ONE Championship, Asia's largest mixed martial arts promotion, will kick off 2016 with a bang, as it brings its world-class MMA event to Changsha, China on 23 January. ONE Championship has set the stage for another thrilling night of world-class mixed martial arts action.
Taking place at the Changsha Stadium in Changsha, China, ONE Championship will delight fans with an electrifying lineup of exciting fights headlined by a main event which will see ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes defend his title against challenger Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon of the Philippines.
"ONE Championship continues its dedication to cultivating the sport of mixed martial arts in China with another adrenaline-filled night of fights," said CEO Victor Cui, in a statement released to the media.
"This is a great way to start 2016 and is just the tip of the iceberg of what's to come. Our success in Beijing sets the stage for an even better event in Changsha."
ONE Bantamweight World Champion, Bibiano Fernandes of Brazil is one of the most dominant title holders in ONE Championship.
Considered one of the best fighters in the world and is ranked as one of the top bantamweights, Fernandes has amassed a stellar professional record which hasn't seen him lose a bout in the last five years. His technical ground game paired with his fluid striking and well-rounded skills have brought him to the top of his division.
Fernandes will now defend his title against a very strong competitor in Kevin Belingon.
Kevin Belingon of the famed Team Lakay stable in Baguio City, Philippines has long been one of the most exciting fighters in ONE Championship's roster.
Belingon possesses fearsome striking power brought about by his high-level Wushu background.
His highlight reel of spectacular finishes has seen him victorious against the top fighters in his division, and he now looks to make the most out of his much-anticipated crack at ONE Championship gold when he takes on defending champion, Bibiano Fernandes.
Apart from the main event, a slew of international and local mixed martial artists are expected to perform. The event will also hold the Changsha Bantamweight Tournament which seeks to discover the next local MMA superstar.
Two Beijing Featherweight Champs to Battle Inside Cage
Beijing featherweight champions Li Kai Wen (4-2) and Yang Sen (2-0) are set to stand across each other inside the ONE Championship cage this 23 January, at ONE Wujie: Dynasty of Champions which takes place in the Changsha Stadium in Changsha, China.
The bout will serve as part of the undercard to the main event between reigning ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes as he takes on Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon of the Philippines.
Li Kai Wen is on a nifty three-fight win streak, clinching the first instance of the Beijing Featherweight Tournament Championship with two wins in just one night.
He defeated opponent Nathan Ng by TKO in his most recent outing.
An explosive finisher, Li brings electricity to the crowd with his fast-paced and powerful striking and has the ability to end a fight at any given moment.
Li's opponent, Yang Sen enjoyed an eventful 2015, winning the second iteration of the Beijing Featherweight Tournament.
Yang's impeccable striking and well-calculated offense has brought him success inside the ONE Cage, as he looks to prove that Chinese fighters are truly world-class mixed martial artists.
It will be a battle of local martial arts superstars when Li and Yang finally step inside the cage, and one that fans are definitely looking forward to.
The Changsha event is part of an ambitious two-year plan laid out by ONE Championship, that sets to stage over 20 live events over the course of a two-year period. The promotion, Asia's largest and most prolific, has held successful shows previously in Beijing and Shanghai. They will look to replicate their success this time in Changsha, in what looks to be a great year for the organization.
Part of ONE Championship's phenomenal growth plan is developing local mixed martial arts heroes, particularly in China where the market is largely untapped but steadily booming. With the rise of heroes such as Li Kai Wen and Yang Sen, the promotion is headed in the right direction.
The growth of MMA in the region can also be attributed to ONE Championship's aggressive expansion.

Launch of fitness tools BioScore and CustomFit coincide with the premiere of Fit for Fashion Season 2 to inspire viewers to start their own transformations
Philippines, 12January 2016 – Ever wondered how old your body really is, compared to your chronological age? Well, now you can find out! Fitness First continues to build on its reputation as the fitness leader with the launch of BioScore, a bespoke health and fitness assessment which determines your biological or ‘fitness age,’ compared to your real age.
Unlike other health fitness assessments, BioScore doesn’t look at bodyweight or body fat percentage, but instead, focuses on other key metrics. Conducted by a trained specialist, the BioScore assessment comprises a series of health and fitness tests, and a comprehensive lifestyle questionnaire, in order to obtain a more holistic picture of a person’s health:
· Health test: This element of the test looks at the status of key vital statistics including height to waist ratio, lung function and blood pressure.
· Fitness test: This element includes a series of short and simple exercises to assess aerobic fitness, power, strength, flexibility, agility and core endurance. Exercises include a TRX row, standing jumps, core endurance drills, hexagonal agility, and a 500 m row.
· Lifestyle test: This element goes beyond the physical with a questionnaire that looks at lifestyle choices in and out of the gym, such as nutrition, stress levels, sleep and drinking habits to build a bigger picture of one’s health.
Once the assessment has taken place, results from all three tests will be analysed to determine one’s BioScore – a number which will either be higher or lower than one’s actual age. A person’s BioScore is the difference between the biological age and actual age, and this will be either a plus (+) or a minus (-) score displayed in years. For example, a person whose actual age is 33 years old, but whose assessment scores result in him or her being 30 years old will have a BioScore of -3.
Simon Flint, CEO of Fitness First Asia, said, “The BioScore assessment is a great tool for anyone interested in wanting to know how they can improve their fitness, or anyone wanting a starting point before setting off on his or her fitness journey. It takes a holistic approach, looking at someone’s lifestyle rather than just how many times they exercise each week. Based on the results of this assessment, you have a deeper knowledge of your fitness and health, without relying solely on physical appearance as a gauge. Following this, you can then develop a realistic strategy and action plan in order to improve your BioScore.”
One way to do this is through using the cutting edge CustomFit app, the other proprietary tool that Fitness First is making available to the public in January for free on both iOS and Android platforms.
A unique digital training system, CustomFit has been designed by Fitness First’s very own experts around the Theory of Intrinsic Motivation1, to help users to develop their intrinsic motivation to get fit. It features a library of over 800 exercises (with video content) and a Fitness LogicTM system, which will get to know users’ preferences and deliver a set of inspiring personalized workouts to their phones. Through CustomFit, users will be able to track, analyze and share their progress, while comparing their Personal Bests with other likeminded people via leaderboards – anytime, anywhere. It will also be able to collect data such as steps, weight and height from any devices that push data to Apple Health and Google Health, and collect its own data such as workout frequency and length, as well as calories burned, which users can use to fine tune their fitness programs.
“CustomFit is easy to use – all you need to do to get started is to answer four simple questions ranging from your fitness goals to your experience level. CustomFit will then generate a selection of personalized workouts, based on those preferences. 200 of the exercises available in CustomFit will be bodyweight exercises that do not require equipment, so users can workout at home or in the park. We know that in today’s busy life there may be occasions where going to the gym isn’t always feasible, so we want to provide tools and content that will allow people to stay the course, both inside and outside the gym.”
“If you’ve done your BioScore assessment and are working with a personal trainer to improve that score and turn back the clock, he or she will be able to use CustomFit to create a customised programme that you can take with you wherever you are,” Flint continued.
Members of the public will be able to see how BioScore and CustomFit play a role in measuring the progress of the contestants on Season 2 of Fit for Fashion, the first of its kind television reality show that combines fitness and fashion and aims to encourage viewers to start their own transformation journeys. In conjunction with the premiere of Season 2 which will air on StarWorld South East Asia on 7 January and 13 January on StarWorld Philippines, users of CustomFit will be able to access premium content in the form of the Fitness First 10-week Get Fit Program.
“The Fitness First 10-week Get Fit Program was created to provide viewers with a taste of what the Fit for Fashion contestants go through, and reflects each of the show’s weekly themes. We hope that by watching Fit for Fashion, viewers will be inspired to kick start their own fitness journeys, and this Program will help them get started,” explained Flint.
The workouts, which increase in intensity over the course of the 10 weeks, is supplemented by a nutrition plan created by a licensed dietician, which members of the public can access on the Fit for Fashion website (http://fitforfashion.tv/).
“BioScore, CustomFit, the Fitness First 10-week Get Fit Program and Fit for Fashion are all born out of our in-depth fitness expertise and knowledge, befitting our reputation as the fitness leaders. Everyone wants to be healthier, and live a happier life full of confidence and vitality; there’s always room to improve your fitness levels and push yourself to go further than you thought you ever could. We hope that the tools and expertise we’ve made available will help people do so and turn back the clock.
