The former UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (30-3-1) needed less than 12 months to get to the top of the mountain at his new home – ONE Championship.

“Mighty Mouse” is the rightful and new owner of the ONE FC flyweight belt following his victory at the ONE Championship Flyweight Grand-Prix. Johnson, 33, defeated Danny Kingad via UD in the final matchup of the tournament.

“ONE Championship: Century” took place yesterday in Tokyo, Japan with DJ and Kingad co-headlining the event. The former freestyle wrestler expectedly dominated his opponent in the ground game. DJ tried a guillotine and armbar attempt but Kingad desperately survived the onslaught. The new champion didn’t let Kingad get e rest as he was always the one dictating the tempo of the bout.

As the round went on, the Philipino fighter started gassing out and Johnson excellent ground and pound. The final round was all-in for Kingad, as he managed to land some good punches, but “Mighty Mouse” responded with good boxing as well. To cap off a clinical three-round performance, DJ secured another takedown and controlled his opponent until the final bell.
