ONE Championship goes live this Wednesday night following AEW on TNT:

After AEW Dynamite signs off on Wednesday night on TNT, don’t change that channel, because you won’t be done watching the intense action.

Beginning this Wednesday night, and continuing throughout the month of April on TNT, MMA immediately follows wrestling with ONE Championship’s four-week miniseries.

ONE on TNT 1 will air live (yes, live) from Singapore Indoor Stadium beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET, 5:30 p.m. PT with undercard action on Bleacher Report’s BR Live streaming service as AEW Dynamite is airing, followed by the main card at 10 p.m. ET on TNT.

This card will be aired on a tape-delayed status to the West Coast audience at 10 p.m. PT on TNT’s Pacific Time Zone feed.

A live telecast will not be the case for ONE on TNT’s other cards.

For instance, the ONE on TNT 2 event will be prerecorded in Singapore on Thursday, April 8 for airing next Wednesday, April 14.

Let’s turn our attention back to this week’s fights, headlined by the battle for the ONE Championship Flyweight title between incumbent champion Adriano Moraes (18-3) and challenger and top-ranked contender Demetrious Johnson (30-3-1).

This fight will be a maximum of five rounds at five minutes per round to close the show.

Contender Comparison:

Heading into the main event of the evening on Wednesday, Adriano Moraes is the taller fighter at 5-foot-8, with Demetrious Johnson standing 5-foot-3.

How they got here:

Moraes has posted a 4-1 record in his last five fights, most recently scoring a unanimous decision victory over Geje Eustaquio in ONE Championship: Hero’s Ascent in 2019.

In the other corner, Demetrious Johnson has also gone 4-1 in his last five fights, defeating Danny Kingad in October of 2019 by unanimous decision during ONE Championship: Century in Tokyo.

The Tale of the Tape:

According to Tapology, Demetrious Johnson holds a 68-inch reach, with no such information for Adriano Moraes.

Prediction: Demetrious Johnson by fourth-round TKO.
