ONE: Adriano Moraes Retains Flyweight World Title
With Shocking Knockout of Demetrious Johnson

April 8, 2021 – Singapore: ONE Championship™ (ONE), Asia's largest global sports media property, returned to U.S. prime time with “ONE on TNT I” live from the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The card featured a pair of ONE Super Series all-striking matches and four mixed martial arts fights, including a historic battle for the ONE Flyweight World Title.

In the main event, reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano "Mikinho" Moraes shocked the world with a second-round knockout of mixed martial arts legend and ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Champion Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson.

Moraes utilized his height and reach advantage as he circled Johnson from the outside. Johnson tried to close the distance, but Moraes caught the challenger with an uppercut and knee before completing the stunning second-round finish with a barrage of ground strikes. It was the first knockout loss of Johnson’s storied career.

The co-main event between multiple-time Lightweight World Champion Eddie "The Underground King" Alvarez and #2-ranked lightweight contender Iuri Lapicus ended in controversial fashion. After a brief grappling exchange, the action was halted after the referee made the determination that Alvarez had landed illegal strikes to the back of the head, resulting in a red card and subsequent disqualification.
