In Tokyo, Japan on Sunday, ONE Championship ushered in the dawn of a new era with a card entitled, fittingly, A New Era.
Kicking off the next stage in their evolution, ONE Championship hosted its biggest card to date over the weekend with A New Era. The event, topped by four title fights, wowed audiences in Asia, including Japan (the event was the promotion’s first in the nation, and took place in Tokyo), as well as those who got up early in the west.
Eddie Alvarez was knocked out. Demetrious Johnson continued to be the best flyweight in the world. Angela Lee failed to claim a second title against Xiong Jing Nan. Aung La N Sang defended one of his two belts, while Shinya Aoki got the better of Eduard Folayang to win back his old lightweight title.
There was a lot to digest on Sunday, and clearly, fans ate it up. Whether ONE can continue to stack cards this way remains to be seen, but they’ve still got a few aces up their sleeve, including the pending debuts of Sage Northcutt, Yoshihiro Akiyama, and Vitor Belfort.
