With 24 events being the goal for 2014, ONE FC CEO Victor Cui wants one of those destinations to be Japan.
“We’ve been looking at it very closely,” said Cui to MMA Fighting. “We’ve had several discussions with fighters and sponsors that want to be in that market. I’m very sure we’ll be there in 2014. We’ve got several things booked already. It’s just a matter of finding the right timing.”
Cui called the Saitama Super Arena as the “ideal place” for a show in Japan.
ONE FC was founded in 2011 and will hold their 10th show next month. They have a 10 year TV deal with ESPN Star Sports.
Their upcoming show sees the inaugural flyweight champion crowned in Shinichi Kojima vs. Andrew Leone. It’s September 13 from the Istora Senayan in Indonesia. Prelims stream online for free.
