The promotion last held an event outside of Thailand for its US debut in May.

ONE Championship CEO, Chatri Sityodtong broke the news on Facebook that the promotion is returning to Singapore on September 30. 

Chatri confirmed with the South China Morning Post that this Amazon Prime card will not be an additional show, but the postponed ONE Fight Night 14, which was originally booked on September 2. The show has been moved backed by four weeks and will take place just a week before ONE Fight Night 15 on October 7. This means that the Interim Atomweight MMA World Title fight between Stamp Fairtex and Seo Hee Ham will lead the promotion's return to Singapore.

ONE's last visit to Singapore was on March 25, when Superlek first defended his Flyweight Kickboxing title against short-notice replacement, Danial Williams.

In 2023, following a deal with Thailand's Channel 7 HD and Tero Entertainment, ONE launched ONE Friday Fights, a Thai prime time show with heavy focus on Muay Thai bouts. As a result, ONE has seemingly relocated operations, with even its monthly Amazon Prime events being hosted at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. 

This year, only the Impact Arena event on January 14, the previous Singapore event on March 25 and the US debut on May 5 took place outside of the prestigious Muay Thai arena.

ONE has not organized the numbered event series that air during Asian prime time since ONE 164 in the Philippines last year. Apart from the return to Singapore, ONE is expected to hold its first event in Qatar with a star-studded card and more events in the US are expected to be announced soon.
