MANILA--If two One Championship events are not enough to satisfy the Filipinos' annual MMA craving, how about four?

One announced on Thursday that four fight cards will happen next year in the Philippines.

In fact, One's second offering for 2018 will happen at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay on Jan. 26, just six nights after the Jakarta Convention Center will be open for MMA action. One will return to the said venue on July 27.

As usual, the MOA Arena will have a One event in April, Apr. 20 to be precise, and in November, particularly Nov. 16.

In total, One will hold 24 fight cards including its inaugural event in Seoul in July and in Tokyo in September.
