Demetrious Johnson

Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson is arguably the greatest mixed martial artist ever to compete.

The Washington native not only possesses all of the tools, but his technique in each area is impeccable.

He has used those tools to capture multiple World Championships and will go for gold again when he meets ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano "Mikinho" Moraes at ONE on TNT I on Wednesday, April 7.

But what makes an all-time great?


In a feature video from ONE Championship, get a look into the day-to-day life of Johnson. Hear directly from "Mighty Mouse" on how he balances life as a husband and father as well as how he prepares for championship contests.

The top-ranked flyweight contender is also a top video game streamer. Get a peek at his set-up and hear how he connects with his gaming fans to create a friendly and supportive atmosphere away from the canvas.

The balance of life and training has made Johnson one of the sport's most highly regarded athletes. With the considerable challenge of Moraes in ONE's U.S. primetime debut on the horizon, Johnson's openness is an exciting look into the mind of a legend.

A legend that can continue to grow by winning another World Championship in a world-class martial arts organization.

ONE on TNT I will air live on TNT at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT on Wednesday, April 7.

You can be as prepared as ever and still not get the results you had wanted or expected. You can put your heart into every training session, just to lose. The truth is when you step onto the mat the numerical results are out of your control. Sometimes, as mentioned, you can train harder than you ever have, hit a "near perfect" form and still lose. Ironically other times, you can run a form that you didn't think was your strongest with a few slight missteps and still win.
