    ONE Warriors Code Recap, TFC, UFC Aukland Update - Asian MMA Podcast
    Let’s start off with a quick recap of ONE Championships Warrior’s Code
    And If you regularly watch ONE Championship be sure to check out the live-streamed commentary and breakdowns that I have been doing during the shows with John Ko of Kumite TV. They stream live on the Asian MMA YouTube Channel, Links are in the show notes. 
    This was a pretty good card, it had The main event was a Muay Thai title bout that saw Petch take home the strap. 
    Because that was the main event though this card was held in a ring instead of a cage which I am just not a fan of. 
    In the co-main Reinier De Ridder took a UD over Leanardo Ataides and positions himself as the top challenger for Aung La’s Middleweight strap. 
    In other action on the card, Luri Lapicus made easy work of Marat Gafurov earning a first-round submission win. 
    Koyomi Matsushima got a beautiful TKO win over a very powerful Jae Woong Kim 
    One of my favorite fighters Sunoto earned a UD over Nurul Fikri 
    The only woman's bout on the card saw Itsuki Hirata get a third round stoppage over Nyrene Crowley. 
    Itsuki looked fantastic, and she seems to be taking a page out of Stamps book with all of her between round dancing and really trying to put on a show. 
    I’m wondering if she's trying to angle for a match with Stamp, let’s see. 
    I’ll say tho, the stamp dance rolls off the tongue a lot easier than the Itsuki dance. 
    ONE Championship has also announced that they will be holding tryouts for ONE Warriors Series in Japan on March 8th in Osaka. 
    Without a doubt, ONE is looking to boost the number of Japanese fighters on the roster now that they are holding shows in the country. 
    In UFC news Thai woman's fighter Loma Lookboonmee has a new opponent for her fight at UFC Auckland on February 23rd as Angela Hill steps in to replace Hannah Goldy. 
    Pancrase strawweight champions Daichi Kitakata has broken his hand in training and will not be able to defend the strap at Pancrase 313, Adam Antolin. No word on when the fight might be rescheduled.  
    In other news, Korean promotion TFC has postponed its March 14th card due to the Coronavirus Outbreak, no news on a new date at this time. 
    However, this weekend in Thailand UFC Vet and the hardest working fighter in Asian MMA Will Choppe will host Thailand Fighting Championship 4 in Phuket. Certainly a show worth checking out. 
    And that is all I have for you guys today.

    Shinya Aoki Pipe Bomb Article Trashing ONE Championship
    Last week Shinya Aoki published an article that was a pipe bomb that trashed ONE Championship saying they would go out of business in 2020. It was then edited and republished as a much more ONE FC Friendly article. I discuss this and more with MMA Journalist Ant Walker

    ONE Championship Century Paywalled Typhoon Hagibis and a Shiny New ONE Grand Prix Belt

    ONE Championship Century Paywalled Typhoon Hagibis and a Shiny New ONE Grand Prix Belt

    ONE Championship Century Paywalled Typhoon Hagibis and a Shiny New ONE Grand Prix Belt
     
    First things first, ONE Century isn’t just a stacked card, it’s two stacked cards back to back! That is just nuts! There are so many belts on the line! If you are not planning to watch these events just punch yourself in the face! Man! This is gonna be crazy. 
    But from an MMA business perspective, the big news about this event is that ONE Will be moving the second card behind a paywall in the US for the first time. Of course, they have their broadcast deal with Turner so the first card will air on TNT. So if you have cable you should be able to watch that. 
    The more interesting part of this is that the second part of ONE Century will move behind the B/R Live paywall, which requires a $9.99 monthly subscription to view. 
    If you don’t have cable or want to shell out the $9.99 you might want to google what a VPN is and give that a shot. 
    I’m going to link to a report on The Body Lock if you guys want to take a deeper dive into this it’s a great piece of work for you to check out.
    Personally, I think it’s a good time and the right market for ONE to give this a try. The US market is used to paying for premium MMA content, which this very much is. Though I think it is going to be a hard sell given the timing of the show in the states. 
    Despite ONEs consistently claims of billions of potential viewers for each show and the self hype of their unprecedented social media views they are still a fairly unknown commodity to all but the most hardcore of the US fans. So it will be interesting to see if they are actually able to move the needle being behind a paywall. 
    We can really only speculate about the motivation for the move behind the paywall, but it’s not much of a stretch of the imagination to think that ONE is likely needing to generate some real revenue at some point. There have been more than a few sites that have jumped into the finances of the MMA promotion over the past few years showing that they are hemorrhaging cash every chance they get. 
    While the markets in SE Asia where ONE is the most established would not really support a PPV model, hell, even the UFC is on free TV here in Thailand, the US and Europe is another story. 
    If ONE Can create the expectation in those markets that consumers will have to pay for their live events then it could give them a path at least part of the way to profitability. 
    There live shows are on another level when compared to the UFC and I think that comes across well when watching it on TV. However, their approach to production, storytelling and to hyping up their own views on how great they are might turn off some casual western viewers. 
    If they do well in the market and drive subscriptions to B/R Live then we know the other big promotions like the UFC and Bellator have to keep an eye on ONE. 
    If they don’t, does it stall their advance to the US? Does it make their investors take a second look and question their bet on ONE? 
    We will have to wait and see. 
    Before I wrap up this episode I just want to touch on that new ONE Grand Prix belt. This belt

Best Asian MMA podcast

I love this podcasts coverage of Asian MMA. There are tons of podcasts that talk about the UFC and Bellator but not a lot that cover what’s going on in Asia like ONE, Rizin, Road, Rebel and FMD.

As a host dana does a great job of diving into the coverage and he really has a deep knowledge of the scene in Asia.
