    I like this fight...but I think DJ might make it look easy.

    He hasn't made any of his opponents look easy in ONE yet...
     
  5. DJ last 3 fought were not easy, even if he dominated it was competitive. Moraes have far better grappling skills in both BJJ and wrestling than all the rest of the competition DJ ever faced.
    This is going to be the toughest test DJ ever faced in One, plus don't forget Moraes is taller than DJ, having a better reach is not going to help closing the distance.

    Good test for the goat in my opinion.

    DJ wins the fight, probably handily. Dude is starting to get older, though, not sure how much longer he can keep whooping everybody.

    No way, this is a nightmare opponent for him.

    The easiest way to beat Demetrious Johnson is to be bigger and stronger than him, and use that size to hold the fight in advantageous positions.

    Adriano Moraes is not only one of the biggest fighters DJ has ever fought, but he's one of the most skilled too.
