Alongside the Ultimate Fighting Championship, ONE Championship is a true needle mover in the combat sports market. ONE Championship takes great satisfaction in being the largest martial arts company in the world. Consequently, when ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong talks about a prospective ONE vs. UFC mega event, it makes complete and utter logic to match the two dominant organizations in the field of martial arts against one another.
In point of fact, Sityodtong has been advocating for a long time for such an event to take place, and he predicts that it will undoubtedly wind up being the most significant event in the annals of the history of combat sports.
The Thai-Japanese entrepreneur made a recent guest appearance on Just Scrap Radio, where he stated that he would not hesitate to work with the UFC to co-promote an event with a world champion competing against another world champion.
According to Sityodtong:
“You know, if I had the chance to do a co-promotion with the UFC, I would do it in a heartbeat. A champion fighting another champion is something that has always been on my bucket list.
Have a look at the complete interview right here:
Who will win: Anatoly Malykhin or Jon Jones? Who will win between Israel Adesanya and Reinier de Ridder? Who will win, Christian Lee or Islam Makhachev? Put us in the list. Those are some seriously heavy hitters.
