VIDEO: DJ, Alvarez, Rodtang to headline ONE event in US

The event will air on April 7.

ONE Championship is preparing for another "ground-breaking" year as the MMA promotion gears up for a United States prime-time event.

ONE will air a what it is describing as a blockbuster card via its North American partners, with the card topped by a "massive" World Title main event on April 7.

That main event will see ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes defend his crown against all-time great mixed martial artist Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.

Brazil’s Moraes has been the most dominant figure in ONE flyweight history, defeating the likes of former World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio, #2-ranked contender Danny “The King” Kingad, and #3-ranked contender and former World Titleholder Kairat “The Kazakh” Akhmetov.

North American legend Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez will return for a lightweight clash against the division’s #2-ranked contender, Moldova’s Iuri Lapicus.

After a shock debut defeat in March 2019, Alvarez roared back with a submission win over Filipino legend Eduard “Landslide” Folayang.

The Philadelphia native’s main goal is to wrap the ONE Lightweight World Championship strap around his waist, but the dangerous Lapicus could use “The Underground King’s” name to raise his own stock.

Last but not least, ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon will take on British striker Jacob Smith.
