ONE Championship has just announced that newly signed ONE Championship athletes Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, 32, of Kirkland, Washington, United States and Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez, 34, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States will be in Singapore. They will attend the “ONE: Heart of the Lion” and 2018 Global Martial Arts events.
“It is with great honor and pleasure that I share with you all that our newest ONE Championship athletes Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez will be in town for the ‘ONE: Heart of the Lion’ press conference here in Singapore,” ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong stated. “They are also invited to participate in all the festivities surrounding the 2018 Global Martial Arts Summit and ‘ONE: Heart of the Lion.’ I know that we all can’t wait to meet and speak with DJ and Eddie, and this is the perfect chance for everyone to get to know them better.”
Both Johnson and Alvarez, along with other notable individuals in the global martial arts industry, will be special guests of ONE Championship to attend the summit, gala dinner and awards ceremony of 2018 Global Martial Arts. They will attend the press conference for “ONE: Heart of the Lion” at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center on November 7, 2018 and the fight night at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on November 9, 2018.
In the main event of “ONE: Heart of the Lion,” reigning ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes of Brazil will take on ONE Interim Bantamweight World Champion Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon of the Philippines in a highly-anticipated World Champion vs World Champion super-bout.
A former UFC Flyweight Champion with a professional record of 27 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw, Johnson is considered the best MMA fighter in the world pound-for-pound. With a highly-technical style and world-class skills, he has dominated his division for the past six years and captured the flyweight world title and since 2012, he ran up a win streak of 13 bouts.
Alvarez is multiple-time world champion who has competed for the world’s top mixed martial arts promotions. The experience he has gathered over a stellar 15 year professional career so far is beyond impressive with wins over some of the biggest names in the sport.
The most notable victories of Alvarez have come against the likes of Roger Huerta, Shinya Aoki, Gilbert Melendez, Anthony Pettis, Rafael Dos Anjos, and most recently Justin Gaethje. Meanwhile, here is Alvarez talking about his move from the UFC to ONE Championship:
