WLC Making Big Plans For The Rest Of 2020 And Beyond

While the coronavirus pandemic silenced WLC earlier this year, the promotion is still moving forward with big plans.

When World Lethwei Championship debuted in 2017, the promotion put its foundation together in Yangon, Myanmar.

Now, while fighting through the coronavirus pandemic, the WLC is making some big plans for the future and taking the fighters of the organization around the world.

The promotion returned to live action recently with WLC 12: Hideout Battle with Souris Manderai and Maisha Katz colliding in the main event for the inaugural female bantamweight championship.

But plans are already in the works for some major traveling in the coming 18 months.

Before the pandemic, Phnom Penh in Cambodia was to be the first international event by the WLC. They were also targeting Japan, the United States and Thailand for future events. 

While those plans have been altered, officials are still working hard to make it happen.

The Japan event will be centered around the rescheduled Summer Olympics and some of the biggest venues available to be looked at to host. That includes the Tokyo Dome, Yokohama Arena, Ryogoku Kokugikan and the famous Saitama Super Arena. 

The latter has held UFC events, WWE pro wrestling cards and countless concerts featuring some of the biggest names in music history.

Fans around the world can catch WLC action on both CANAL+ and UFC Fight Pass. The promotion is also making its library available via its website.
