leasing. The organization has successfully organized concerts and tours for international superstars such as Elton John, Faye Wong, Eason Chan, Jay Chou and Stefanie Sun.

ONE FC CEO Victor Cui stated, “This monumental agreement will redefine the sport of mixed martial arts forever! ONE Fighting Championship™ will become the first world class mixed martial arts organization ever to hold an event in mainland China. China is the birthplace of martial arts like Sanda, Wushu, and Kung Fu and there is a rich martial arts tradition. ONE FC will be available to over one billion people in China alone and will bring adrenaline-pumping mixed martial arts action to ten different cities across the country a year. The landscape of mixed martial arts will be changed forever as China welcomes ONE FC!”

AMC Live Group CEO, Adrian Leong, stated, “AMC Live Group is the organization of choice for live entertainment events across Asia.

We are very excited at the potential of mixed martial arts in China and believe that it will be a huge success given the track record of ONE FC.”

The next event ONE FC 18: War of Dragons, however, will be in Taiwan happening this coming 11th July, featuring a fight that I wouldn't want to miss - the return of Eric Kelly versus the impressive Rob Lisita. Can't wait for that.
