ONE Championship, the big boss of martial arts organizations, is making a grand comeback to Japan. Mark your calendars for January 28 because it’s going down at the Ariake Arena in Tokyo with the epic ONE 165: Rodtang vs. Takeru. This is not just any event; it’s a historic pay-per-view spectacle, and the cherry on top? A five-round flyweight kickboxing super-fight starring none other than ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon going toe-to-toe with Japan’s kickboxing superstar, Takeru Segawa.
But wait, there’s more! ONE 165 isn’t just about the kickboxing showdown. It’s also hosting a lightweight MMA clash that’ll have fans on the edge of their seats. We’re talking about the Japanese fighting legend Shinya Aoki throwing down with the American sensation Sage Northcutt. And guess what? This is just a taste of what’s to come, as more jaw-dropping bouts will be announced soon.
Now, for those who can’t resist being the first in line, early bird tickets are up for grabs on Rakuten Ticket. Thanks to a swanky deal with Never Say Never (NSN), Rakuten Ticket is bringing live ONE events back to Japan for years to come. If you’re itching for more ticket info, it’s all there waiting for you.
