Demetrious Johnson vs Adriano Moraes Trilogy
Headlining the One Fight Night 10 card is two world class fighters, arguably Demetrious Johnson is one of the greatest fighters of all time & Adriano Moraes definitely one of the more underrated fighters right now.
Moraes shocked the world when defeating Johnson in the first but Johnson showed his greatness by outclassing Adriano Moraes for four rounds till he finished him.
However Moraes held his own in both fights just few steps behind but definitely gained Mighty Mouse’s respect.
“Adriano is a great guy, a great opponent, an amazing former world champion,” Johnson said. https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2023/05/one-fight-night-10-demetrious-johnson-surprised-immediate-adriano-moraes-trilogy
Trilogy fight I hope is competitive from start to finish compared to the first two fights. Demetrious Johnson showcases his mastery of mix martial arts as he always probably the best all-around MMA fighter of all time in my opinion while Adriano Moraes I hope makes adjustments that makes him win few rounds or a closer fight.
“To be part of the Demetrious Johnson legacy is an honor for me. I think it is for him too to be part of my legacy. I think two of the best flyweights in the world are going to collide again.” Moraes said https://www.cbssports.com/mma/news/the-unsung-legend-of-demetrious-johnson-reaches-its-climax-at-one-fight-night-10-in-trilogy-vs-adriano-moraes/
One Championship sake is Demetrious Johnson win this fight but be a great five round battle, ending the night the right way. Truly looking forward to watching this flyweight battle, honor to watch Demetrious Johnson fight as I’m always amazed and love for Adriano Moraes to gain some shine in his first fight in the United States.
Stamp Fairtex vs Anderson
Arguably one of the best woman’s fighters in the world, 2nd best atomweight fighter in the world right behind Angela Lee.
Before successful MMA career was One Championship Atomweight Muay Thai Champion before losing to Janet Todd. Most great kickboxers/ muay thai fighters sometimes struggle having successful mma career but Stamp is a different story.
Stamp Fairtex moved away from training striking and really focusing on her grappling and MMA skills. Second fight with Alyona Rassohyna can recognize the strong development in her jiu-jitsu defense and grappling skills. Fairtex vs Rassohyna is a great fight recommend watching.
Lost her fight against Angela Lee but winning a favorable matchup against Alyse Anderson (American Top Team fighter) can lead to title shot in 2023.
“I am more skilled than [Anderson] in terms of Muay Thai and kickboxing. And in the ground game, maybe I am inferior, but I think I will have the advantage and will come out on top in our striking exchanges,” said Stamp. https://blackbeltmag.com/stamp-fairtex-one-fight-night-10
“I think if I win this fight there will be an interim belt fight for me next,” Fairtiex told MMA Mania. “That’s what maybe [ONE CEO] Chatri [Sityodtong]has alluded to, but we’ll see what happens. https://www.mmamania.com/2023/5/2/23704763/stamp-fairtex-expects-interim-title-shot-with-first-u-s-win-i-want-show-everyone-this-is-stamp-one
One Championship giving her the opportunity to gain a whole new audience and become the next superstar. Setting her up with a MEGA-Fight with Angela Lee with a win.
Roberto Soldic vs Zebaztian Kadestam
One of the biggest free agents in recent years signed with One Championship instead of UFC/Bellator or PFL.
Former KSW Welterweight Champion and Middleweight Champion is making his second appearance as debut was extremely disappointing. Roberto Soldic is facing Kadestam former One Championship Welterweight Champion.
Soldic hopes to deliver in this fight, showing millions of people he’s been one of the best fighters in the world for several years now. Highly capable of finishing Kadestam as he finished UFC Middleweight Dricus Du Plessis and went to split decision with Yaroslav Amosov.
“I know that he won’t give up. He will come to fight, for sure. But it’s nothing new for me, really. I have been in so many bad positions and good positions. I’m ready for anything. I have to beat this guy. He’s in my way. I’m in good shape. No injuries now. I feel great. Let’s do it.” Soldic said with One Championship http://“I’m a complete fighter. I can do everything. I always plan to keep moving forward and destroy these guys [in front of me].”
“I’m a complete fighter. I can do everything. I always plan to keep moving forward and destroy these guys [in front of me].” Soldic said with One Championship http://“I’m a complete fighter. I can do everything. I always plan to keep moving forward and destroy these guys [in front of me].”
Kadestam is one experienced fighter even tho lost his Welterweight title is on two fight winning streak with first round finishes. Reminds me of Pride Fighter Joachim Hansen similar fighting style. Kadestam will always bring the fight and look for the finish even in the 5th round will have that right hand power.
Soldic vs Kadestam potentially can be fight or the night or a fighter is going to sleep early.
“The fight has got to end by KO. Anything else is not enough. I’m giving this fight zero percent chance of going the distance. Somebody has to sleep, and to be honest if it’s a good fight and it has to be me, I don’t give a ****.” Kadestam said https://www.onefc.com/news/somebody-has-to-sleep-zebaztian-kadestam-ready-for-all-out-war-with-roberto-soldic/
Kairat Akhmetov vs Reece Mclaren
Second fight on the prelims is wild but goes to show the depth of this card that a top five flyweight matchup is on the prelims. Great fight as styles make fights.
Kairat Akhmetov- Kazakhstan fighter is on five fight winning streak last loss was in 2018!! Dominating fighters with his Sambo/Pankration fighting style that I really appreciate watching. Dominating good fighters like Danny Kingad and Tatsumitsu Wada.
Impressive record of 29-2 at 36 years old, Continues to prove he’s one of the top 100 fighters in the world and definitely desires challenging for the One Championship Flyweight Title once more before his age catches up to him.
“I can’t just sit there and wait, so I took that fight with Reece. If it wasn’t for that fight with Johnson, I consider myself the top contender, and I think I should have fought for the title a long time ago. On May 5, I want to show that I am #1 in the rankings and worthy of a World Title fight.” Akmetov said to One Championship
Reece Mclaren is an Australian Warrior, one durable tough fighter win or lose fights hard to the end. Not the most appealing record of 16-8 but is a good fighter as he went to split decision with a younger Bibiano Fernandes, defeated Muin Gaforov, Wada, Xie Win & Gurdarshan Mangat.
“I think it’s unrecognizable [how much I’ve changed]. I think I’ve shown that I’m more diverse. I’m different. Totally different. I don’t want to bag on Akhmetov, but with all respect to him, it’s like, ‘Man, you’re still the same. He’s a little stuck in the mud. I’ll make him look more stuck in the mud this time.” Reece Mclaren https://www.essentiallysports.com/one-championship-mma-news-im-different-reece-mclaren-plans-to-showcase-evolution-in-rematch-with-kairat-akhmetov/
Reece Mclaren hopefully is intense two-three round fast paced battle. Winner potentially challenges either Demetrious Johnson or Adriano Moraes.
