Speaking recently to the official ONE FC website, UFC legend and ONE Championship Flyweight MMA Champion Demetrious Johnson gave his prediction for the epic bout.

He said: “I think one’s better than the other in certain areas. I think Angela’s better in the overall game of mixed martial arts, but I think ‘Panda’ is better on her feet.

“At the end of the day … I think Angela beats her. I think Angela is going to use the overall game, walk her down, wrestle, get it on the ground, [and unleashed her] ground-and-pound.”

Johnson competed in the main event of the first Amazon Prime fight card, scoring a huge win against Adriano Moraes to once again become the Flyweight Champion of the promotion.

It wasn’t just Mighty Mouse who would give his take on the massive trilogy contest, with several other ONE FC fighters also revealing their picks.

Rising ONE FC star Fabricio Andrade actually tipped Jing Nan to defend her rival, saying: “This will be a very close fight. We know that Angela Lee has the advantage on the ground and Xiong Jing Nan has the advantage in striking. But Xiong Jing Nan has been evolving a lot in MMA, and I believe she has a chance to surprise once again and win this fight.”

Another former opponent of Lee, Stamp Fairtex, would also pick Jing Nan to take the win, saying: “I think Xiong will still beat Angela in the strawweight division because this is her natural weight [class] and her own belt. She definitely trains hard to defend her title. Xiong’s punches are fast and heavy. I think she can handle Angela with those strikes. I think the game will go to Xiong Jing Nan.”
