Well this is super cool news! One of our long time friends is set to return to MMA!



Please join me in welcoming legendary Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu trailblazer Tom DeBlass (9-2) to ONE Championship! A true champion with Viking warrior blood, he will be competing in mixed martial arts in the heavyweight division, and possibly the light heavyweight division too. With his athleticism and finishing abilities, Tom has the potential to take both divisions by storm, and make a world title run. Of course, he will have to conquer some monumental challenges in order to do so. He has told me that the world will see the very best version of Tom DeBlass in history.

Not only is Tom a world champion grappler and a ferocious competitor, but he is also a role model with a heart of gold. I am not sure how it happened, but Tom and I somehow developed a friendship over time through Facebook. We share many of the same life philosophies, and we developed a mutual respect and admiration for each other. If you don’t follow Tom on social media, I strongly recommend that you do. He shares so much wisdom and truth (in addition to hilarious entertainment). His life story is also truly inspiring.

Welcome to the world’s biggest stage of martial arts, Tom! LET’S GOOOOO!!!
