ONE Championship Heading to Qatar
ONE Championship, the global martial arts organization, is set to hold its highly anticipated event, ONE 165, in Qatar. This marks the return of numbered events for the promotion, showcasing five world title fights across various disciplines including mixed martial arts, Muay Thai, kickboxing, and submission grappling.
ONE CEO Chatri Sityodtong confirmed the news, expressing his excitement for the upcoming card. The event is expected to take place in November or December, with the exact date to be announced soon.
One of the headline bouts at ONE 165 could feature Anatoly Malykhin, the reigning light heavyweight and heavyweight world champion, as he aims to make history by capturing his third world MMA title. Malykhin is set to challenge Dutch star Reinier de Ridder for the ONE middleweight MMA world title, a belt that de Ridder previously held.
The last numbered event, ONE 164, was held in Manila in December 2022. It showcased an intense battle between Jarred Brooks and Joshua Pacio, with Brooks emerging as the new ONE strawweight MMA world champion.
In recent months, ONE Championship has focused on its Fight Night cards and the weekly ONE Friday Fights series. However, the return of numbered events signifies the organization’s commitment to delivering top-notch martial arts action to its global fanbase.
