For ONE Championship and Chatri Sityodtong, president and CEO of the promotion, ONE Fight Night 10 marked a significant turning point.
The self-made businessman was able to bring the developed promotion to the United States for the first time in 2011 after living there for a while after graduation and in the early years of his profession.
Top-level MMA, Muay Thai and submission competitions all took place within the same circle where ONE presented US fans with a brand new live experience from the sold out 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.
Talking about when the promotion will return to US soil, including being able to present American fans with a bill of ONE Friday Fights on the ground, immediately kicked off following the dramatic night of martial arts action that delivered fantastic fights and highlights.
After ONE’s successful Prime Video card, Chatri Sityodtong was asked if fans would be able to watch ONE Friday Fights hosted in the US.
The expert martial artist replied:
“Anything is possible. 100 percent, anything is possible right now. I think this event was an overwhelming success. Just look at the viewership metrics, look at the trends, look at the social metrics, look at the stadium, the fact that we’ve sold out weeks before. I think when we put out the ticket link, when we first announced the event, in 10 days we were 70% sold out with zero marketing.”
In addition to the monthly ONE Fight Night events, the Singapore-based organization’s ONE Friday Fights, held every Friday at the renowned Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, have been a huge success.
Chatri Sityodton will be hosting more events across the US
