In the short span of five years, mixed martial arts (MMA) in Asia has undergone more change than it has in the past 20, with ONE Championship (ONE) leading the charge and becoming a global powerhouse in the process. Headquartered in Singapore and backed by the Singapore government, ONE employs world- class production standards and industry-leading event organization to hold the largest sports entertainment events in major cities across Asia.

Today, the very best fighting talents and prospects in Asia ply their trade in the fabled ONE cage, including 10 World Champions that represent the very pinnacle of the game. This includes global superstar athletes such as Angela Lee, Bibiano Fernandes, Eduard Folayang, Ben Askren, and Brandon Vera.
In addition to giving established names a chance to shine on the largest global platform in Asian MMA, ONE has also invested in grooming local heroes in each country, giving the sport a chance to grow as a whole. Embodying traditional martial arts values including respect, humility, and discipline, these Asian heroes will serve to inspire hope in their respective communities, giving people the strength to overcome adversity in their daily lives.
