ONE Championship talks about plan on returning to the cage

As the world slowly recovers from COVID-19, many people are still taking voluntary precautions, including ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Sityodtong said that ONE is, "not in a rush to come back just for the sake of coming back."

"We want to come back to an environment where we are sure that we can do it safely for all parties involved," he added.

ONE is based in Singapore, and has faced additional difficulties in navigating international lock downs and regulations.

Although fans of ONE Championship may be disappointed that they have to wait longer than their UFC-following peers for more fights (the UFC resumed holding major events with UFC 249 in Jacksonville, FL, on May 9, 2020), they can be assured that this is not the end of ONE.

"My team and I have been working on (returning) nonstop, and we feel pretty good about it," Sityodtong said.

Selected below are three great Donnie Yen films that aren’t Ip Man.
