ONE Championship heavyweight king Arjan Bhullar has signed a new contract with the promotion – and he says it is the first of its kind. The Indian-Canadian, 35, shared the news about his new deal with ONE soon after the Asian martial arts organisation unveiled its new 5-year US broadcast deal with Amazon’s Prime Video. He also shed some light on the terms of the contract, claiming it is unlike any other in combat sports history. “I’ve signed a new contract with ONE Championship that will have me fighting multiple times in the year,” Bhullar wrote on Instagram. “I’m also free to jump into the squared circle of professional wrestling between fights. Never been done before … Never been allowed before. “It’s been too long, time to remind some people who the king of the jungle is. Hoping the company gets my date fixed ASAP and maybe you’ll be able to catch me on Amazon Prime.” Bhullar went on to thank his management firm, CAA Combat Sports, and ONE chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong. ONE Championship signs 5-year US broadcast deal with Prime Video CAA Combat Sports also made a statement on Bhullar’s new deal, echoing the heavyweight’s claim that it is unprecedented in the combat sports industry. “Arjan Bhullar is officially back with ONE Championship and, in an unprecedented move, also able to pursue professional wrestling as an active fighter,” a post on the agency’s official Instagram page reads. Bhullar (11-1) has not fought since May 2021, when he scored a second-round TKO victory over long-reigning heavyweight champion Brandon Vera to usurp the throne for himself. He debuted in the organisation with a decision win over Italy’s Mauro Cerilli in October of 2019. His move to ONE was preceded by a 3-1 run in the UFC. ONE created an interim title to keep the heavyweight division moving in Bhullar’s stead, pitting Russia’s Anatoly Malykhin against Kirill Grishenko of Belarus. Malykhin (10-0) won the fight with a highlight-reel knockout in the second round. The 34-year-old interim champion will most likely be the one to welcome Bhullar back to the ONE Championship Circle. However, that fight will have to happen outside ONE’s home base of Singapore, where all of its recent events have occurred, as Russian fighters are not currently allowed to compete on cards.
