In the world of mixed martial arts, ONE Championship and UFC are two of the biggest names.
So it’s no surprise that there has reportedly been “sustained interest” from fans of the sport to have the two heavyweight promotions clash in a mega event.
On the side of ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong, he doesn’t plan to shy away from the challenge.
A much younger organization than their Western counterparts, the Singapore-based promotion does not plan on backing down from the challenge.
ONE Championship lit the fire last week with a tweet from the CEO, where he reiterated his openness to such an event.
This was also his statement last year when he talked to media and said, “UFC vs ONE Championship I think would be phenomenal. I think the whole entire world would watch it.”
A number of former UFC athletes who saw success in the Western franchise struggled when they came to ONE Championship.
