ONE Championship to Air in United States on TNT Network

If you were scratching your head in wonder as to why Asia-based promotion ONE Championship signed Sage Northcutt, Eddie Alvarez and Demetrious Johnson, well, wonder no more.

The promotion is going to be airing events on TNT in the United States.

Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn’t, but while we were all sucking on the UFC’s pay-per-view and FOX Sports teat, the broadcast industry was changing. Nowadays, it’s becoming more and more about digital streaming platforms, and the sports content they can offer. So by offering up some heretofore unseen MMA flavor to the domestic consumer, TNT has made their broadcast rights that much more valuable.

Anyway, here’s ESPN:

ONE Championship is coming to America.

The Asia-based promotion has signed a three-year broadcast deal with Turner Sports, sources told ESPN.

The deal, which goes into effect on Jan. 1, calls for 24 events to air live on B/R Live, Turner’s digital platform. The partnership is expected to be announced in the coming days.

In addition to the live events, Turner will air shoulder programming and taped events on TNT and there is also a reality show in the works, as well, according to sources.

The first event is scheduled for Jan. 19 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

ONE Championship Coming To TNT

ONE Championship continues to make headlines as it wraps up its 2018 fight campaign, landing a three-year broadcast deal that will put the Singapore-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion into stateside homes by way of TNT, with a portion of its 24 upcoming shows streaming on B/R Live.

That’s according to a report from ESPN, which has the first event under the new agreement taking place on Jan. 19 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Recent additions to the ONE roster include UFC imports Sage Northcutt, Eddie Alvarez, and Demetrious Johnson, who are all tentatively scheduled for their in-cage debuts at some point in February or March.

MMA fans have already been preparing to find their favorite fighters in different places, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is leaving the FOX family and hooking up with ESPN, also in January (more on that here).

The live and free events streaming on the official ONE app are likely to be blacked out for those folks who live under the TNT umbrella of coverage. In addition, it is not yet known if the overseas cards will air live at the wee hours of the morning or during prime time on tape delay.
