The trek across the West of America begins in Johnson’s native Washington State on 25 February, when he will meet some of his young fans in a private event at the Southwest Boys & Girls Club in Seattle.

The following day, all fans are invited to come to the Los Angeles Open Workout at the Clube LA Gym, where all three superstars will be in attendance from 2:30pm PST.

“Mighty Mouse” and “The Underground King” will continue on to the Las Vegas Open Workout on 28 February at the world-famous Xtreme Couture MMA Gym.

Like the event in The City Of Angels, this will be open to the public, and the action will begin at 7:30pm PST.

Both Johnson and Alvarez will make their debuts in the world’s largest martial arts organization on 31 March in Tokyo, Japan at ONE: A NEW ERA.

Alvarez will take on Timofey Nastyukhin in the last quarter-final match of the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix.

The winner of that contest at the Ryogoku Kokugikan will go on to face Lowen Tynanes, who booked his spot in the semi-finals with a first-round TKO of Honorio “The Rock” Banario at ONE: HERO’S ASCENT last Friday.

“Mighty Mouse” will go head-to-head with Yuya “Little Piranha” Wakamatsu in the first quarter-final bout of the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix on the same night in Tokyo.

Northcutt has not had any encounter scheduled yet, but he is expected to make his ONE bow in the coming months.
