On Friday night, the reigning ONE flyweight world champion, ‘Mighty Mouse’ Demetrious Johnson, successfully defended his title against his longstanding adversary, ‘Mikinho’ Adriano Moraes.In the main event of ONE Fight Night 10: Johnson versus Moraes III on Prime Video, which took place live on May 5 at 1stBank Centre in Denver, Colorado, both fighters faced off against each other for a total of five rounds of combat.In a recent video that was uploaded on Instagram by ONE Championship, Johnson can be seen practically smashing a bag of ice in between the rounds of the fight.Johnson defeated Moraes with relative ease by choosing to deploy a clinch attack that neutralised Moraes’ advantage in height and reach. This allowed Johnson to easily take care of business against Moraes. Because ‘Mighty Mouse’ maintained the action under tight and controlled control, ‘Mikinho’ had trouble finding his groove.
After hearing that Johnson had been unanimously chosen as the winner, many fans speculated that this might have been the last time they would get to watch the American legend compete. When he faced Kairat Akhmetov, a former world champion at flyweight, face to face in the centre circle, those anxieties were momentarily put to rest.Johnson is likely going to face Akhmetov in his next bout, which will most likely take place soon. Earlier in the evening, “The Kazakh” was also victorious over Reece McLaren in a match that acted as somewhat of a de facto world title eliminator.
It is now unknown whether or not Johnson will in fact make a comeback to participate in yet another battle. It is necessary for him to discuss the matter first with his wife.
