Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series (OWS) takes center stage at the ONE Martial Arts Fan Fest on Saturday, 5 October.
ONE Warrior Series 8: Japan Vs. The World features 32 of the most talented, up-and-coming martial artists from around the world, and each one has the same goal – impress enough to earn a six-figure contract on the main ONE Championship roster.
After seven events in Singapore, the world’s largest martial arts organization brings its home for rising stars to Tokyo, Japan, and it comes with a twist.
Most of the match-ups feature Japanese stars against hot prospects from the rest of the planet, but only time will tell whether home advantage will help these competitors take a big step closer to the global stage.
