ONE Championship’s Amazon Prime debut is not going according to plan so far.
The Singapore-based MMA promotion is set for its first event to be streamed on Amazon Prime with ONE on Prime Video 1 taking place Friday in Singapore.
The event is headlined by a flyweight title rematch between current champion Adriano Moraes and Demetrious Johnson.
However, as many as nine fighters failed to pass their hydration tests at Thursday’s official weigh-ins.
That includes Moraes, who along with the other fighters who failed, have until 3 a.m EST (3 p.m. local time) Friday to pass their hydration tests and make the weight.
The hydration test window will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. local time.
ONE Hydration Tests
ONE Championship does weigh-ins differently from other organizations.
Their weigh-in system requires fighters to pass a hydration test which comes with a requirement of a urine specific gravity value of 1.0250 or lower.
Moraes notably came in at 1.0288 and was not allowed to weigh in as a result.
Some fighters like Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Sherzod Kabutov didn’t even provide a hydration sample, with the former eventually pulling out due to illness.
