Ep 1: justsaying with Miesha Tate: MMA, Breaking Barriers, One Championship and The Apprentice

We have a chat with Miesha Tate – American mixed martial artist, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and current Vice President at One Championship.

Now based in Singapore, Miesha talks about her start in MMA and how the sport has since exploded in popularity as well as how she had to break barriers (and glass ceilings) as a female athlete.

Miesha shares her thoughts on the MMA scene in Asia, working at One Championship as well as a couple of tips for those that might send in an application to take part in the inaugural The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition.

The One Championship edition of ‘The Apprentice’ will feature 16 contestants handpicked from around the world in a high-stakes game of business competitions and physical challenges where the winner will receive a US$250,000 job offer to work for a year directly under Chatri Sityodtong as his protege at the ONE Championship Global Headquarters in Singapore.

A total of 12 of Asia’s top CEOs (1 CEO per episode) will be featured as guest judges alongside Sityodtong, who will test both business acumen and physical prowess of the contestants.

The business competitions will focus on a variety of real-world problems and industries. Meanwhile, the physical challenges will be graced by the World Champions from ONE Championship where contestants will aim to outshine them in feats of athletic ability and cardio endurance.

‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’ will be produced by ONE Championship’s production arm, ONE Studios, and will run on both streaming and linear platforms across the Pan Asian region in the second half of 2020.

The first season of ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’ will consist of a total of 13 episodes shot in different cities across Asia. Applications are now open.
