ONE FC has announced that it’s first event in Beijing, China will be postponed from October 31, 2014 to December 19.

 

CEO Victor Cui was quoted with the announcement on ONE FC’s Facebook page,

“We’ve decided to add an additional event in China THIS YEAR to ensure that our fans get what they want, making it a total of 2 events in mainland China in 2014. To accommodate for the additional event, our Beijing event, ONE FC: DYNASTY OF CHAMPIONS, will be held on 19 December 2014.”

Originally slated for the China entry card were a match between former Legend FC Champ Adrian Pang versus Vincent Latoel, and former Legend FC Champ Ji Xian versus RUFF stand out Song Ya Dong. No word on the continuity of these matches was announced.

As reported by James Goyder, the event was also to feature one night four-man tournaments at flyweight and featherweight comprised of Chinese fighters, with the intent to crown a national champion.

When ONE FC originally announced its China expansion plans in June of 2014, the promotion stated it would hold four shows for the China market,

ONE FC will be doing 10 events per year in China in partnership with AMC Live, China’s premier event promotion company. ONE FC will throw 4 events in mainland China this year and 10 events annually thereafter.

An official announcement by ONE FC regarding the reduction of events for 2014 was not announced prior to Cui’s statement today.
