These two superstars initially met at ONE on TNT I back in April 2021, as Johnson challenged Moraes for the ONE Flyweight World Title.

That evening, Moraes shocked fans around the globe when he knocked out the MMA GOAT with a knee to the head in the second round of their main event showdown.

That marked the first and only time “Mighty Mouse” has been finished in his 15-year professional career.

The complete opposite happened when these two competitors met in their rematch at ONE on Prime Video 1 this past August.

Following three-and-a-half rounds of breathless action, Johnson stunned “Mikinho” with a cross and then knocked out the dazed Brazilian with a flying knee against the Circle Wall late in the fourth stanza.

With that victory, the American captured the ONE Flyweight World Title and became a 13-time MMA World Champion. Moreover, it marked the first and only time Moraes has been finished in his 11-year career.

With their head-to-head series now tied 1-1, these men will write the third and final chapter of their storied rivalry to truly determine the best flyweight MMA fighter on the planet.

Fans who are interested in attending ONE’s inaugural United States event can sign up for priority access to the ticket pre-sale.

Stay tuned to for more news about ONE on Prime Video 10.
