PARAÑAQUE--One Championship fans with LG televisions can now experience hard-hitting MMA action at home as the appliance company launched the new One Championship app at the Smart World App Store on Wednesday during the MMA promotion's press conference at the City of Dreams Grand Ballroom.

The app will let the One Championship fans watch live fights as it happen and relive some classics with on-demand viewing.

“We have engaged with One Championship for our beloved LG Smart TV users to feel the intensity of One Championship matches as if they’re watching live on the ringside in the comforts of their own home,” said LG vice president for home entertainment Tony An.

As a special treat, the first 20 people who will buy selected LG OLED TV models will not only get to witness One Championship live but also get to catch the bouts live at the Mall of Asia Arena on Dec. 11 for One: Spirit of Champions as they will receive two free VIP tickets each to the fight card.

Also, the fans will get a chance to meet, greet, and take a picture with Brandon Vera and Chi Lewis Parry, who will headline the main event for the first One heavyweight championship fight.
