Heading into 2019, ONE FC is certainly the place to be.

The Asian powerhouse has been in the news nowadays firstly after getting hold of former Bellator and UFC lightweight champion ‘The Underground King’ Eddie Alvarez.

However that’s not enough, ONE FC has now got another former UFC champion on their roster, none other than former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha ‘Cupcake’ Tate. This time however, not as a fighter, but as a vice-president.
