The most exciting MMA organization just got more exciting

Postby PainDog » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:34 pm

No organization has as many fast paced fights with consistent finishes as ONE Championship.

Now ONE is going to start adding kickboxing to their shows.

The last ONE card featured Sam A Gaiyanghado vs. Joseph Lasiri in a muay thai fight.

They're launching into kickboxing with some great talent like Joe Nattawut, Regian Ersel, and Giorgio Petrosyan...and undoubtedly some additional Dutch and Moroccan fighters :hand1:

Fuck yeah that is awesome. Hybrid shows in ring sound perfect. Fuck the cage

Getting Petrosyain and Jo Nattawut is crazy. Two of the best strikers in the world. I actually will go with Smokin Jo on the upset in that one.

Can't wait

Smart move from ONE
Officially 6-2 in sig bets. *pats back* 5 time A league champion. :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold:
