ONE Championship’s 10th anniversary centerpiece, ONE X, can be described in one word: amazing. But, in truth, that adjective alone isn’t enough to adequately highlight just how action-packed the event will be this Saturday, March 26.
The historic three-part card is guaranteed to have fans on the edge of their seats from start to finish and features a plethora of kickboxing, Muay Thai, MMA and BJJ world champions.
In a recent interview with The Underground’s John Morgan, ONE Championship President and CEO Chatri Sityodtong summed up the promotion’s biggest show as one that will be a hot topic of discussion for many years to come.
“This is the most unique, weird and interesting world championship card ever done in history by a major global organization. And it’s one of those events, five years from now, ten years from now. , twenty years, people are going to talk about it, especially people who are in the stadium, and people who watch live with friends in their living room or their bar around the world.
The lifelong martial artist, with over 35 years of Muay Thai experience and a BJJ brown belt, went on to comment on how ONE X will be something of a paradise for combat sports fans.
“It’s one of those spectacular mega-events. Think five world title fights, one world grand prix fight, one special rules fight and literally the best of the best in mixed martial arts, kickboxing, Muay Thai and submission grappling. All in one night, all in one day rather. If you like martial arts, this is like martial arts heaven.
