I’d like to announce my official commitment to ONE Championship.
Life sometimes has twists and turns we don’t expect. This pandemic brought all of us to places we never expected to be.
Yet this pandemic also forced ourself to look hard and long in the mirror at who we are. I remember the first time I went to corner Garry Lee Tonon, the owner of One, Chatri Sityodtong, approached me as he knew me for years. I was so impressed with him, his staff, and the fans. I watched the event, the fighters, the respect, and I immediately loved MMA again, I loved the code of the Samurai, and no organization emulates this code like One.
I’m not claiming to come back and knock anyone out, or even win. I simply want to inspire everyone and remind everyone that this life is a fight, every day we must fight for what we want, and it’s never easy. I promise you that I will give my best, always and forever. At 38, I can ride into the sunset with never testing myself again. Yet, this opportunity is simply a Godsend, and it’s my duty to accept. Now it’s time to get back into fight shape. Thank you for the support and thank you for the opportunity, Chatri. – Wrote Tom DeBlass on his Facebook profile.
