Mighty Mouse, Alvarez back for ONE: Dawn of Heroes

Demetrious Johnson locked for ONE: Dawn of Heroes.

After two spectacular debuts in Japan (one more than the other) two of ONE Championship’s biggest recent signings will be back for its next event in Manila.

The promotion today announced former UFC greats Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez have been booked for ONE: Dawn of Heroes in Manila on 2 August.

In a ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix semi-final round, American sensation Demetrious Johnson takes on Tatsumitsu Wada of Japan.

Johnson made his ONE Championship debut last March when he took on Yuya Wakamatsu.

“Mighty Mouse” overcame a spirited effort from his opponent to win by submission in the second round, advancing to the tournament semi-finals. Now, another Japanese warrior in Wada awaits.

Former UFC lightweight champion Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez returns to action against former ONE lightweight champion Eduard “Landslide” Folayang.

Alvarez hit a stumbling block in his debut when he ran into Russian knockout artist Timofey Nastyukhin. Now Alvarez is on the comeback trail and will need to defeat Filipino icon Folayang if he hopes to reinvigorate his chances at the ONE title.
