ONE Championship has invited friends in the media, professional mixed martial artists and various other people in the MMA industry to a press conference to announce ONE: Odyssey of Champions, at the InterContinental Hotel MidPlaza in Jakarta on Wednesday.
The fight card will be held at Jakarta's Istora Senayan on Sept. 27 and will be headlined by the much-anticipated battle between Ben “Funky” Askren of the United States and Luis “Sapo” Santos of Brazil.
ONE Championship has held successful shows in Jakarta before, with the country playing a big role in the promotion’s phenomenal growth.
Featured at Wednesday's press conference is, of course, ONE Championship CEO Victor Cui, as well as leaders from various partners.
ONE Championship is ready to make some noise this year with a plethora of planned shows in different cities across Asia.
