ONE on TNT 1: Moraes vs. Johnson Preview

ONE Championship will land on TNT in primetime for the first time tonight with ONE on TNT 1: Moraes vs. Johnson.

The main event will feature a flyweight championship fight between champion Adriano Moraes and MMA great Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong has stated that Johnson is already the best of all time without question, so capturing a world title in another major promotion would only further strengthen Johnson’s argument for GOAT status.

Speaking of GOAT status, former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez will face Iuri Lapicus in the co-main event. Alvarez recently made headlines when he declared that if he managed to capture the ONE lightweight title, that would make him the GOAT at 155 pounds. But first, “The Underground King” will have to overcome Lapicus, who has only one loss in his professional record of 14-1.

The main card will also include a Muay Thai fight between Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Danial Williams.

ONE on TNT 1: Moraes vs. Johnson airs live tonight on TNT at 10 PM EST, 7 PM PST. from inside the indoor stadium in Singapore. You can find the card results right here on this page at the end of the event. Here’s the full lineup for tonight’s event:

ONE on TNT 1: Moraes vs. Johnson Results

The main card began with Eddie Alvarez facing Iuri Lapicus. Early in the first round, Alvarez was able to secure the takedown, but Lapicus was able to position himself where Alvarez did not have a clear and legal landing point for his punches. Alvarez attempted to land his punches in a spot that was within legal range, but failed to do so and was disqualified for his efforts. Check out below:

In the main event, Demetrious Johnson attempted to wrest the ONE flyweight title from champion Adriano Moraes. After a long process of sensations, the first round would end with Johnson on his back and Moraes controlling the action:

In the second round, Moraes would land a big uppercut on Johnson when the Mighty Mouse was coming in for a takedown. Then, in what can only be described as a remarkable feat of irony after Johnson recently argued why knees to a downed opponent should be legal in all MMA, he was defeated for the first time in his illustrious career by one knee while he was a fighter shot down. :
