DJ Ready For ONE: Dawn Of Heroes Even With No Master In His Corner
Ahead of ONE: Dawn Of Heroes, where Demetrious Johnson will face Tatsumitsu Wada in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix semifinals, we caught up with the former UFC flyweight champion.
During our chat, we spoke about his ONE debut against Yuya Wakamatsu in Tokyo at ONE: A New Era, facing Wakamatsu’s teammate Wada Friday night in Manila, bringing new blood into the ONE flyweight scene and not having his long term coach Matt Hume in his corner again.
“It’s unfortunate. Sometimes I feel like I’m not able to fight to my full blown potential, but you know what, I’ve accomplished a lot of things in my career so far. So this is an evolution of an athlete, not having you master in your corner.”
ONE: Dawn Of Heroes goes down Friday night at the Mall Of Asia Arena, in Manila Philippines.
