One Championship Century : one on Saturday night and the other on Sunday morning.Century doesn’t only mark the 100th time ONE has held an event, it is, in the words of CEO Chatri Sityodtong, the “greatest martial arts event of the last 100 years.”
Hyperbole aside, the event is a stunning feat. “Century” is actually two events held back-to-back over a one-day period with seven world title fights. ONE is swinging for the fences and broadcast deals with B/R Live and TNT bringing more eyeballs to the promotion than ever.
While Johnson looks to become the No. 1 contender for ONE’s flyweight title with a world grand prix victory, Angela Lee hopes to defend her atomweight crown in a highly anticipated rematch between her and women’s strawweight champion Xiong Jing Nan.

The event will be held at Ryogoku Kokugikan Arena in Tokyo, Japan.
ONE: Century is split into two cards. The first begins with preliminary matches on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET and the main card follows at 11 p.m. Those in the U.S. can watch the main card on TNT and both the main card and prelims on B/R Live.
The second card begins its prelims on Oct. 13 at 4 a.m., with the main card following at 8 a.m. You can watch on B/R Live.
