There have been three Road to ONE events in Japan so far. All were promoted by Pancrase and Shooto and featured promising athletes looking to win a seat in the main event, as well as established stars, such as fighter Shinya Aoki.
The 'cards to' Road to ONE 1rd ',' Road to ONE 2rd 'and' Road to ONE 3rd 'were all made in Tokyo, with local promotions Pancrase and Shooto sending their representatives to all shows.

Nobuyuki Sakakibara shows interest for Anderson Silva to fight MMA in Japan

After being rejected by numerous promotions, including ONE Championship, PFL, Bellator and BKFC, Anderson Silva - now a 'free agent' - will be able to continue in active duty, not least because the former middleweight champion (84 kg) of the UFC hasn't nailed his retirement yet and left open the chance to do some more MMA fights.
This weekend, it was reported by journalists of the size of Drake Riggs (MyMMANews) and Jake Nichols (TheBodyLockMMA), among others from media specializing in mixed martial arts around the world, that Rizin FF founder and president, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, expressed interest in helping Anderson Silva “fulfill his wishes” and “start the final chapter of his career in Japan”.
- “I have great memories of Anderson Silva at the time of Pride and in my personal opinion I think his career has skyrocketed in Japan. I heard that Japan also has a special place in his heart. I really feel like I would like to help him fulfill his wishes out of respect for what he has achieved and what he has done for our sport. I haven't talked to him yet, but I would like to know if we can find something that makes sense for him to start his final chapter in Japan. ”- declared Sakakibara, in an interview with the MyMMANews website.
On the other hand, commentators from Matthew Wells, Ant Walker and Patrick Auger are of the opinion that although Sakakibara has expressed an interest in helping Anderson finish his career in Japan, this does not necessarily mean that Silva will fight at Rizin, although they are unanimous in saying who would like to see you fight in the 'land of the Rising Sun'.
During his peak, Silva was widely considered to be the best pound for pound fighter on the planet. He recorded 16 consecutive UFC victories and held the organization's middleweight title for seven years.
But with just one win in his last nine fights, Silva's stock has dropped. He comes from defeat to Urijah Hall at UFC Vegas 12 in what was the last fight of his contract.
Silva fought five times for Pride FC, winning three of those fights. He has also appeared twice on Shooto's cards, but has not fought in Japan since 2004.
But what about you, dear reader? Would you like to see Anderson Silva end his career fighting in Japan? Do you believe this will happen? Let us know your opinion in the comments below.

UFC events may be suspended again in Nevada due to coronavirus

On November 10, 2020, Governor Steve Sisolak (D) asked citizens of the state of Nevada (USA) to stay at home for two weeks or as long as possible to slow the spread of the new coronavirus (Sars-Cov- 2), responsible for Covid-19 disease, in the midst of another outbreak.
But, after more than 15 days, the state has registered new 'records' in its moving average of new cases reported in a single day, in addition to the increase in hospitalizations.
Since then, there have been new 'rumors' in the US that Governor Steve Sisolak could ask for the cancellation of MMA and boxing events in his state, even though they are being held indoors (that is,' without the presence of public '), as part of the' new measures' to contain the spread of Covid-19.
However, the governor did not detail when he would make such an announcement or what sectors would be most affected by the new restrictions, limiting himself to saying that his government "is exploring all the mitigation options available to control the new outbreak".
Sisolak also said that his team is gathering information and working with state health and emergency management officials and economic leaders in developing these measures and that the public "should expect to hear about new decisions in the coming days".
But, in answering other questions about the possibility of keeping casinos open (where the millionaire MMA and boxing fights in the USA have traditionally been promoted), the governor said:
- "I hope we don't have to face another economic downtime like in the spring, and keep some kind of open economy while citizens do their part to reduce the possibility of Covid-19 spreading in our state," said Sisolak, directly from his residence in Carson City.
The possibility of introducing new restrictions in the state of Nevada was reported by journalist Colton Lochhead of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
A new closure of concerts in Nevada would affect even the UFC and Top Rank, leaders in the MMA and boxing segments, respectively.
At the UFC 255 'post-fight' press conference, Dana White was asked by sports journalist Kevin Iole about the possibility of the governor canceling upcoming UFC programs, now that the state of the coronavirus pandemic is getting worse in the state.
- “I never heard anything even remotely close to that. See what we've done. That would be crazy. ”- White replied.
Although the obvious solution to a possible suspension of sporting events in Nevada is to transfer the shows to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, (in the Middle East), where several UFC 'cards' have already been made that year, there are also rumors of that the same restrictions are being considered by local authorities, again due to the pandemic.
So now, as it has been for most of this year, uncertainty reigns.

Paige VanZant does not renew with UFC and signs to fight in boxing event 'without gloves'

After finishing his contract with the UFC, Paige VanZant - 26-year-old MMA star - opted to sign with the biggest promotion of 'no gloves' boxing or 'Bare Knuckle Boxing' in the world today.

The news was disseminated firsthand by the renowned journalist Ariel Helwani, from "ESPN americana" and confirmed by specialized sites such as "MMA Fighting" and "Fight Bananas", among others.

After suffering a loss to Brazilian Amanda Ribas at 'Ilha da Luta' (UFC 251, at Ilha Yas), last month, the American concluded her contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and even turned down an offer from Bellator MMA - promotion owned by ViacomCBS - preferring to sign with the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC), 'no gloves' boxing show, whose president is David Feldman.

What weighed on Paige's decision, according to what has been reported by the American media, is that the negotiation exceeded the mark of US $ 1 million dollars, in addition to other related gains. The amount is much higher than what VanZant won in the UFC.

The millionaire contract with the Philadelphia-based promotion provides for the American to make her boxing debut 'without gloves' later this year, probably in November.

Paige's MMA cartel consists of eight wins and five losses, while inside the UFC it was five wins and four losses. She competed in the octagon as straw weight and flyweight.

It is worth remembering that the current champion of the female category of BKFC, Bec Rawlings, already lost to VanZant by knockout in the UFC, still in 2016.

Interestingly, VanZant has become a celebrity in the USA for some time now and she will be able to take the sport of “Bare Knuckle Boxing” to a new level.
Anyone who can watch the dance reality show “Dancing With the Stars” - equivalent here in Brazil to the 'dancing of the famous' - knows of its power with the public in the land of Uncle Sam.

Another proof of his popularity is the number of his followers on Instagram (2.7 million), more than Gina Carano (1.1 million), a film actress and former MMA fighter, with much prestige in that country.
By the way, Paige always commented that he made more money with his Instagram posts than fighting in the UFC (and it sure must be true) ...

Titãs Fight Communities with MMA, Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu fights in Florianópolis - SC

Little by little, we came back to see some movement in the Brazilian MMA scene. Inspired by the MMA events currently held in Japan and in some other countries on the Asian continent - besides the USA, of course - promoters, athletes and coaches promise for August 9th, in Florianópolis-SC, the Titãs Fight Communities, with fights MMA, Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu (with and without the gi).

Athletes from the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná and São Paulo have already confirmed their presence on the 'card'. There is still the possibility of including two fighters from Cuba.

The event will take place in the Chico Mendes community, lacking in this type of entertainment and the organizers' intention is to promote sport as a form of social inclusion, in addition to revealing new names for world MMA, like the international fighter Mauricio “Bad Boy”, who still maintains the CT Guetto Diamond Chico Mendes Fight Project. In addition, prosecutors will also collect food for those in need, because while many people are gradually returning to their activities and others remain safe at home, there are thousands on the peripheries who have lost their jobs and are unassisted in many ways.

Titãs Fight Communities - which has the support of community president Chico Mendes Edson Jesus - will be the 1st event to return to Florianópolis after the total stoppage of the city due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it will be done responsibly.

The event can be held with the public and its creators will place the chairs at a safe distance, as part of the necessary safety measures, in addition to requiring the use of masks by sports fans and making alcohol at the box office available to everyone.

According to organizer Thiago Lapolli Fiorenzano da Silveira, also known as “Tubarão”, Titãs Fight Communities has everything to be one of the most beautiful events ever organized in the southern region of Brazil.


The participating athletes agreed to fight for free to promote the sport and are paying for their visits to the competition, as the event is running without financial income, such as tickets or registration, and is entirely dependent on volunteer work and donations of materials. There are already a few supporters.

Still, the organizers need to pay for an ambulance to ensure the fighters' safety, as well as the services of a professional rescuer, renting the octagon, chairs for the public present, purchase of hygiene supplies, among other items.

All this movement is important because it will give opportunity to young people who dream of following the path of sport, because if a child is not guided by the right people from an early age, the whole society may suffer later.

For this reason, the creators of the competition are open to establish partnerships with sponsors who want to link their brand to Titãs Fight and also to the CT Guetto Diamond Chico Mendes Fight Project (social project).

- “And whoever can help with any amount, please contribute to our Vakinha. Don't be ashamed to donate the minimum amount, everything is valuable for the event to exist and many objectives are at stake. Thank you very much. ”- thanks Thiago Lapolli,“ Tubarão ”.

One Hero Series MMA events scheduled for June 20-21 in Shanghai

After racking up huge losses - which increase every year - the ONE Championship announced on Monday that it was cutting 20% ​​of its team worldwide as a way to 'ensure its longevity'.

However, Josh Gross - a journalist specializing in MMA - commented that the layoffs go well beyond the 20% that ONE announced, with a figure "closer to 50% - 60% of its workers, which includes all freelancers hired" .

It is worth remembering that in 2018 alone, the company had losses of almost $ 59 million, totaling $ 126 million in accumulated losses.

Also on Monday, ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong announced a $ 70 million increase in institutional investor funds. Despite this cash injection, he said job cuts in "non-essential" areas are needed to isolate the company from an expected economic slowdown.

The extra funding came from existing sponsors and a new institutional investor - a "$20 billion fund" from the United States whose identity will be revealed in the coming weeks.

The Singapore-based organization, which promotes MMA, Muay Thai and kickboxing cards across Asia, has between 201 and 500 employees, according to its LinkedIn profile.

However, the promotion that has not hosted an event since February, may resume the promotion of fight shows as of July, according to comments by CEO Chatri Sityodtong granted to AFP: Agence France-Presse, still on Monday .

But even before the return of the ONE Championship shows next month, the One Hero Series, an elimination tournament that selects fighters for the main events of the franchise, will be held in Shanghai (or Shanghai) in the next days 20 and 21 June, with ONE Hero Series 13 and ONE Hero Series 14, respectively.

The ONE Hero Series 13 'main event' will be a rematch between Ze Lang Zha Xi and Liang Hui. The two have fought a few times on the Chinese mixed martial arts scene.

Zha Xi (12-4-1) is coming from a decision victory over Bu Huo You Ga in ONE Hero Series 12 last December. It was the third consecutive victory for the WLF veteran.

In turn, Hui (5-4-1), will make his debut in ONE Hero Series. He faced Zha Xi for the first time at Kunlun Fight 45 in 2016 and on that occasion the fight ended in a draw.

Previously, all ONE Hero Series events were broadcast on YouTube. The public around the world could watch the complete event 'live' as well as its reproduction on the free video streaming platform.

But both the ONE Hero Series 13 and ONE Hero Series 14 will be broadcast only in China. It remains for MMA fans outside that country to seek the results of the events later, on specialized websites.
