Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida will be competing at ONE Fight Night 13 in the hopes of securing his fifth victory in a row in mixed martial arts competition and moving his career to the next level.
The decorated submission grappler has made a meteoric leap to the top of the heavyweight class with four consecutive first-round finishes in less than a year. Despite this meteoric rise, the decorated grappler does not intend to put the brakes on his career.
Almeida is well aware that the premier contenders in the category have a big advantage over him when it comes to experience as well as the amount of time spent training in MMA, despite the fact that he has aspirations to make it all the way to the very top.
Despite this, he is driven to acquire a toolbox that is comprehensive in nature. The seventeen-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion has dedicated every waking moment of the past year to perfecting all aspects of his game and maturing into a well-rounded mixed martial artist.
Now, the Brazilian athlete is prepared to make his comeback to competition and continue climbing the remaining few rungs on the ladder into title contention.
Almedia will compete against ‘Reug Reug’ Oumar Kane on August 4 at the historic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. Kane has four victories under his record inside the Circle.
The Senegalese wrestling specialist is a muscular tank who will ask a lot of questions of ‘Buchecha’ if the former elite submission grappler is unable to take the bout to the ground.
Almeida discussed the mental approach that he takes into every battle after making the move to mixed martial arts (MMA) in a conversation that took place on YouTube with The MMA Superfan.
Although he is aware that his opponents have more experience at the game, he believes that he can compete with them if he pushes himself to the utmost during training camp and demonstrates that he is completely dedicated to this stage of his career.
“Working hard in practice is the best way for me to show respect for my opponent,” she said. I am putting in as much effort as I possibly can into my training right now.
