ONE Championship is taking no risks for one of the biggest events in company history.
The Singapore-based promotion has postponed its landmark “ONE: X” 10th anniversary event, originally scheduled for Dec. 5, due to rising COVID-19 cases in the island city-state.
ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong announced the news in a statement on Wednesday (via Facebook):
BREAKING NEWS: Due to the record high viral outbreak in Singapore, ONE: X will now take place early next year instead of December 5. The Singapore Government continues to do an extraordinary job in managing the situation for the country. I am full of gratitude and appreciation for its incredible leadership and excellence. Please note that our regular shows for November and December are expected to continue as per usual. It is a tricky time for everyone in Singapore, but I am confident that we will all get through these times by working together with compassion, resilience, creativity, and patience. Majulah Singapura!
ONE: X is not only a celebration of our tenth year anniversary, but it is also going to be the biggest event in our history. DJ vs Rodtang, Fernandes vs Lineker, and Le vs Tonon are just a few of the fights on this mega card. I cannot wait to unveil what else we have in store for fans with ONE: X. Stay tuned for more exciting news!
Prior to the announcement, the latest lineup for “ONE: X” included:
Demetrious Johnson vs. Rodtang Jitmuangnon – special rules bout
Champ Bibiano Fernandes vs. John Lineker – for bantamweight title
Champ Thanh Le vs. Garry Tonon – for featherweight title
