I'm glad Asia mma market is doing better. Unfortunately until there is a promoter putting on constant fights then it will be in the same position as it has been for years. When the UFC full on invades Asian mma scene with its well known fighters I think it will start the revival hopefully. I honestly think there needs to just be a non corrupt promoter pushing the fights

90% market share by what measure? Revenue? That's usually what is meant by that, and that'd be saying they are making over 9 times as much money out of Asia as every other MMA promotion combined including the UFC. I find that extremely difficult to believe. An alternative interpretation that they get 90+% of television viewers is almost as dubious. 90% of live gate attendance is not possible.

So what the hell are they talking about exactly?

Probably means that there are numerous promotions in Asia and the rest of the world, that they have a affiliation with, so I'm guessing maybe a talent exchange as well.

Might have to read the One Asia MMA Summit or something.

Fun Fact - I was in the NCR for their last card in the PI (Phillipines) - tickets were $5-20 USD a piece

They did have a good local promotional effort (bus wraps, billboards, etc.) but that $ aint gonna work internationally

Networking with smaller shares means networking with the supplier, not the market (and even then I don't see where the fuck "90%" could come from). Nothing against OneFC but I'm pretty sure this is just a bullshit promotional thing.

Anyone watch One FC star Eduard Folayang get beat last night in URCC? Wonder if he's still next in line for the LW title shot?

While Eric Kelly won in overtime, he certainly didn't look like the guy who Ko'd Jens Pulver against his opponent who was 0-1 going into the fight and was ruled a draw at the end of regulation.

URCC with 10 years of shows seems to be the premier show in Asia, while they don't have former UFC stars headlining events---they have secured most of the regions top talent--often loaning their guys to One FC events.

Will be interesting to see of Eric Kelly and Eduardo Folayang get their title shots after the lackluster performances last night.

Legends FC just announced a huge tv deal---

And the RUFF promotion in China seems to be attracting most of the top Chinese fighters not currently signed to the UFC.

Asia is on the cusp of an mma revolution--and while One FC is able to share fighters, the fact that URCC has the ability to pull fighters from announced title fights for the One FC...prolly proves more than 10% of the market is still available. Phone Post

PXC has also greatly improved their stock putting two of their top contenders into the UFC in recent months while expanding their TV deals.

Literally mma events every weekend in Asia nowadays. Phone Post

Maybe if sites stop running these promoter fibs without any kind of fact-checking, the promoters will stop lying to them? Just a thought

One FC has been a welcome addition to the asian MMA scene but they should settle down with their ridiculous claims. The have held all of 6 events and are hardly the UFC East at this point.

I mean think about what Cui is saying. 90%?

Until they regularily hold major events in China, Japan, India, South Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Phiillipines and Macau I don't consider them to be this huge pan-asian MMA powerhouse.

They have a long way to go before they can claim to be as dominant as they think they are. The UFC has been slowly building business in China and India, have just returned successfully to Japan and broke into Macau this year.
