Shinya Aoki will be back in action at ONE on TNT Part IV. The event is being broadcast on April 28th and the former lightweight champion has been matched with UFC veteran Sage Northcutt.

The news was broken by veteran journalist Ariel Helwani this evening:

Aoki (46-9-0-1) is coming off a win over James Nakashima at ONE: ‘Unbreakable’. The Japanese submission specialist has won three in a row since losing his title to Christian Lee in 2019.

Northcutt (11-3) left the UFC on a three fight winning streak but was brutally knocked out by Cosmo Alexandre on his ONE Championship debut in 2019 and has not fought since. He will be dropping down to lightweight for this contest which will be broadcast by TNT in the US.
