The much-awaited rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Adriano Moraes will happen this weekend at ONE on Prime Video I. The stakes are high and the ONE Flyweight World Title is on the line as well.

ONE Championship stars Angela Lee and Itsuki Hirata have weighed in their takes on the showdown. Speaking to ONE Championship, the Atomweight stars gave their predictions for the fight which happens on August 26.

Hirata was split between the two fighters but was leaning towards Demetrious Johnson. The Japanese MMA star, however, feels that Adriano Moraes might have a better chance if the fight goes to the distance.

“I think DJ will win this time, but I really don’t know because the champion showed us an amazing performance in the fight with Yuya Wakamatsu at ONE X, so who knows?  Probably the fight will be left up to a decision, but I think the champion might win if it goes to a decision,” she noted.

Reigning ONE Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee, on the other hand, picked Moraes. She noted that she is a fan of both the fighters but went on to pick the current champion.

“They are amazing mixed martial artists, super well-rounded. They each have amazing skill sets, and I’m a fan of both, so it’s hard to choose. But you know what? I think that Adriano is going to take it once more,” Lee said.
