ONE FC Announces Historic Asian MMA Summit, Upgrades Stadium for June 23 Show


ONE Fighting Championship today announced the formation of the ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012, a historic invitation-only gathering of the most influential figures in Eastern mixed martial arts, scheduled for June 1, 2012 through June 3, 2012 at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Leaders from Asia's most prominent MMA promotions, gyms, international sponsors, government partners, and media outlets will be attendance to plot a blueprint for future expansion and discuss the dramatic growth of Asian MMA since the inception of the ONE FC Network.

"In the last six months we have completely changed the game for the sport of mixed martial arts in Asia," stated ONE FC Owner and CEO Victor Cui.

"My vision is to create the best MMA network in Asia by choosing strategic partnerships made up of only the best promotions, gyms, sponsors, and media companies in the region. The ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 is an opportunity for us to come together to share ideas, harness the phenomenal growth of MMA in Asia and create opportunities for all."

In addition, officials confirmed a shift in date and venue for the promotion's upcoming summer show, ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors.

Due to surging ticket demands, the event has been relocated to Kuala Lumpur's 8,000-seat Stadium Negara and rescheduled for June 23, 2012. A fight card has yet to be revealed.
