ONE FC plans to hold an amateur fight series that will allow the promotion to find the top prospects out of the Asian market and produce around nine different events per year.
“It’s allows us to look at and sign top talent before they turn pro,” said ONE FC CEO Victor Cui on MMA Junkie Radio.
The winner of the series can eventually find themselves in title fights that will crown national champions, instead of one general titleholder for a company.
“These guys can eventually move up for contention and the belt,” said Cui.
ONE FC: Return of the Warriors streams live on the promotion’s official website. That event takes place this Saturday, February 2, from the Putra Indoor Stadium. ESPN Star Sports will air the card internationally. A four person featherweight tournament is set for the show.
