Feb 26, 2019, 11:58 AM

There aren’t many fighters in MMA better than Demetrious Johnson.

The man known as Mighty Mouse dominated the UFC’s bantamweight division until a controversial decision on Aug. 4, 2018, and now he’s embarking on a new path. The 32-year-old out of Parkland was traded from the UFC to ONE Championship in October, making Johnson the clear top star for the up-and-coming promotion.

Ahead of Johnson’s first fight for ONE on March 31 in Tokyo on the ONE Championship 93: A New Era event, he dropped by the 710 ESPN Seattle studios to talk with Bob Stelton. Watch the attached video as Johnson discusses his career, new promotion and how much longer he plans to fight.
