There will be three new title belts awarded at ONE: CENTURY in two weeks time, and now fans all across the globe can get a quick glimpse at the hardware.

This black leather belt features three silver plates each with the iconic ONE Championship logo in the center.

The alluring middle plate steals the show — it reads “World Grand Prix Champion” on the emblem, and it also has a crown at the top with seven red jewels.

In total, the belt weighs 26.4 pounds (or 12 kilograms), which makes it the heaviest belt in combat sports.



Three belts will be awarded during the promotion’s 100th event, ONE: CENTURY, which takes place at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan.

Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson faces Danny “The King” Kingad in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Championship Final and Christian “The Warrior” Lee meets Saygid “Dagi” Guseyn Arslanaliev in the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix Championship Final at ONE: CENTURY PART I on Sunday, 13 October (or for North American viewers, Saturday, 12 October).

Also, Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan squares off against Samy “AK47” Sana in the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Championship Final at ONE: CENTURY PART II on 13 October. In addition to one of these gorgeous belts, the winner of this tournament will also receive a prize of US$1 million.
