TAGUIG--Demetrious Johnson simply showed his dominance over Danny Kingad in the final of the One Flyweight Grand Prix at One: Century at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo on Sunday.

Behind early takedowns in Round 1, the former UFC veteran took control of the three-round contest en route to the unanimous decision win.

Now 3-0 under One, Johnson is now poised for a world title shot in the future.

On the other hand, Lito Adiwang introduced himself to One Championship's main roster after stunning Senzo Ikeda.

Adiwang, known for his striking, showcased his versatility as he quickly took Ikeda down and was poised for an armlock submission.

But after seeing that Ikeda was already grimacing pain in his arm, the referee decided to stop the contest at the 1:57 mark of Round 1 and declare a injury stoppage in favor of Adiwang.

In the main event of the daytime session, Angela Lee remained the One women's atomweight champion after submitting reigning One women's strawweight champ Xiong Jing Nan.

With only 12 seconds left in their five-round affair, Lee successfully forced Xiong to tap out after doing a rear naked choke on her.
