Johnson will represent AMC
A report suggests that the reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion will be representing AMC Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in his fights and will compete in the Brown Belt Masters 2 featherweight class. He currently weighs 154 pounds. The competition will be fierce for “Mighty Mouse,” and his main focus will be on securing a podium finish in the 34-man field, which will be quite challenging. The contest will consist of many tough Jiu-Jitsu competitors, and all of them will be over the age of 20.
The Mighty House holds an amazing record
After an amazing career in America, Johnson decided to join the Singapore-based organization, where he currently holds a fantastic MMA record of 5-1. With eight career wins through submission, which include his latest wins against Yuya Wakamatsu and Rodtang Jitmuangnon, “Mighty House” has displayed his skills effectively. Last May, he also successfully defended his championship against Adriano Moraes at One Fight Night 10.
The ONE flyweight world champion’s desire is still fiery
Currently, Johnson is non-committal about resuming his epic MMA career, but his desire to compete at the highest level is still as strong as ever. He also teased a move into the elite submission grappling ranks of ONE Championship previously, including a possible superfight with ONE Flyweight Submission Grappling World Champion Miki Musumesi.
