In a mere matter of months, One Fighting Championships (One FC) has grown into the number one mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion in Asia. With three events under its belt, it is hosting the first ever One FC MMA Summit on June 1-3 in an exclusive event to discuss how it managed its meteoric rise and the elements involved in its growth.

Hosted in the prestigious Marina Bay Sands, One FC has invited the who's who of Asian MMA to the event to talk about topics such as the future of Asian MMA, as well as the nuances and processes involved in the development of a championship fighting team.

Speakers include Chatri Sityodtong, owner of Evolve MMA, the most successful fight gym in Asia, as well as Anthony Lin, President and CEO of Fairtex. ROAD fighting championship head honcho Moon Hong Jung, co-founder of URCC Bubbles Aguilar, Luke Pezzuti of Australia's Cage Fighting Championship and the aforementioned Sityodtong will be discussing the future of Asian MMA.

Between the four of them, they have produced several successful shows and have launched the careers of fighters like Hector Lombard and Tiequan Zhang.

Other speakers will also discuss topics such as safety in MMA, how to engage MMA fans and the role of corporate sponsorship.

An exclusive invite-only event, this event is groundbreaking because it offers an insight into the business aspects of the professional MMA. It also demonstrates the collective unity of Asian MMA in coming together to compete against traditional American powerhouses.
