OneFC Championship Belts - How do you want it? Empty OneFC Championship Belts - How do you want it?

Wed Aug 08, 2012 4:24 am
In all likelihood, OneFC will begin crowning their first champions before the end of the year as the ship is going quite strong and they've rooted themselves as a top promotion and that is the next step for the promotion to take. With a quickly growing roster of the top talent in Asia and even some of the more well known names from the west making OneFC their home, it could make it quite difficult to name a fight "the" championship fight.

Many options present themselves in this scenario. The UFC of course has been known to hold tournaments, as they are doing right now with the flyweight division. The rules are in place, however, to prohibit multiple fights in one night. Throwing more than four fighters into a tournament and you've got at least a six month tournament on your hands, if not more. When this occurs, by the time the semi-finals are reached, it may be hard to keep fans interested in a tournament that has taken so long. We saw this in the Strikeforce HWGP, as by the end of it, the fan faire had hit an brick wall, amongst other variables.

Another option would be to take advantage of promoting shows in Asia and hold multiple rounds in one night. We like the idea of doing a first round one night and doing the rest of the tournament at one huge event. Not only will this bring us back to the good ol' days, but it will make fighters prepare harder than they ever have, pending they make it to the second batch of fights. We are talking four rounds total, three plus a final, the fourth being held the first night and the final three being held at the tournament finals.

Fans need something exciting to look forward to. OneFC's divisions are becoming very deep, especially their lighter weight divisions. Tournaments could also provide the promotion the ability to book rematches of fights that gave fans what they wanted to see. We've seen all too many times fighters forgetting they're in a tournament, or so it seems, and going balls to the wall before hitting the wall in the following round.

Multi-round tournaments are what got the sport going, as the UFC made its name on this style in the beginning. There are so many variables that make this the exciting path to take, and it is the path we choose for the crowning of the first batch of OneFC champions.

Here could be some ideal champs for ONE FC should they prevail against who the org matches them up against.

HW: Arlovski
LHW: Babalu
MW: Melvin Manhoef
WW: Zorobabel Moreira
LW: Eddie Ng
FW: Kawajiri
BW: Bibi
FLYW: Allamurad Karayev or Kevin Belingon

ONE FC doesn't have much in the way of MW or LHW but they'll sign up even more talent soon I'm sure. I'm pretty excited for the 5th event.

they should have at least 4 top guys in every weight class so you can do a title fight and a #1 contender fight right away...

arlovski vs sylvia.....vs the winner of rolles vs bonello for example...

i like one fc...and i hope they can add more talent to crown champs soon

Can't wait until ONE starts crowning champs. They are an awesome org. There champion vs. champion fights are sweet, like DREAM vs. CFC BW champs coming up.

I hope they focus on 5 divisions, like PRIDE focused on 4 divisions with 9 events each year, and really build those rosters up with great fighters since they will be holding 12-18 events each year. FW, LW, MW, LHW, and HW would be sweet. Bibi could go back to 145 with this plan.
