In the main event, reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes takes on 12-time Flyweight MMA World Champion Demetrious Johnson in a highly anticipated World Title rematch. “Mikinho” and “Mighty Mouse” both emerged victorious in their most recent matchups at ONE X in March — Moraes in a World Title defense against top contender Yuya Wakamatsu, and Johnson in an MMA vs. Muay Thai super-fight with ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon.

 

In the co-main event, reigning ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao puts his belt on the line against #5 bantamweight Muay Thai contender Liam Harrison. Nong-O has rattled off five-consecutive World Title defenses, most recently against Felipe Lobo at ONE X. Harrison is fresh off a Fight of the Year candidate at ONE 156, where he survived two early knockdowns to defeat Muangthai PK.Saenchai by technical knockout.

 

Also on the main card is ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon, who faces #4-ranked contender Savvas Michael in the semifinal round of the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix. Former ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion and current #2-ranked Jonathan Haggerty, who had to withdraw from the tournament due to illness, battles Amir Naseri in a World Grand Prix alternate bout.

 

Rounding out the main card are a pair of all-action heavyweight clashes, as 17-time BJJ World Champion Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida faces Kirill Grishenko and Amir Aliakbari meets Mauro Cerilli.

 

Bouts and timing are subject to change.
