Teams from over 60 countries have been invited to participate in the two-day tournament, and will be competing for national pride in the discipline of mixed martial arts across 16 weight divisions, both male and female. At the end of the two days, the top male and female athletes will earn a contract with ONE Championship worth USD $100,000 each. In addition, the winner of each weight division will earn a one year training scholarship at Evolve MMA, Asia's premier championship brand for martial arts.
