ONE Championship CEO and Chairman Chatri Sityodtong made a blockbuster announcement on Monday morning. Asia's largest sports media property will bring a star-studded event to the global audience on October 30 entitled ONE: Inside The Matrix.
The event will feature four World Championship bouts with a supporting card to be announced at a later date. However, those four title tilts already make the October event a stacked event that no martial arts fan will want to miss.
In the main event slot, ONE Middleweight World Champion Aung La "The Burmese Python" N Sang defends the gold against his undefeated counterpart, Reinier "The Dutch Knight" De Ridder.
ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian "The Warrior" Lee will grab the co-main event position against top-ranked Iuri Lapicus.
Those two bouts alone would stand out on any event, but ONE brings two more extraordinary championship matches to its fans.
In the featherweight division, Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen welcomes Thanh Le for a five-round affair. Le earned his shot at the champion by going 3-0 with three knockouts in ONE action.
And the women will not be left out of the party.
ONE Women's Strawweight World Champion "The Panda" Xiong Jing Nan will once again stand opposite the ONE Circle against Tiffany Teo. The two met for the inaugural crown in 2018, and after two years of work, Teo is ready to challenge for the gold once again.
The striking announcement by Sityodtong will have fans circling their calendars and setting alerts with the event right around the corner. ONE: Inside The Matrix is a can't miss event and comes your way on October 30.
