Asia's leading mixed martial arts promoter One Championship unveiled its 2018 calendar on Friday, with four events to be held in China next year.

Though One Championship has yet to cultivate a China-born world champion, the lucrative Chinese market has attracted the Singapore-based company to increase its presence in China.

The four 2018 events - in which three will be held in Shanghai in May, August and December - will follow a scheduled December 2017 event in Beijing.

The promoter has two China events held in 2017: in Macao in August and in Shanghai in September.

Asia is widely considered the home of mixed martial arts, with disciplines like wushu, Muay Thai, judo, karate and taekwondo all originating from the region.
