MANILA, Philippines—Demetrious Johnson is set for his first World title bout in ONE Championship as he takes on reigning flyweight champion Adriano Moraes in the main event of the inaugural ONE Infinity 1.

The two will headline a massive event that could include three World title bouts and Super Fights on April 10 at Istorya Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia.


The first card of ONE Infinity series, which the organization is introducing this year, was originally scheduled at Chongqing, China on April 11 but the promotion decided to move the card to Indonesia due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“It is my pleasure to introduce ONE Infinity Series, the world’s apex brand for martial arts events,” said ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong. “ONE Infinity Series is a cut above anything available anywhere on the planet.”


“Comprising the biggest events of the year, these blockbusters represent the very best ONE Championship has to offer in terms of world championship, talent, star power, martial arts skill, entertainment value, and historical importance.”

ONE also released its initial 2H 2020 starting with the King of the Jungle card on Feb. 28 at Singapore Indoor Stadium.

There will also be three cards in the Philippines including ONE Infinity 2 on May 29, Aug. 14, and Dec. 11.
