Johnson-Alvarez To Headline ONE Grand Prix Tourneys

Looking to make the most of their new signings, ONE Championship has announced both a flyweight and a lightweight Grand Prix Tournament.

Following the trade for Demetrious Johnson and the signing of Eddie Alvarez, ONE has announced both fighters as the cornerstone of both tournaments.

“It has always been a dream of mine to actually compete in Asia in a world grand prix,” Johnson said on Wednesday. “The biggest thing that you can expect from me for coming over here to compete in Asia is that I’ll do my best, I am taking no shortcuts.”

“It was in Asia where I made a name for myself and started my career,” Alvarez said. “Everything has come full circle for me. I can’t say how excited and grateful I am to be part of the ONE Championship family. This is where true martial arts lives.”

While the brackets have yet to be released, they will be released within the next few weeks.
