Reads in miniature like Victor's speech I filmed at the One Asia-MMA Summit in its near-entirety; for those who missed that piece or who weren't aware of the summit, here:

Big year ahead for One FC!

Any idea on where the event after One FC 7 Kuala Lumpur is gonna be held?

BrunoMcGyver - Any idea on where the event after One FC 7 Kuala Lumpur is gonna be held?

Heard some rumors that it's either Manila or Singapore Phone Post

considering this year is already planned out, 2014 almost is, there'll be 30+ events in these years, they just agreed a partnership with GLORY, DREAM has revived, and One FC keep signing TV deals and whatnot, I doubt that they're somehow downsizing anytime soon.

They're ambitious. Rightly so; they're top of the Asian market

john joe - from what i hear, ONE FC has good ticket sales but the online PPV has been almost nonexistent and so there has been a rethink and a policy change towards local regional markets rather than a worldwide audience - why spend tens of thousands of dollars bringing in Babulu, Arlovski etc when you can sell just as many tickets filling the card with local guys?

Out in Malaysia, guys like Peter Davis and Adam Kayoom are probably bigger names than Arlovksi or Baroni or Babalu and if the PPV numbers aren't good then why bother bringing in expensive overseas fighters when you can fill a stadium with locals?

So now you will notice that the expensive internationals like Arlovski, Silva, Manhoef etc are going to be absent from the cards and One FC will devolve into a regional show albeit maybe one that brings in rising overseas talent. Because fights like Arlovski vs Sylvia IV ended up being basically a free treat for US fans who were interested while the local fans werent really that bothered

theres some shit-hot talent in One FC still, like Zorobabel Moreira, but you've got to think that eventually they are gonna move stateside if their records get good enough

Zorobabel Moreira is a badass. Bad chin but a murderous offense standing and ground. Phone Post

True regarding local fighters and whatnot, but as long as the events are still exciting and new talent comes through a la Zoro, One FC will keep growing in Asia and that's all that matters for now.



Beyond that, they're ambitious. Wouldn't rule them out. And while we're seeing fights like Ole/Folayang, I couldn't care less if the Arlovski's and Sylvia's and whoever else rock up in Singapre to throw down. We're still getting great fights from these "local boys"



Andrew Leone vs. Roy Docyogen NEEDS to happen though. Unshackle the Leone; the flyweight who beat the current bantamweight champ in 20 seconds and went 1-1 with Road FC champ / UFC bantamweight Kang

Zuffa is focusing on Japan, Korea, China, India...  look at their GDP's and compare them to One FC's target markets of malaysia, philippines, indonesia.

not even close.  they are smart to be sticking to markets that arent worth much for zuffa to currently focus on. 

One FC is the "strikeforce" of asia.

In the Philippines the mma league is called the URCC or the Universal Reality Combat Championship we have been around for ten years already. We ocassionaly lend our fighters to ONE FC as our fighters are some of their biggest stars.

aye, unshackle the Ole as well. Ole and Leone NEED 1 EFF SEE FYTZ

I just wish there was a possibility Arnold Lepont could be made to face non-One FC welcome JJ Ambrose, or even Mr Elbe. That would be GOOD for the sport

Still, I'm impressed with the quality of One FC events in 2012, I don't see this year being any different.

I just wanna see sum asians throwin fists Phone Post
