Demetrious Johnson hinted retirement

Johnson is arguably one of the most accomplished athletes in combat sports after a long and successful career in both UFC and ONE.

Back in September 2012 he  defeated Joseph Benavidez via split decision to become the inaugural UFC flyweight champion.

Johnson then defended the strap eleven times until he lost it to Henry Cejudo via split decision at UFC 227 in 2018.

His last MMA fight was a successful ONE title defense against Adriano Moraes.
