‘Mighty’ Demetrius Johnson (36, USA) is still running in his prime.
On the 6th (Korean time), in the main event of ‘One Fight Night 10’ held at the First Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado, USA, he defeated Adriano Moraes (35, Brazil) with a 3-0 decision at the end of the 5th round and successfully defended his flyweight title in the first round.
It was the third confrontation with Moraes. In April 2021, after being beaten by Moraes’ knee and losing by KO, giving up the top, in August of last year, he regained the belt by winning by KO with a knee.
This time, he overwhelmed Moraes with superhuman speed and activity. He wasn’t pushed back even in the clinch. The highlight of the day was the scene where he threw a flying knee into the face of 172cm Moraes, who is more than 10cm taller than himself.
Colorado is high. If you are not used to the alpine zone, you will get tired quickly. Johnson’s physical strength improved over time, while Moraes’ mobility gradually declined.
Johnson, who finished the rivalry with Moraes with a record of 2 wins and 1 loss, is ready to face the next challenger. He announced that he could retire after this game, but it seemed that he was not yet at the stage to finish his playing career.
After hearing the news that No. 2 Kairat Akhmetov (Kazakhstan) had been confirmed as the next challenger during the cage interview, Johnson laughed and shouted “Show me the money”.
This was the first American event of the One Championship. One Championship, a martial arts competition based in Southeast Asia, plans to continue targeting the US market in line with Endemic. Johnson, who is highly recognized by American fans, is expected to promote the existence and fun of One Championship with Johnson as the main event.
Johnson is a living legend. Following the UFC, he is keeping the top with his powerful power in the One Championship.
Johnson defeated Joseph Benavidez by decision in September 2012 to become the inaugural UFC flyweight champion. He made 11 successful defenses of the title before losing by decision to Henry Cejudo in August 2018.메이저놀이터
His 11 title defenses are the most consecutive title defenses in UFC history. Second place was Anderson Silva’s 10th defense.
In the One Championship, he accumulated a record of 5 wins and 1 loss in 6 matches. It is the 6th win, including the special match against Rottang. The total record is 24 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses.
Former One Championship lightweight champion Ok Rae-yoon (32, Busan Team Mad) won a 3-0 decision victory over Rowen Tynanes (32, USA) at the end of the third round.
Ok Rae-yoon, who gave away the championship belt to Christian Lee by TKO in the second round in August last year, is aiming for a title challenge again with this victory as a stepping stone.
Ok Rae-yoon’s total record was 17 wins and 4 losses, and Tainanes’ total was 11 wins and 2 losses.
