Miesha Tate joins ONE Championship as Vice President

November 8, 2018

Miesha Tate has been named a Vice President of ONE Championship according to the company on Thursday morning.

Tate, the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, is moving to Singapore. In a press release, Tate stated the following:  “I am thrilled to join ONE Championship as a Vice President.   I truly believe in its mission of unleashing real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration. I’m honored to bring my experience as a World Champion and to help inspire the next generation of athletes. And of course, I am excited to relocate to my new home, Singapore, and travel throughout Asia!”

This is another big move by ONE Championship which signed former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez and “traded” for former UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

Payout Perspective:

It’s clear that ONE Championship is making some big moves with an eye toward expanding its reach to North America.  Whether it is through an eventual television deal in North America, events in North America or just hiring former UFC stars to entice fans to watch its product, ONE is spending some money to do something big in 2019.
