According to John Lineker, the most difficult obstacle throughout camp was the mental barrier.

Fabricio Andrade dislodged the former ONE bantamweight world champion John “Hands of Stone” Lineker from his perch atop the bantamweight heap in a spectacular fashion. Lineker was formerly at the pinnacle of the bantamweight division.

Lineker’s confidence was completely destroyed as a result of the fact that “Wonder Boy” is now the reigning monarch of the division.

But the strongest fighters always find a way to overcome obstacles and come out on top in the end. That is exactly what ‘Hands of Stone’ achieved not too long ago, despite the fact that he professes to having mental difficulties.

In a recent interview with ONE Championship, the veteran Brazilian fighter discussed his preparation for his comeback fight by discussing the importance of working on his psychological game.

The ‘Hands of Stone’ singer, who is 33 years old, said:

“I reflected on how to get back into the game and how to stay focused, and as a result, I put a lot of effort into working on that psychological aspect.”

Lineker is scheduled to make his return to competition in a couple of weeks, and he is eager to demonstrate that he should still be considered for the world title.

John “Hands of Stone” Lineker, a former ONE bantamweight world champion and a current No. 1 ranked bantamweight MMA contender, is scheduled to compete against “The Fighting God” Kim Jae Woong, a dangerous South Korean fighter, during ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which will be broadcast on Prime Video.

On Friday, August 4, the event will be presented in real time via live transmission from the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

Fans in the United States and Canada who have an active subscription to Amazon Prime Video will not have to pay anything extra to see all of the action live and for free.
