There are some jobs out there that you just can’t let any Tom, Dick and Hairy do. We’re talking about jobs like being a doctor, the CEO of Apple Computer, a commando or one of the toughest jobs in the world, being Santa Claus. I really wanted to add the President of the United States in that list but I remembered they let Bush do it so I guess they do let any Tom, Dick and Harry apply for that role. One job that requires the experience and skill of a very special individual is the position of VP of Operations and Competition for Asia’s biggest MMA promotion, ONE Fighting Championship. It’s a job that requires someone special to fill the role. It requires a special individual who can not only handle the responsibility that comes along with such a high profile job but who can also help mold the future of the company. ONE FC has found that special individual and he is the one and only Matt Hume.
ONE FC has appointed MMA legend Matt Hume as Vice President of Operations and Competition. Hume’s primary responsibilities include matchmaking and talent recruitment, managing standards in rules and regulations, and guardian of ONE FC’s first-class show experience. CEO of ONE FC, Victor Cui, had this to say about Hume joining his ONE FC team.
“Matt Hume is one of the pioneers of MMA. Before the sport had gained any exposure or publicity, Matt had dedicated his life to building the sport and developing world-class fighters. Matt has done just about everything one can do for the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. ONE FC is thrilled to have such an incredible MMA expert on board, and with his talent, influence and experience, we will continue to produce the greatest TV and live in-house experience in the world and forge ahead with signing the very top fighters on this planet.”
Prior to taking up this role in ONE FC, Hume served as a world class trainer, promoter, sanctioning body president, referee, event judge, rule director, matchmaker, television commentator and author. Hume is undeniably one of the most experienced and most respected individuals in the whole industry of mixed martial arts. To top it all off, despite all his accomplishments, Hume is really one of the most humble, friendly and genuine human beings you’ll ever meet. He’s the kind of guy who really deserves all the respect he gets.
“I’m honored to be a part of the largest and most exciting MMA promotion in Asia. Since ONE FC’s inception, I was heavily involved as the organization’s Chief Official and Head Referee. Time and time again, I have been thoroughly impressed by the quality of work that the extremely talented ONE FC staff has produced. ONE FC is a serious player in the ever-developing world of MMA, and I am confident that ONE FC will continue to take Asian MMA to unbelievable heights”, stated the new Vice President of Operations of ONE Fighting Championship, Matt Hume.
