ONE Championship is in the middle of a four-week run of consecutive primetime events on TNT, which continues Wednesday night with ONE on TNT III at Singapore Indoor Stadium. The series got off to an interesting start with ONE on TNT I, where former UFC champions Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez made their returns, which ended in disappointing fashion. Johnson lost by second-round knockout to flyweight champion Adriano Moraes, while Alvarez was disqualified in his fight with Iuri Lapicus because of illegal punches. Ahead of ONE on TNT III, MMA Junkie caught up with ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong, who discussed how the TNT series is going, the possibility of Alvarez’s DQ being overturned, the potential for Johnson to get an immediate title rematch, lightweight champion Christian Lee’s success, and more. You can watch the complete interview in the video above or read below for answers to some of those topics.
