ONE Championship™ (ONE), revealed more details about ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX, which will be broadcast live on Friday, 30 October, from the Singapore Indoor Stadium. ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX will feature four World Title bouts and a total of six match-ups in the fight card.

This event continues ONE’s partnership with the Singapore government to pilot the return of international sports productions, scheduled to take place since the country’s implementation of Wuhan Virus related measures earlier this year. All bouts will take place audience-free and behind closed doors at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, with only athletes, officials, and crew onsite.

In line with Singapore’s approach to resuming activities in a calibrated and safe manner, ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX will implement all necessary measures to ensure the safety of its athletes, officials, and crew.
