My Thoughts on ONE Infinity
Highly anticipated flyweight championship bout between champion Adriano Moraes and challenger, Demetrious Johnson recently got moved to a newly introduced Infinty card. When I first heard this, I was confused, my original thought was ‘what is ONE infinity’ but I then discovered it’s the greatest thing ONE has ever done.
In a nutshell, ONE infinity is a ONE event with fantastic fights. The inaugural event features three title bouts including two of the most popular names ONE has to offer, Demetrious Johnson and middleweight and light heavyweight champion, Aung La N Sang. The card also features a light heavyweight kickboxing title bout which should also be really good.
The second ONE Infinity event features two title bouts as of writing, a heavyweight championship fight and a lightweight title fight. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait for both of these fights however it’s not my favourite bout on the card. That has to be Eddie Alvarez fighting Dagi. When I first saw this fight announced, I couldn’t believe it. Eddie Alvarez has overcame the odds in the past but I don’t know if he can do it against Dagi but time will tell.
Overall, ONE Infinity appears to be just like a typical ONE event but much bigger and this is such a great move by ONE. There will be a lot of eyes on the product and I can definitely see them entering the American market with a move like this. Having stacked cards generates hype and that’s what ONE needs, not enough people talk about this promotion. ONE is great and more people need to see this.
