ONE Championship inks a deal with GoDaddy to promote MMA in Asia

ONE Championship, a martial arts sports media property, inked a partnership with US web-hosting company, GoDaddy to promote mixed martial arts in Asia.

GoDaddy branding is set to be featured at One: Dynasty of Heroes, which will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 26 May.

Go Daddy's vice president of Asia, Roger Chen, commented: “We have a successful track record of partnerships with global sporting bodies and we’re delighted to partner with one of Asia’s largest sports media properties, One Championship. One Championship provides a great opportunity for GoDaddy to build relationships with people across Asia and bring attention to the importance of having a strong online presence.”

The event will feature One Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee as she defends her title against Brazil’s Istela Nunes. In the co-main event, One Welterweight World Champion Ben “Funky” Askren takes on rising young star Agilan “Alligator” Thani of Malaysia.

Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of One Championship, stated: “I’m thrilled to be working with GoDaddy as our partnership signifies another monumental moment for the sport of mixed martial arts and for One Championship. GoDaddy has a great history of working with other sporting organizations and it is a privilege for ONE Championship to announce this collaboration."

He further added, "Singapore is set to witness the biggest mixed martial arts event in history on 26 May, and we are delighted to have GoDaddy on board with us in delivering world-class MMA action to fans all over the globe.”

Former 2x Olympian and one of the best welterweights in the world pound-for-pound, Ben Askren, will grace the One Championship cage in the evening’s co-main event opposite the Agilan Thani. Thani earned the right to challenge Askren after going unbeaten in his professional career, winning seven bouts in a row.
