Eddie Alvarez

ONE Championship's stacked ONE on TNT I event is a week away. The primetime debut for the martial arts organization debuts on Wednesday, April 7, on TNT with a star-studded line-up.

Four mixed martial arts bouts help round out the six-bout event, and each of the eight competitors has a well-rounded arsenal that could see the match end in the blink of an eye.

The two highly-anticipated main card bouts feature American mixed martial arts legends Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez. Johnson is vying for the ONE Flyweight World Championship against Adriano Moraes, while Alvarez is hoping to punch his ticket to a title bid against the ever-dangerous Iuri Lapicus.


But those two marquee bouts are not the only ones to be excited about. The lead card features two additional bouts that could steal the show.

On the lead card, heavyweight contenders Mehdi Barghi and "Reug Reug" Oumar Kane kick-off the event before United States Airman Tyler McGuire meets Raimond Magomedaliev in a possible welterweight title eliminator.

How will you perform at the moment of truth?

What's going to happen to you physically and emotionally in a real fight where you could be injured or killed? Will you defend yourself immediately, hesitate during the first few critical seconds of the fight, or will you be so paralyzed with fear that you won't be able to move at all? The answer is - you won't know until you can say, "Been there, done that." However, there is a way to train for that fearful day.

Bantamweights take center stage at ONE Championship's latest foray into U.S. primetime on Wednesday, April 21.

John "Hands of Stone" Lineker will meet "Pretty Boy" Troy Worthen in the main event of ONE on TNT III with a possible shot at the ONE Bantamweight World Title hanging in the balance.

The American, Worthen, is hoping to usurp Lineker's position and get the biggest win of his young career. "Pretty Boy" is a talented wrestler who has found success under the bright lights of ONE and has since returned to the United States to train at Sanford MMA.

But Lineker will be his biggest challenge yet.

This week I've asked Robert Borisch to give me a birds eye view on his marketing strategy.

Robert is the head sensei and owner of Tri-City Judo a well-established commercial judo school in Kennewick, Washington. I am very impressed with his highly successful business. Unlike BJJ, TKD, karate, and krav maga, in judo we tend to teach in community centers, YMCA's, and other not for profit outlets. So when I find a for profit judo model that is growing by leaps and bounds, it intrigues me. Below are Robert's raw and uncensored comments spoken like a true commercial martial arts school entrepreneur / owner.
