Rodtang vs. Demetrious Johnson Set for Stacked “ONE X” Event.

Two of combat sport’s biggest stars will go head to head in a mixed ruleset matchup where we will see a variety of Muay Thai and MMA in different rounds. This four-round spectacle will keep fans on their toes as we will see the respected greats face off in their own and each other’s primary discipline.

Rodtang is already a huge star in the combat sports world but this somewhat ventures into MMA against someone who is considered the greatest martial artist of all time might just propel him to his peak in popularity. As for “Mighty Mouse”, he will look to prove his own in the striking realm by taking on “The Iron Man”. This might just be the most intriguing match-up we have ever seen in all of fighting history.

Other fights on this “ONE X” card include Garry Tonon vs Thanh Le and Bibiano Fernandes vs John Lineker. If ONE Championship hadn’t already impressed the world throughout 2021, then they certainly will with the year closing show.

Chatri Sityodtong is changing the fight game and hardcore combat sports fans will be delighted to be seeing such unique matchups, the type of combat entertainment we would see in the days of PRIDE FC.
