ONE Championship: Demetrious Johnson thinks Rodtang beat Superlek – ‘I’m speechless’
ONE flyweight MMA champ says Rodtang controlled the distance, ‘pressured Superlek the whole time’, and had most damaging shot in Bangkok‘I love DJ but he’s way off the mark here,’ former ONE bantamweight Muay Thai title challenger Liam Harrison saysONE ChampionshipNicolas AtkinPublished: 10:42pm, 25 Sep, 2023Why you can trust SCMP
Demetrious Johnson thinks the judges got it wrong in Superlek’s blockbuster ONE Friday Fights 34 victory over Rodtang Jitmuangnon last weekend.
Superlek took a unanimous decision at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, with all three judges awarding him identical scorecards of 29-27 over the flyweight Muay Thai champ – whose title was not on the line after “The Kicking Machine” missed weight.
But ONE Championship’s flyweight MMA king Johnson – who submitted Rodtang by rear-naked choke in a special mixed rules fight in March 2022 – saw things differently.
