In the wake of ONE Championship’s 10th anniversary show, ONE X, the promotion appears to have made a change to its naming scheme.

ONE’s next card had been previously announced as ONE: Reloaded, following the organization’s tradition of giving each event its own proper name. However, in a press release Thursday, announcing the full card for the April 22, 2022 event in Singapore, the event is titled simply ONE: Eersel vs. Sadikovic, with all references to the Reloaded name dropped.

The promotion’s official website has also been updated accordingly.

Could we be at an end of an era in terms of ONE Championship events? Rival UFC moved away from named events a decade ago, with UFC 125: Resolution in 2012 being the final card given its own moniker, outside of a subsequent “Fight for the Troops” event that doesn’t really count.

In the meantime, the focus now falls on the fighters, with lightweight kickboxing world champion Regian Eersel putting his title on the line against Arian Sadikovic.

Jackie Buntan and Smilla Sundell compete for the vacant women’s strawweight Muay Thai title, while on the MMA side, Jarred “The Monkey God” Brooks returns, looking to notch his sixth straight win (discounting a No Contest at RIZIN 18) against “Little Giant” Bokang Masunyane. In a previously reported contest, meanwhile, Oumar Kane, better known as “Reug Reug,” faces off with BJJ ace Marcus Buchecha.

The full card announced on Thursday breaks down as follows:
