Victor Cui, CEO and owner of One FC, believes this could be the deal to solidify MMA’s future in Asia, and he’s also working to sign more deals with promotions in and around Asia.
”Our goal is to unify Asian MMA and to build the sport that we all love dearly,” Cui said. “With today’s announcement, many of the top MMA organizations and gyms in Asia have joined hands. Given our current discussions with various parties, we will be announcing another 23 additional MMA organizations and gyms to the One FC Network in the coming days and weeks.
“These strong partnerships will help to accelerate the development of Asian fighters and the sport of MMA in the region. Asian fighters need platforms to gain invaluable experience and to showcase their skills to the world. If you are a ONE FC fighter, you will automatically be able to compete in the biggest MMA events across Asia within the One FC Network. If you are a sponsor, you will be able to leverage and target your sponsorship dollars across multiple platforms. If you are a fan, you will enjoy many more high quality MMA shows around Asia. Ultimately, as it continues to grow, the One FC Network will multiply in benefits for all parties involved.”
One FC just recently announced their next three shows kicking off in 2012, and it appears they are committed to bringing serious MMA back to Asia.
