One Fighting Championships has signed a breakthrough deal with AMC Live Group to hold regular events in mainland China.

International MMA is finally coming to mainland China, as One Fighting Championship revealed on Thursday afternoon that they have signed a deal with AMC live Group, the premier event promotion in Asia, to hold 10 events annually in different locations across the nation.

Since the deal is effective immediately, the promotion is expected to stage four events in four different Chinese cities throughout the second half of 2014, but will quickly increase that number in 2015.

"This monumental agreement will redefine the sport of mixed martial arts forever," promotion CEO Victor Cui said in a statement. "ONE Fighting Championship will become the first world class mixed martial arts organization ever to hold an event in mainland China.

"China is the birthplace of martial arts like Sanda, Wushu, and Kung Fu and there is a rich martial arts tradition. ONE FC will be available to over one billion people in China alone and will bring adrenaline-pumping mixed martial arts action to ten different cities across the country a year."

A date for ONE FC's first event in China has yet to be determined.
