ONE Championship’s first all-female mixed martial arts tournament is scheduled to commence in 2021.
On Friday, ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong announced on his official Facebook account that the promotion will kick off the new calendar year with the inaugural ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix.
This announcement comes after the exciting pregnancy news from ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee, which will understandably keep the divisional queen out of action for the foreseeable future.
Please join me in congratulating ONE Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee Pucci and Bruno Pucci on their wonderful news!…
The world’s largest martial arts organization held similar super tournaments in 2019 and awarded 12-kilogram silver belts to each of the three winners.
Those belts went to ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix Champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee, and ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Champion Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan.
No names are confirmed for the massive 2021 ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix, but stay tuned to ONEFC.com for more details.
