Now it remains to be seen how the careers of the two continue and if in the future they meet again to compete for the championship. In relation to Demetrious Johnson, he was recently talking about his retirement – he plans to say goodbye to mixed martial arts in three or four years – as well as that you do not plan to leave your current company.
«I don’t see myself going back to an American promotion. I can’t predict the future, but I’m very happy with ONE Championship. I am very happy where I am competing and I look forward to the future.
