Asia’s largest mixed martial arts organization, ONE Championship, has announced a trio of high-stakes matchups for its inaugural event in the Middle Eastern sports hub of Qatar. Dubbed ONE 166: Qatar, the event is set to take the stage at the Lusail Sports Arena on March 1, as confirmed by a recent post on the organization’s social media channels.

Tickets for this historic event are on sale now at the Virgin Megastore and Q-Tickets.

Reigning ONE Strawweight MMA World Champion Jarred “The Monkey God” Brooks is ready to make his first World Title defense, and it comes against a familiar rival.

The American star will put his gold on the line against former strawweight MMA king and current #1-ranked contender Joshua “The Passion” Pacio in a must-see World Title rematch at ONE 166: Qatar.

Qatar will also showcase a clash of heavyweight contenders as red-hot Iranian star Amir Aliakbari — who is riding a three-fight, three knockout winning streak — takes on former ONE heavyweight king Arjan Bhullar of India.

The event will also play host to a battle between former ONE Flyweight Submission Grappling World Title challengers as Yemeni-Saudi BJJ black belt Osamah Almarwai takes on former IBJJF World Champion Cleber Sousa of Brazil.

As a part of grassroots efforts to develop martial arts talent in the region, ONE will also host a Road to ONE submission grappling tournament during the ONE 166: Qatar fight week.

In addition to playing host to a pair of grappling super-fights, Qatar’s finest men’s and women’s grapplers will compete for US$100,000 contracts across multiple divisions as they attempt to realize their dream of competing on ONE Championship’s global stage.

Additional details on the ONE 166: Qatar fight card and the Road to ONE

submission grappling tournament will be revealed in the coming weeks.

ONE 166: Qatar will be broadcast in the Middle East region on beIN Sports starting at 3:30pm AST.

Details on how to watch the global broadcast, which can be viewed in over 190 countries worldwide, will be announced at a later date.
