ONE flyweight world champion and future MMA Hall of Famer Demetrious Johnson is amped for his main event fight at ONE Fight Night 10. This is for good reason, as 'Mighty Mouse' will be headlining ONE Championship's inaugural live event in front of an American crowd.
Across the Circle from him will former world champ Adriano Moraes in perhaps the most anticipated trilogy bout in the promotion's history. One can even make the argument that it's the most high-profile rubber match in the division's history.
Both Demetrious Johnson and Adriano Moraes had a win over each other and held a knockout over each other - the first men to do so in each other's respective careers. In a recent Instagram post, 'DJ' shared how much fans in Broomfield, CO, are anticipating his bout with 'Mikinho':
"ayyyyeee chea well damn!!! #passion #mma #onefightnight10"
With a total of three world title fights across as many different martial arts and a long list of top-level ONE fighters on the card, ONE Fight Night 10 is shaping up to be the organization's biggest show ever. It's no surprise that the show is already sold out as early as now.
