Demetrious Johnson ONE Championship

ONE Championship has a full month planned, and it gets underway on Wednesday, April 7, with ONE on TNT I.

Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson has a chance to add another World Championship to his collection as he meets ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano "Mikinho" Moraes in the evening's top-billed matchup.

Eddie "The Underground King" Alvarez will try to take #2-ranked lightweight contender Iuri Lapicus' spot in the official ONE athlete rankings to lay claim to a shot against either Christian Lee or Timofey Nastyukhin for the ONE Lightweight World Title.

Also in action, Rodtang "The Iron Man" Jitmuangnon will bring his exciting Muay Thai stylings to the primetime audience.


And there's more on the table as well, with a fun preliminary card featuring a possible welterweight title eliminator and heavyweight "Reug Reug" Oumar Kane stepping back inside the ONE Circle.

This is one event you don't want to miss.

Before the action gets underway, ONE held a press conference with the stars of the card, and after the talking was done, they got face-to-face for a classic staredown.

Bruce Lee really did have the Midas touch when it came to training. Most people think Bruce was advanced and complicated, but he was the master of simplicity. He was not worried about doing the jump-up flip spin-around back kick. Not sure if there is one. But by the time you land, Bruce would just throw a simple kick or punch to knock you down as you landed to the ground. However, that is the point. Simplicity is often overlooked because of the coolness and the latest and greatest workout when simplicity produces the most significant effect. Super complicated does not mean superior. This is actually reverse in fact. We see super complex exercises that don’t need to be. Truthfully, if an exercise or method is not straightforward in its approach, then it probably is not good.
