Ringside News transcribed Meltzer’s comments. AEW is now the leader of 1FC’s weekly MMA show on TNT that starts in two weeks.

They’re going to have Demetrious Johnson; Adriano Moraes will defend his flyweight title against Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez is also fighting. There are many other things. I think there will be a Muay Thai World Cup, but every week there will be some big names and some big fights and it will be 10:00 am east, right after AEW Dynamite. “
