Fabricio Andrade (25, Brazil) wants to completely change his difficult life by climbing to the top of Asia’s largest organization, ‘ONE Championship’.
‘ONE Fight Night 7’ will be held on the 25th at Lumpini Stadium (capacity: 5,000) in Bangkok, Thailand. The main event is the mixed martial arts bantamweight championship match between Andraji, the first in the official ranking, and John Lineker (32, Brazil), who is second in the official rankings.
In an interview on the official One Championship website on January 31st, Andraji said, “Nothing will change with a rematch. He is confident he can knock out Lineker one more time.”
The ONE Fight Night 7 main card will be scheduled to be watched live on the global OTT service ‘Amazon Prime Video’ from 8:00 pm on the 24th in New York, USA.
In October of last year, Andraji rose from second place to first place in the One Championship rankings after the first leg against then-champion Lineker. Lineker, who lost the throne due to a weigh-in failure, fell to second place.
Although the title fight itself was invalidated due to an attack in the 3rd round where Andraj hit Lineker’s vitals, he was recognized as the strongest bantamweight division of the One Championship with a dominant fight until the accident.
However, instead of the title match, Andraji cited Kwon Won-il (27) and his victory in the challenger match in June last year as the best memory for 2022, and furthermore, as a mixed martial artist.
1 minute and 2 seconds into the match, Andraji knocked out Kwon Won-il with a body kick. It was six consecutive wins in mixed martial arts after debuting at the One Championship in 2020.
Andraji, who was ranked 4th, said, “I got a bonus of 50,000 dollars (about 62 million won) (aside from the fight fee) for defeating Kwon Won-il, who was ranked 2nd in the bantamweight division. As he got better financially, everything in his life started to improve,” he recalled. 스포츠토토
“I can afford to invest in my mixed martial arts career. It was a very important step to improve his skills,” he explained why defeating Kwon Won-il was the best moment in a fighter’s life.
The results of investing the money received from Kwon Won-il in personal development appeared immediately. “I blocked every attack. It was on the verge of ending (unless it was a foul). Lineker, who was greatly scolded, knows who will be the champion in the end.”
“The second game is over within two rounds at the most. I will definitely knock you down this time.” Andrazi assured me that 10 minutes would be enough to take down former champion Lineker.
