https://www.onefc.com/news/dj-vs-rodtang-two-world-title-fights-announced-for-one-x/
Anyone else excited for this fight?

ONE Championship announced a special fight last week between Muay Thai legend Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon and former UFC Flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.

The match will be 4 alternating rounds of Muay Thai and MMA.

Any predictions? I think if Rodtang comes out heavy in the first round and gets a clean shot on DJ then he'll be well away. If it goes to round 2 and then 4 Rodtang will seriously struggle with the grappling.

Holy cow! I've never seen Rodtang before. He's unreal. He stands in there like a heavyweight, and it looks like he can't be hurt! What a fun guy to watch fight. He controls the ring, the tempo.

DJ's grappling and athleticism is awesome. His striking didn't look nearly as good. This will be a fun matchup to see.

I agree, Brian. Also, this will be a fun fight or the fastest KO in history.

Rodtang's great fun to watch! He showboats a lot but backs it up with a solid chin and great striking. Plus he seems like a really decent guy outside the ring.

Rodtang reminds me a lot of Cung Le; and Cung Le was one crafty bulldog.
