ONE Championship flyweight titleholder Adriano Moraes is willing to run it back with Demetrious Johnson.

Moraes knocked out the former UFC champion in the second round of their ONE title fight earlier in April and became the first person to finish Johnson in a professional bout.

The Brazilian was a massive underdog for the contest, and he believes Johnson's accomplishments warrant a rematch.

"Right now, I'm going to think about what I'm going to do in the future," Moraes told MMA Junkie Radio. "I know Demetrious Johnson is the GOAT, the greatest of all time. I think if the company thinks he deserves a rematch, of course we're going to give a rematch to him."

He added: "Moraes versus Johnson 2. I think it makes sense. He deserves it."

Johnson seems less keen on an immediate rematch, saying last week he doesn't deserve a second shot but plans to work his way up to another title opportunity.

Johnson, who held the UFC flyweight belt for six years, is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters of all time.

Moraes has been the ONE flyweight champion on three different occasions, capturing the title for the first time in 2014.
