ONE Feature | Demetrious Johnson’s Inspirational Rise To Greatness

12-time Flyweight World Champion Demetrious Johnson had to overcome incredible obstacles to become the living legend he is today. A young Johnson endured abuse at the hands of his stepfather while looking after his hearing-impaired mother and mentally-ill brother, and his entire family struggled to make ends meet. But DJ was determined to make the most of himself, and worked tirelessly to ensure a better life for his loved ones, balancing a competitive career with a factory job to help pay the bills. Now regarded as one of the greatest martial artists of all time, Johnson will look to make his mark in ONE Championship, beginning with his long-awaited debut against Japanese striking sensation Yuya Wakamatsu at ONE: A NEW ERA in Tokyo.
