One FC's Stocks Just Went Through the Roof! MegaPromotion in the Making? [Press Release and Video Trailers]

One FC has yet to announce a first event, but they've already lit the pilot flame beneath a potentially explosive promotional future. The Singapore-based has big plans, evident in their published roster of "champion" fighters. They've already secured a broadcast deal, and generally look to be prepared to take up a dominant position in international MMA.

Along with their "champion vs. champion" theme, the following statement from the press release offers some perspective into their business model:
"ONE Fighting Championship™ currently remains in confidential discussions with many of the top Asian fighters in Asia and is expected to make additional major announcements soon. It is the goal of ONE Fighting Championship to work with all the top Asian MMA event organizations, managers, and fighters in growing the sport of mixed martial arts in Asia."
Could One FC be the next big thing since Pride? Wait, let's not jump the gun here folks. There's still another hot promotion in Hong Kong's Legend Fighting Championships, and we can't forget our fading JMMA forefathers. Asian MMA is far from dead, and One FC appears to be a vital organ in its survival.

One FC is poised to be the next movement in Asian mixed martial arts.

Meet One FC fighters two-time Martial Combat Champion, Mitch "The Dragon" Chilson and "Singapore's 1st professional MMA fighter" Radeem Rahman:
