Asia’s biggest MMA promotion, ONE Fighting Championship, announced this week that it had secured a broadcast deal with The Kapinoy Network as IBC-13 and that ONE FC footage will be available to view on domestic TV in the Philippines for the first time.
ONE FC will be shown on Saturday at 10:00pm starting from this primetime. IBC-13 is one of the major free to air channels in the Philippines meaning is government owned and remains the undisputed number 3 in viewership ratings. At present, ONE FC shows are broadcast live to the 28 countries all across the Asia, including the Philippines, by Star Sports but this move will allow people in the Philippines who don’t have cable or satellite TV to watch the likes of Honorio Banario, Eduard Folayang and Kevin Belingon in action.
