It’s still unsure which weight class Loman will be competing in but he is expected to make his ONE debut later this year.
The 29-year-old Loman was the longest reigning champion in BRAVE before he decided to vacate his throne earlier this year to take his talents to a different platform.
“It’s an overwhelming opportunity, but I’m excited to join my Team Lakay brothers in the biggest martial arts organization in the world,” said Loman.
“I’m excited to enhance my skills on this platform and showcase my style to millions of viewers across the globe. Of course, fighting in a new promotion and a new environment will be a challenge, but it’s one I’m more than willing to face. I’m ready to show ONE Championship fans the best of Stephen Loman.”
Team Lakay has built a stellar reputation at ONE, having produced a slew of world champions in Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon and Joshua Pacio among others.
