ONE FC 7 to host featherweight title bout, four-man flyweight tourney on Feb. 2
ONE Fighting Championships has scheduled its next event for Feb. 2 at Putra Indoor Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
ONE FC CEO Victor Cui told MMAjunkie.com (MMAjunkie.com
) the show features a first-ever featherweight-title bout and the first leg of a four-man flyweight grand prix. The fighters haven't been announced.
The event, which takes place the same day as UFC 156, streams live in the U.S. on the promotion's website, onefc.com, and internationally on ESPN Star Sports, which is available to 500 million people in 28 countries.
Putra Indoor Arena will be configured to hold 15,000 fans, Cui said. A press conference is planned for next month to announce the event as well as a partnership with a major sponsor, which he declined to name.
Preliminary-card bouts stream for free on the promotion's website while main-card bouts are available for $9.99.
Matchups for the card are nearly set, Cui said, but have not been made official.
