The ONE FC Flyweight championship will be on the line between champion Adriano Moraes and Grand Prix champion and former UFC champ Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson during “ONE on TNT 1”. While not the first time ONE FC has aired on TNT this will be the first in this series. The show will air live at 10 pm est right after AEW Dynamite. Former UFC and Bellator Lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez will also fight that night as he takes on Iuri Lapicus in the co-main event.
The “ONE On TNT” series will air every Wednesday in April after Dynamite.
Mike’s Take: Obviously this is huge for ONE FC’s foothold in the states. They claim to be the biggest MMA promotion in Asia and are throwing tons of money around. Dynamite is a great lead in for the show and if it sticks, we could see the company begin to take off. If they secure a full time deal with TNT they could potentially become the number 2 promotion surpassing Bellator, who has been relegated to CBS Sports Network and lost their DAZN deal.
