In the sport of mixed martial arts, Demetrious Johnson has almost certainly accomplished all of the goals that may be set for himself.Johnson, who is 36 years old and the reigning ONE flyweight world champion, is well aware that he would rather devote some of his attention to aspects of his life that are unrelated to mixed martial arts (MMA).Johnson heeded the guidance of the late, great Kobe Bryant even though he was well aware that his reign at the sport’s pinnacle will eventually come to an end. Kobe Bryant passed away in 2010. The basketball great once had a conversation with Johnson, and it was during that time that Bryant discussed his ideas with Johnson in contexts other than games.
Johnson, who was one of the subjects of the ALL ACCESS: ONE Fight Night 10 Vlog, claimed that he was partly impressed by how Bryant transferred his competitive drive on the court into a career in business. Johnson was one of the subjects of the vlog.According to Demetrious Johnson:
“You see somebody who is at the top of their game, and he isn’t worried about basketball,” the coach said. He said something to the effect of, “It’s my passion, and it’s what’s gotten me to this point, but you need to start thinking about the game other than fighting,” and I quote: “It’s my passion, and it’s what’s gotten me to this point.” And that’s where I am in my professional life right now.”
Mighty Mouse was introduced as an option:
“I’m f 36 years old and I have three kids, you know you’ve got to start thinking about that,” she said.
Even though Johnson is scheduled to defend his world title against Adriano Moraes at ONE Fight Night 10: Johnson vs. Moraes III on Prime Video, the all-time great has already developed routes that would guarantee him a constant source of revenue outside of the circle. These outlets include acting as a commentator for ONE Fight Night and hosting a podcast.
Johnson is involved in a number of other commercial endeavours, in addition to the rapidly expanding channel for video games that he hosts on YouTube called Mighty Gaming.Despite this, he still has some unfinished business to attend to within the circle concerning Moraes.
Both Johnson and Adriano Moraes’ past two fights ended in stunning knockouts, and both combatants want nothing more than to put an end to their bitter rivalry this coming Friday at the 1stBank Centre in Colorado, which will be completely sold out.
All Prime Video customers in North America will have access to a live stream of the event at no additional cost. ONE Fight Night 10 is the first on-site event held by ONE Championship in the United States.
