With only a day until ONE FC returns, CEO Victor Cui is already planning for a huge year. Their eighth show has been booked for April 5 and features the lightweight championship as the headliner.
“Our 2013 schedule is virtually complete, there are going to be 12 events and two more summits so at the moment my focus is on 2014 when there will be 24 ONE FC shows and we are three quarters of the way towards getting those booked,” said Cui to MMA Mania. “We have events booked in almost every major city in Asia and we’ll be announcing the dates very soon.”
Cui has also signed several TV network deals and is looking to expand with even more this year. Live shows will be available in Canada as well as shows from France to Russia. Cui continued that commentators would be used throughout Europe and Asia.
Tomorrow, ONE FC 7: Return of Warriors airs from the Putra Indoor Arena in Malaysia. The main card streams at onefc.livesport.tv for $9.99 at 6 a.m. ET. The preliminary card will air for free.
