It’s a done deal! A new promotional contract and fight agreement is in place. A big thx to my CAA team for doing a fantastic job over the last several weeks with negotiations.

ONE Championship has yet to announce Bhullar’s signing and date, location and opponent for his debut.
Bhullar, victorious in nine of 10 MMA bouts, signed with the UFC in 2017 after compiling a perfect 6-0 record and defeated Luis Henrique via decision in his Octagon debut before losing via submission to Adam Wieczorek in April 2018.
“Singh” returned to the winning column with a decision over Marcelo Golm before fighting out of his contract with a win over previously unbeaten Juan Adams in April. The ONE Championship heavyweight gold currently belongs to UFC veteran Brandon Vera, who last defended it with a 64-second knockout over Mauro Cerilli in November. Vera is currently scheduled to challenge Aung La Nsang for the light heavyweight title in Oct. 13.
