ONE Championship makes it way to Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to deliver ONE on Prime Video 3: Lineker vs. Andrade. This is the promotion’s third event for Prime Video hosting this most recent event outside of Singapore for the first time in years. Tonight, will feature the 11 fights in various disciplines with 3 championship matches the cap off the main card.
John Lineker (35-9) shocked ONE fans around the world when he dethroned long time ONE Featherweight Champion Bibiano Fernandes earlier this year. Standing at just 5 feet and 3 inches, Lineker has always made up for his smaller stature with his powerful fists generating 17 knockouts over his illustrious career. Due to an unsuccessful attempt to make championship weight, Lineker had to vacate the title and is no longer eligible to win the championship regardless of the outcome. Despite the news, Lineker looks to put the weight miss behind him and show that if he isn’t the featherweight champ then neither will Fabricio de Andrade (8-2). Coming off of 3 first round knockouts in a row, Andrade has also shown he can hit just as hard as the former champ. Even though his opponent missed weight, Andrade must stay focused and win before he can declare himself the ONE Featherweight Champion. With both fighters undefeated under the ONE banner, each fighter is looking to keep their record intact in the tonight’s main event.
The co-main event will also feature two fighters that are undefeated since joining ONE Championship. The fast rising Sinsamut Klinmee has turned many heads with his knockouts over Nieky Holzken and Liam Harrison. With just those two wins under his belt, the matchmakers felt like he was ready for his shot at the ONE Lightweight Muay Thai World Title against Regian Eersel. Eersel has spent his entire ONE career fighting as a kickboxer. He’s gone an even more impressive 7-0 with wins against Brad Riddell, Anthony Njokuani and has even beaten Holzken twice himself. Now with an opportunity to win the Muay Thai Title, Eersel looks to withstand the punching power of Klinmee and become a double champ in both kickboxing and Muay Thai.
ONE has plenty of talented martial artists to look out for throughout the evening. Kade Ruotolo is coming off of record breaking ADCC run were he became the youngest ADCC World Champion, winning all of his matches by all submission. He looks to build on that historical accomplishment by taking on Sambo Champion Uali Kurzhev for the ONE Lightweight Submission Grappling World Title. Hard-hitting Danial Williams (6-1) will go for his 6th knockout as he closes out the prelims this evening. Lastly, Amir Naseri and Taiki Naito look to represent ONE’s deepest weight class in a Muay Thai bout.
MMA Sucka will have live coverage for ONE on Prime Video 3: Lineker vs. Andrade. The full card will be available on Amazon Prime Video with the preliminary card starting at 8pm ET/5pm PT, followed by the main card at 10pm ET/7pm PT.
