A recent X post noted that the recently launched ONE Championship mobile game appears to have an edge over the UFC 5. The MMA community is buzzing about this latest combat sports game showdown as the gaming world continues its trend toward mobile platforms.


Both games aim to capture the adrenaline-pumping action of MMA. However, an X post by the handle, TheArtOfWar6 , suggested that ONE Championship’s mobile iteration boasts superiority over its UFC counterpart. This feedback is surprising to some, given the typically higher expectations and standards set for the UFC under CEO, Dana White. The post in mention had the caption, “ONE Championship mobile game looking better than UFC 5”.

ONE Championship and the UFC operate in the world of MMA promotion. However, they cater to different markets and employ different promotional strategies. Moreover, they are different in philosophy. UFC is a global powerhouse with a significant Western footprint spearheaded by Dana White. Led by Chatri Sityodtong, ONE Championship is a dominant force in Asia, with a unique approach to martial arts. Both promotions contribute significantly to the growth of MMA.

Even though the promotions are rivals, there has been some interaction between the two. The trade of Demetrious Johnson and Ben Askren was made possible with it. Johnson, who lost his title to Henry Cejudo, was traded to One Championship by Dana White and the UFC for Ben Askren, who was retired but still contractually obligated to the Asian promotion. Johnson would go on to win and defend the One Flyweight championship. Askren, on the other hand, could not replicate his success from Bellator and One Championship in the UFC.
