Demetrious Johnson To Battle Adriano Moraes For ONE Flyweight Championship In April

ONE Championship announced on Monday that Demetrious Johnson would return to face the promotion’s Flyweight Champion, Adriano Moraes on their April 11th card in China.

Johnson has been on a 3-0 run since entering ONE Championship. Most recently he went to a decision victory over Danny Kingad, winning a 135 pound tournament.

Moraes is a two-time ONE Championship Flyweight Champion. He won the interim belt in 2017, prevailing over Kairat Akhmetov. He went on to stop Danny Kingad within a round to make his first defence.

Moraes dropped the belt in a split decision fight to Deje Eustaquio in 2018, although avenged his loss in early 2019, getting back his belt.

Despite being held at what is traditionally known as bantamweight (135 pounds), the belt is known as the Flyweight Championship.

The championship fight is the sole bout announced so far for ONE Championship: Reign of Dynasties.
