Twenty-four events will air live on TNT starting from the beginning of 2019. The TV deal will go into the effect on January 1, 2019.
Other Turner digital platforms, like B/R, are also included as the part of the deal. But according to the sources, a reality show is in works too! The first event is set for January 19, 2019, in Jakarta, Indonesia.
ONE Championship made so many outstanding moves during the last few months. Everything started with signing the former UFC Lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez. Then the promotion traded Ben Askren for the former eleven-time UFC Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.
