On May 18, 2018, ONE Championship will be in its home country Singapore for “ONE: Unstoppable Dreams.” For the organization’s leader, Chatri Sityodtong, it is an honor to have multiple-time gold medalist Michael Phelps as a special guest at the upcoming event.
“I am very excited to announce that multiple-time swimming gold medalist, Michael Phelps, will be at ‘ONE: Unstoppable Dreams’ as our special guest for the evening,” Sityodtong stated. “Michael is the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time.”
Phelps is the most decorated swimmer in history, capturing a total of 28 medals including a record-setting 23 gold medals, over the course of his career. He utilized his performance bonus for winning eight gold medals in 2008 to establish the Michael Phelps Foundation.
The foundation is committed to growing the sport of swimming. It addresses the need for water-safety through its signature program called im, which is available through the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Special Olympics International.
For Sityodtong, it is an absolute honor to have Phelps sitting at the front row of “the greatest martial arts spectacle in the world.” The ONE Championship chairman and CEO said, “Just by having his presence cageside will be a huge inspiration to all our ONE Championship athletes and to all the fans in attendance.”
Featuring three world title contests, “ONE: Unstoppable Dreams” will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. In the main event, reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee of Singapore will defend her world title against martial arts veteran Mei “V.V” Yamaguchi of Tokyo, Japan.
In the ONE Super Series co-main event, Muay Thai legend Sam-A Gaiyanghadao of Evolve MMA in Singapore will face Sergio “The Samurai” Wielzen of the Netherlands for the inaugural ONE Super Series Flyweight Muay Thai World Championship. In the second co-main event, reigning ONE Featherweight and Lightweight World Champion Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen of Australia will defend his featherweight title against top contender Christian “The Warrior” Lee of Singapore.
