Following a pair of successful Heroes Series shows last weekend, ONE Championship is set to move forward with a larger event next month.
Per ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong, ONE will head to Thailand on July 31 for No Surrender. That will be the first main roster card for the Asian MMA outfit since King of the Jungle back in February. That event was held behind closed doors at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.
BREAKING NEWS: ONE Championship is BACK! After a successful ONE Hero Series 13 and 14 in China last weekend, ONE Championship will now kick off our flagship event schedule with ONE: No Surrender on July 31 in Thailand! Stay tuned for more details!

No official announcement has been made as to what fights will grace the No Surrender card. When it halted events due to the coronavirus pandemic, ONE had key fights lined up featuring the likes of Demetrious Johnson, Aung La N Sang, Vitor Belfort, Eddie Alvarez, and more.
A pair of tentpole events in ONE Infinity and ONE Infinity 2 had been scheduled to feature some of the biggest names the company had to offer. That, however, fell by the wayside as more and more countries saw the pandemic hit their shores.
The promotion would then book a foursome of shows for April and May entitled Dreams, Hope, Strength, and Inspiration. None of those would come to pass, again due to the pandemic.
With the UFC and other promotions ramping back up, however, it’s no surprise to see ONE Championship join the action.
