ONE Championship made their debut on American prime time television Wednesday night with an admittedly stacked card.
ONE on TNT 1 boasted both a flyweight title fight, the return of former UFC and Bellator champ Eddie Alvarez, and an appearance from ONE flyweight Muay Thai champ Rodtang Jitmuangnon, taking on short-notice replacement fighter Danial Williams, stepping in for Jacob Smith.
All eyes would be on Johnson, a popular pick for the Greatest of All Time, as he took on ONE flyweight champ Adriano Moraes, looking for a second major title after a historic UFC run. Johnson had already won the ONE flyweight grand prix, and the undisputed title would be the icing on the cake.
The event was ONE’s big debut on TNT, and really, how often do you get a free fight card with a Mighty Mouse title fight and Eddie Alvarez? And for those who tuned in early for the prelims, there was former welterweight title challenger Tyler McGuire taking on Raimond Magomedaliev, plus Senegalese wrestling sensation Oumar Kane, otherwise known as “Reug Reug.”
ONE on TNT 1 kicks off at 8:30PM ET, with the main card going live at 10PM. Full results can be found below. Where available, the official live stream is above.
