one fc belt ONE Championship

ONE Championship has made headlines in recent months by acquiring all sorts of name talent, from former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez to former longtime UFC flyweight titleholder Demetrious Johnson to up-and-coming star Sage Northcutt.

Now, fans who wondered how they’ll be able to follow some of their favorite fighters going forward will have a chance to see them on U.S. television.

The Singapore-based promotion has come to terms on a three-year deal to air events on Turner Sports properties. MMA Fighting confirmed an initial report by ESPN on Tuesday.

ONE will air 24 live events on the B/R Live streaming service, with taped events and other shoulder programming on TNT.

The first event will air Jan. 19 from Jakarta, Indonesia. While fights have not been formalized yet for the company’s American stars, the ESPN report indicated Northcutt will fight on a Feb. 22 Singapore card; Johnson will debut on March 31 in Tokyo; and Alvarez will appear on either the February or March event.
