Johnson captured the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix title late in 2019, scoring a victory over Danny Kingad in the finals. He also bested Yuya Wakamatsu and Tatsumitsu Wada in the event.

Overall, Johnson is 30-3-1 and held the UFC belt through a record-breaking number of title defenses. He lost it in 2018 to Henry Cejudo – his only defeat in his last 18 fights.

Moraes moved back into the role of ONE flyweight champion when he bested Geje Eustaquio via decision last January. He owns a record of 18-3 overall, with all three defeats coming via split decision.

ONE Championship: Reign of Dynasties takes place April 11 from Chongqing in China. The Moraes vs. Johnson bout is the only one announced as of this time.
