ONE Championship Outlines Future Plans Ahead Of Johnson Vs. Moraes 3

On May 3rd, 2023, Chatri Sityodtong, the CEO of ONE, outlined the organization’s plans during their ONE Fight Night 10: Demetrious Johnson vs Adriano Moraes 3 presser.

The upcoming card features a trilogy between Johnson and Moraes. In chief support, Rodtang Jitmuangnon defends his belt against Edgar Tabares, while Mikey Musumeci faces Osamah Almarwai.

Not only is the organization set to feature in the US for the first time on May 5th, 2023, but there were other notable things in store for the fans.

Sityodtong confirmed that the winner of the upcoming atomweight fight between Stamp Fairtex and Alyse Anderson would compete for the interim title.

Ham Seo Hee, who is ranked number 2, had been given the opportunity after her impressive victory over Itsuki Hirata.

“I don’t know if people know, but the winner of Alyse versus Stamp is going to get a title shot, the [ONE] Interim Atomweight World Title in mixed martial arts. So, it’s a big-stakes, high-stakes fight,” Sityodtong

Sityodtong also made an announcement about the signing of Takeru Segawa, the multiple K-1 World Champion, who will face Jitmuangnon. 

“That is probably the biggest kickboxing fight in a few decades. Obviously, Tenshin and Takeru was a big fight, but I think Takeru and Rodtang is literally going to be the biggest fight in decades for kickboxing. 

“It’s going to blow up the whole world. A hundred percent, we’re going to go to Japan with it. A hundred percent, it will be an amazing sellout. We’re actually discussing maybe doing it at Saitama [Super Arena], a 20,000-seater,” Sityodtong

With that being said, May 5th cannot come soon enough.
