The former UFC flyweight champion gets a second crack at the ONE flyweight champion on Friday night
ONE Championship makes its debut on Amazon Prime Video with a fight card heavy on action. Flyweight champion Adriano Moraes vs. Demetrious Johnson 2 headlines an event that also features the semifinals of the flyweight Muay Thai Grand Prix.
Moraes (20-3) silenced doubters by defeating the former UFC flyweight champion, considered among the greatest fighters of all time, in April 2021. Johnson was relatively competitive against the larger Moraes in the opening round of their first fight. A flush counter uppercut dropped Johnson in Round 2 and a flush knee on the ground knocked him out. Moraes subsequently defended his title against Yuya Wakamatsu. Johnson (30-4-1) defeated Rodtang Jitmuangnon, a veteran of 320 Muay Thai fights and ranked amongst the best in the world, in a special mixed rules match.
The ONE on Prime Video 1 undercard features two semifinal bouts in the flyweight Muay Thai Grand Prix. Nong-O Gaiyanghadao vs. Liam Harrison and Jitmuangnon vs. Savvas Michael are expected to be impactful, violent affairs. An alternate bout pitting Superlek Kiatmoo9 vs. Walter Goncalves is also scheduled. Multiple-time jiu-jitsu world champion and International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) Hall of Famer Marcus Almeida continues his foray into mixed martial arts against a more experienced MMA fighter in Kirill Grishenko.
