ONE Fighting Championship has made further inroads to producing regular events in the Philippines by nailing down a location. The event industry’s premier facility, the Mall Of Asia Arena, will now become home to future ONE FC shows in Manila.
Two of ONE FC’s hottest cards in 2013 took place in the MOA Arena to an audience of fans ripe for MMA action. Filipino fans, both knowledgable and fervent about MMA, packed both events. A permanent home ensures that both fighters and fight fans in the Philippines will continue to have opportunities to enjoy the sport in years to come.
