5 ONE Championship Fights That Have To Happen in 2020
There’s a lot of buzz surrounding ONE Championship and that’s because the promotion is entering their biggest year yet and the fights that can be made is honestly mouth watering so I’m going to list my 5 fights that I think we will see this year. Consider this as fights I want and I think we will see in 2020.
5) Demetrious Johnson Vs. Adriano Moraes
This fight has already been announced hence why its fifth on the list but I do still have it on the list as it’s a fight I really want to see this year. Adriano Moraes has been the ONE Flyweight champion since January of last year and hasn’t defended the belt once however he was a previous champion. This should be a fantastic fight and it will be Moraes’ toughest fight yet but it won’t be an easy task for Johnson either as he tries to dethrone the flyweight king in Moraes.
4) Rodtang Vs. Superlek
I think this is likely to happen in 2020 and it does make sense. Superlek is one of the best Muay Thai fighters on the planet - that isn’t an exaggeration. Superlek is one of the very best strikers on the planet and a fight against Rodtang would allow him to put his skills to the rest. Rodtang is a highly skilled Muay Thai Flyweight and he has it all in his arsenal. I want Rodtang to remain active this year and I think this fight makes a lot of sense for him however I also want to see him try and capture more gold; the flyweight kickboxing championship but beating Ilias Ennahachi is no easy task. Anyway, I do want to see Rodtang Vs. Superlek - it’s a big fight for both men.
3) Eddie Alvarez Vs. Shinya Aoki III
These two have fought in 2008 and 2012 and since it’s been over a decade since their first encounter, let’s do the trilogy. The two are one a piece and since both men are in ONE, it just makes sense. Alvarez wants a title shot and I’m very interested in seeing Christian Lee Vs. Eddie Alvarez but Alvarez needs at least another win before getting into title contention.
2) Angela Lee Vs. Stamp Fairtex
Now that Stamp Fairtex has entered MMA, she wants more gold despite already having the kickboxing and Muay Thai belt in her locker, and she’s ready to defend her Muay Thai title against Janet Todd next month. Lee isn’t an easy fight for anybody and even though I do want to see a third fight with Xiong Jingnan in the near future, a fight with Fairtex would be something I really want to see and it gives Fairtex a chance to winning a third belt. This is a fantastic fight and something that just needs to happen. Being on Lee Vs. Fairtex in 2020!
1) Aung La N Sang Vs. Brandon Vera II (Heavyweight)
This is a fight we seen in 2019, Aung La N Sang won however this was at light heavyweight. This rematch should take place at heavyweight as it gives Aung La N Sang a chance of getting something from this fight against Brandon Vera. If Sang wins this, he’s not only middleweight champion, he’s not only light heavyweight champion but he’s also heavyweight champion! This is one of the biggest fights ONE can make in 2020 and it’s a brilliant fight we’ve got to see!
