Leave it to ONE to just to the craziest stuff ever. They just announced Demetrious Johnson vs Rodtang in a special rules match. That’s right, a special rules match. For those who don’t know, Demetrious is a consensus top ten fighter ever, and Rodtang is arguably the most dangerous Muay Thai fighter on the planet, so the fact that they’re facing off in MMA is completely insane. Check out the special rules.
So basically Demetrious is gonna have to survive a round of Muay Thai vs Rodtang before he can try to take this fight to the ground, where he’ll have a clear advantage. I know a round doesn’t sound like much, but against a guy like Rodtang, it’s a freaking eternity. It would be like if you taped a bunch of hamburgers to your nipples and tried to go five minutes in a tiger cage without being eaten. You’d be bleeding out through your anus within 30 seconds. But, none of us are Demetrious Johnson, so I guess this situation is a little different.
Although I’m still ecstatic for this, I can’t help but with it happened in DJ’s prime. He’s old now and nowhere close to what he once was, which makes me fear that his sweet bald head is gonna get kicked back to Spokane when he gets in there with Rodtang. When Mighty Mouse was in his prime, he had a knack for beating guys at what they were best at. He took down John Dodson, an elite wrestler, about 57 times. He fought Wilson Reis, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion, and decided to submit him just because he could. So that version of DJ probably would have knocked out Rodtang just for fun, but the version we’re dealing with right now might not last a minute, unfortunately.
