Rodtang, originally from Thailand, started training at the age of eight to help his family financially. Rodtang will face Johnson on March 26.
Rodtang has been in over 319 fights and is still younger than the vast majority of his peers, so this double-booking-laden scenario is nothing new to him.
ONE X is the perfect vehicle to introduce Rodtang to a new audience, putting him in the ring with a well-known and beloved American athlete. Additionally, the format allows each man to showcase their individual strengths, ideally elevating both athletes in the public eye.
Demetrious Johnson vs. Rodtang – A Commendable Fight
ONE Championship deserves credit for breaking the pattern, as many UFC competitors are set to follow in the industry Goliath’s footsteps. Tournament matchups have already taken place in other major organizations, such as ONE, and super fights have become more common.
Applause is due for turning the wheels on a single idea in less than ideal circumstances around the world. The significance of a historic event like ONE X cannot be overstated.
Could this be the start of a revolutionary trend in which companies are made to think differently? It is possible. Expect plenty of fireworks from the circle when fight fans enter the figurative time machine on March 26, 2022.
