ONE World Flyweight Champion Adriano Moraes is looking to prove he’s a flyweight great with a second win over Demetrious Johnson at ONE on Prime Video 1.
The two faced off at ONE on TNT 1 in 2021 in what turned out to be one of the biggest upset wins in MMA history. They’ll be playing it now on Friday, August 26 at US prime time.
Answering questions from Denise Salcedo After a press conference in Los Angeles last month, the Brazilian star was asked what it would mean for him to score a second win against ‘Mighty Mouse’.
“I think in the first game everyone saw my power. I could show everyone, ‘Who is Adriano?’ If I beat him a second time, they’ll just say, ‘Yes, this guy is strong!’ you know, like, ‘This guy has it all in MMA, he’s good, like standing, he’s good on the floor, you know? He’s a complete athlete!’ I want to show everyone that.”
Watch the interview below:
Moraes is taking Asia by storm with his unrelenting energy and talent, and he’s looking to show American fans why he deserves all the hype.
One of Moraes’ lifelong missions is to be remembered as a complete MMA fighter to rival the industry’s top dogs. So, for him to accept another potential slugfest in Mighty Mouse shows how confident he is in his toolbox to pull it off.
Adriano Moraes is ready to compete in other weight classes after Demetrious Johnson’s rematch
During a joint press conference with ONE and Amazon Prime Video at the Novo in Los Angeles, Adriano Moraes discussed his plans to compete in other weight classes after his rematch with Johnson.
‘Mikinho’ took on the best flyweights ONE Championship has to offer. The 32-year-old superstar admitted he wants to seek new challenges outside of his division to become a world two-weight champion.
“Maybe after this fight I’ll look at other weight classes. I have my Brazilian compatriots to fight for the belt. I like to challenge myself and I think I can do it. Maybe I’ll try to compete for a title of a different weight.”
First things first, but Adriano Moraes has to add a second win over Johnson to his record later this month.
