The list of ONE Super Series competitors appears to be already the largest collection of active strikers on the planet, with no other promotion able to match this level of talent and top names that have agreed to compete against each other.
Mr.Chatri looks then to be the first promoter able to offer through ONE a multi-purpose platform that will entertain fans with the most complete range of martial artists.
