Disney Partners with One Championship

Post by TeamJohnPerretti on Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:59 am

It boasts a new Disney sponsorship, broadcasts to more than 70 countries globally, counts boxing legend Manny Pacquiao as one of its investors and promotes events around Southeast Asia, the United Arab Emirates and mainland China; and it has big plans for 2015, starting with a name change. One Fighting Championship now conducts business One Championship.


“The power of the One brand has gotten so strong that we want the focus to be on the brand as we continue to expand all over the world,” One Championship CEO Victor Cui said.


The strength of the 3-year-old company’s brand was enough to attract the attention of its newest partner: global mass media giant Disney.


“We have a fantastic relationship with Disney,” Cui said. “Blue-chip organizations all over the world realize the limitless potential that One Championship and mixed martial arts has in Asia. This is a great deal and reflects the power of One Championship in creating a spectacle that attracts the best partners.”


One Championship’s latest moves include a new broadcasting deal, which, according to Cui, will bring the Singapore-based promotion into the homes of more than 100 countries. In addition, the company has designs on holding 10 events -- the first three are already set -- in mainland China, a feat not yet accomplished by any major MMA organization.


“The expansion plan has been a huge success so far,” Cui said. “We kicked off the series in Beijing, and it was an amazing feeling to pack out the Olympic Gymnasium and watch thousands of fans cheer at the top of their lungs for their favorite athletes. This is only the beginning, and with One Championship’s continued presence in the country, mixed martial arts has the potential to become the most popular sport in the country.”

I don't mind the name change, actually.

Everything has been _FC, it's pretty damn tired.

Especially with the UFC as the standard bearer, it even makes all the other _FC's look like pretenders.

So dropping the FC is not a bad move at all, in my opinion.

There is also the potential of some vulgarity attached to the handle "Fighting" in the title, so there is that aspect to consider as well. I think that potentially in the context of Asia in particular, One Championship has a classier ring to it.

It doesn't roll off the tongue as easily for you and I, and it does seem to be missing something. But in the balance, I don't think it's bad. It isn't a perfect name though. But I guess it'll do, especially for Asia (where most people's native language is not English).

Good partnership. The name change seems fine to me.

I like the name change, for nodogoshi's reason's and Cui's reasons, and also because it shows that Cui is not afraid of change. The UFC is absolutely petrified of change. I'm surprised they ever got rid of that gladiator intro. The UFC still has "Face the Pain", still have Goldberg and Rogan as the "premium" commentators and still have the same retarded rule set.
Meanwhile, ONE has changed their ruleset, frequently switch around commentator's and have now even changed their name! This shows an organization and a man who know how to make success happen!

The Disney partnership is odd. If you look at ONE's announcement of it (instead of Sherdog's) you will see the Avenger's. So I guess we will see some kind of marketing angle with a mix of Marvel hero's and MMA. Not sure how this benefit's ONE. I feel like Asians don't know the first thing about Marvel superheros. I know my Chinese wife doesn't even recognize Superman let alone Captain America.
