ONE Championship made their debut on Amazon Prime this weekend, and MMA News has all the results from the mix of MMA and Muay Thai bouts offered by ONE on Prime Video 1: Moraes vs. Johnson 2.
The event was headlined by the highly-anticipated rematch between ONE flyweight champion Adriano Moraes and former UFC champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. Moraes famously introduced Johnson to ONE’s unique ruleset (knees to the head of grounded opponents are legal) when he stopped “Mighty Mouse” in the second round of their 2021 fight.
The main card also included a pair of heavyweight MMA bouts. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida put his undefeated MMA record on the line against Kirill Grishenko, while Amir Aliakbari squared off with Mauro Cerilli.
In addition to MMA, the event featured a number of ONE Championship Muay Thai bouts. The promotion’s Muay Thai fights are contested in 4-ounce MMA gloves and take place in the same cage as their MMA bouts.
