RUF Nation will continue its “Road to ONE” heavyweight tournament on Saturday, December 18th.
That evening, the promotion will hold RUF 45: Winter Wars at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, and an explosive double main event will headline an exciting night of MMA action.
The first headlining “Road to ONE” heavyweight tournament quarterfinal matchup will feature Terrance Jean-Jacques squaring off against Michael Quintero, and the second will pit Cameron Chism-Brungard against Eduardo Perez.
The two winners will advance to the semifinal round of the “Road to ONE” heavyweight tournament.
This past February, ONE Championship partnered with Arizona-based organization Ringside Unified Fighting (better known as RUF Nation) for the “Road to ONE” heavyweight tournament, which aims to discover the world’s next great heavyweight superstar.
The tournament champion will receive a life-changing $100,000+ contract to compete in ONE Championship, which features the likes of ONE Heavyweight World Champion Arjan “Singh” Bhullar, former titleholder Brandon “The Truth” Vera, and BJJ legend Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida.
In addition to the two massive “Road to ONE” heavyweight tournament quarterfinal matchups, there are 14 other bouts confirmed for the bill, and more could be announced in the coming days. Tickets for the show are available here.
