Demetrious Johnson To Meet Adriano Moraes In Rematch
Demetrious Johnson will get his chance for revenge against Adriano Moraes.
Moraes will share the octagon with “Mighty Mouse” Johnson for the second time in the ONE 161 main event on August 26 in Singapore.
It will be Moraes’ chance to defend his belt and create a legacy for his professional career.
They first shared the octagon in April 2021 in the ONE Flyweight Grand Prix. The Brazilian fighter earned his 19th victory by serving a knockout loss to Johnson.
After that bout, Moraes earned another outstanding victory against Yuya Wakamatsu in March of 2022. He earned a third-round submission victory, the 10th submission in his career.
Johnson had suffered the first-ever promotion loss against Moraes. He was previously on a three-fight winning streak.
After suffering defeat against Henry Cejudo in their second bout, he left the UFC. He was on an untouched victory run for 14 fights — 13 victories and one draw — before losing his title in a rematch with “Triple C” Cejudo.
Demetrious defeated all the great fighters of his generation. He served and defeated Cejudo, John Dodson, Kyoji Horiguchi, Joseph Benavidez and Ray Borg, to name a few.
No other fights are scheduled for ONE 161 yet.
