Adriano Moraes Looks To Cement His Legacy At ONE On Prime Video
For Adriano Moraes, the first ONE Championship event on Amazon Prime is another chance to showcase his skills to the U.S.
Adriano Moraes already owns a win over Demetrious Johnson.
In the first ONE Championship event on TNT in 2021, he landed a knee that floored the former UFC champion.
Now, Moraes gets another opportunity to do the same – this time on Amazon Prime.
The two meet for Moraes’ title on Saturday in the first event under the new agreement. The card will stream live in the United States in primetime.
Moraes reclaimed the flyweight title in 2019 with a decision over Geje Eustaquio. He finished Johnson two years later and bested Yuya Wakamatsu this past March at ONE: X.
