ONE Championship, the largest martial arts organization in Asia, is headed back to America for a packed 2024 schedule.
The promotion has made massive strides over the last year, expanding its global reach and showcasing some of the best fighters in the world. In May 2023, ONE Championship made its historic U.S. debut with ONE Fight Night 10 in Colorado, featuring former UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, among others.
The event was a huge success, drawing a sell-out crowd and breaking records on Amazon Prime, where it was streamed exclusively. The main event saw Johnson defeat Adriano Moraes in their high-profile trilogy bout, while other stars such as Sage Northcutt and Stamp Fairtex also impressed with their performances.
Following the positive response from the U.S. fans, ONE Championship has decided to return with four more events in 2024. The promotion announced its plans earlier today, but did not reveal the exact locations or dates of the events. However, it confirmed that all of the events will be available on Amazon Prime for the U.S. audience.
ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong expressed his excitement about the announcement in a press release:
“I am thrilled to announce that ONE Championship is coming back to the U.S. with four massive events in 2024. When we made our historic U.S. debut with ONE Fight Night 10 on Prime Video, I was blown away by the support we received from our fans in the U.S.”
“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.”
ONE Championship is known for its unique blend of martial arts disciplines, including mixed martial arts, Muay Thai, kickboxing, boxing, and grappling. The promotion also features some of the most exciting and diverse fighters in the sport, such as Christian Lee, Angela Lee, Aung La N Sang, Rodtang Jitmuangnon, Eddie Alvarez, and many more.
With four events planned for 2024, ONE Championship is set to make a big impact on the U.S. market and introduce more fans to its brand of martial arts entertainment.
