Rich Franklin’s ONE WARRIOR SERIES Holds Second Event in Singapore on July 19

July 12, 2018 – Singapore: Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series, a subsidiary of ONE Championship™ (ONE), the largest global sports media property in Asian history, has just announced that it will be hosting their second event, this 19 July in Singapore. The first event, held last March, was a huge success and saw the rise of a handful of incredible ONE Championship martial arts prospects.

Episodes of Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series are available on ONE Championship’s YouTube channel:

Season 1 of ONE Warrior Series awarded four prospects with USD $100,000+ ONE Championship contracts and handed out three Warrior Bonuses after an exciting evening of thrilling bouts showcasing the future of martial arts in Asia. Season 2 of ONE Warrior Series took host Rich Franklin and co-host Jonathan Fong on an epic adventure through Asian cities Jakarta, Flores Island, Bali, Kota Kinabalu, Labuan, Brunei, Johor Bahru, Batu Pahat, culminating in a blockbuster Midseason Finale in Singapore which will be broadcast LIVE on the ONE Super App on 19 July.

Rich Franklin, CEO of ONE Warrior Series, stated: “Season 2 of ONE Warrior Series has taught me to view the world through the perspective of the athletes recruited. We met athletes who traveled halfway around the world away from their families to pursue dreams, and reunited athletes with families they hadn’t seen since they were young children. Everyone has a story from which we can learn and it is my privilege and honor to share these stories with the world.”

Jonathan Fong, Director of ONE Warrior Series, stated: “Our bet to move away from the major cities to recruit for Season 2 has paid off! We recruited a number of promising athletes with very compelling stories to tell. Traveling to some remote locations within Asia not only tested our resolve, but also showcased to us the lesser known and untouched beauty this continent has to offer.”

Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series is a travel series talent search which aims to discover new martial arts talent across Asia, providing promising young athletes with the platform to unleash their martial arts greatness. Franklin, who serves as the show’s host, travels across the Asian continent with co-host Jonathan Fong, searching for talent, experiencing local cultures and testing their boundaries. Selected athletes will compete in professional bouts with a chance at earning a contract with ONE Championship exceeding US $100,000+ based on performance.

The second half of Season 2 will air in September 2018.
