ONE FC has reached an exclusive partnership with Glory Sports International, which will result in a sharing of talent including fighters that could appear on the upcoming Glory/DREAM New Year’s Eve show in Japan.
ONE FC officials confirmed that with the new agreement in place, they will have access to the line-up of fighters under the Glory banner, and Glory will have the same access to fighters under contract to ONE FC.
Over the last several months, ONE FC has signed on partnership deals with numerous promotions in and around Asia, but this latest announcement only strengthens the upcoming Glory/DREAM card landing on New Year’s Eve in Japan.
According to sources, ONE FC lightweight Shinya Aoki will sign on to perform at the upcoming New Year’s Eve show against an as of yet unnamed opponent.
Also, top rated bantamweight Bibiano Fernandes is expected to fight on the New Year’s Eve Glory/DREAM card as well.
ONE FC has yet to announce news on their next card in 2013, but it appears for now they will focus on helping to promote the upcoming Glory/DREAM New Year’s Eve card in Japan.
