“Wonder Boy” was quick to add that he has always been in awe of Johnson’s all-around abilities, and he cited the American’s title-winning performance against Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes at ONE on Prime Video 1 as an example of why he is considered the best to ever do it.

“DJ impressed me a lot in his last fight. He’s a guy who already has a long history in MMA. He was coming from a loss to Adriano Moraes, who is a very big guy for the division, and I even believed that Adriano would beat the DJ again. But the way the DJ won impressed me a lot. And that just proves he’s still on top,” he said.

Andrade has been nothing short of incredible inside the Circle. He secured a shot at Lineker’s much-coveted World Title by putting “Pretty Boy” Kwon Won Il to sleep inside 62 seconds ONE 158 this past June – his third consecutive knockout in ONE.
