Johnson-Alvarez Set For ONE Return On August 2nd
August 2nd will see Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez returning to ONE Championship, following conflicting results in their respective debuts.
Following a second-round submission win over Yuya Wakamatsu earlier this year, Johnson will fight Tatsumitsu Wada in the second round of their flyweight Grand Prix.
If Johnson comes out successful, he will face the winner of Danny Kingad and Kairat Akhmetov’s second-round battle also set for August 2nd in Manila.
Alvarez, who suffered a shocking first round knockout of Timofey Nastyukhin, looks to bounce back in the co-main event against former ONE lightweight champ Eduard Folayang.
The former UFC and Bellator champion has only won one of his last five fights, while Folayang has lost only lost one of his last four, a submission loss to Shinya Aoki this past march.
