“War of Dragons” set for July 11 in Taiwan

Well fans, it’s official.  After much speculation and pondering about when and where ONE FC would hold its first event in East Asia, CEO Victor Cui has given us an answer: Taiwan.

The event – called “War of Dragons” – will be held at the National Taiwan University Sports Center in Taipei on July 11.  There is no news yet on who will be fighting whom, but Cui will almost certainly stack the card with as many Taiwanese fighters as possible.  The Taiwanese-Canadian heavyweight, Paul Cheng, and former-Legend FC bantamweight, “Sam” Ming-Yen Sung will probably be on the card and may even be in the main or co-main event.
