One Championship Successful Tokyo Press Conference

Tokyo, Japan: Asia’s leading MMA organization, ONE Championship, held its first-ever Japan press conference on August 23, 2018, at the Park Hyatt Tokyo in Shinjuku, Japan.

Partnering with Gloture, Tokyo’s leading creative agency, they made ONE Championship’s first penetration into the Japanese market a complete success. There were over 330+ people who attended this press conference alone. Fans, media, and photographers flooded the venue beyond max capacity. Not a single seat was left empty.

The enthusiasm from the crowd for ONE’s superstars was contagious. There were no words to describe the love and support both Japanese and international fans have for ONE’s athletes gracing the stage.

Legendary MMA athlete Renzo Gracie easily won over MMA fans with his humor, charm, and warrior spirit. Anyone in attendance can understand why he is an instant crowd favorite among MMA fans.

Currently ONE’s Heavyweight Champion, Brandon Vera was the first to put his name into ONE Championship’s first Japan tournament next year at Ryogoku Stadium in March 2019. He wowed audiences further with his thoughtful answer about working to give back to the Filipino community in the Philippines.
