Demetrious Johnson just lost via TKO. It’s the first time the pound-for-pound great has been finished in his mixed martial arts career.
In the second round of his ONE Championship fight against Adriano Moraes, Johnson was caught with a beautiful uppercut that dropped him, before Moraes followed a scramble with a picture-perfect knee to the downed Johnson. In ONE Championship, knees to a downed opponent are legal.
Check out the brutal finish in the videos below:
