“Buchecha” is relieved that he won’t be required to engage in trash talking during the ONE Championship.


17-time Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida, a rising star in the world of heavyweight mixed martial arts and a world champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, is thrilled to have found a home with ONE Championship, the largest martial arts organization in the world.

Many athletes in the sport of mixed martial arts have voiced their gratitude to ONE Championship for shifting the emphasis away from manufactured drama and controversy in favor of genuine professional fighting. This is in contrast to other promotions, which use such tactics in order to increase ticket sales. Almeida, himself, is one of those warriors who has a tremendous appreciation for this fact, and he is not alone.

Almeida expressed his happiness at having the opportunity at ONE Championship to continue being himself during a recent guest appearance he made on the Jaxxon Podcast.

‘Buchecha’ said:

“I don’t like trash-talking. So that’s when I had the realization that “You know what, I don’t really need to be that clown who does trash-talking.”
Almeida is one of the nicest individuals you will ever meet that competes in combat sports, and he is known as the “gentle giant.” He has a calm demeanor, is well-mannered, and gives the impression that he has a great deal of respect for all of his rivals. Even more impressive is the level of humility he possesses.

But in spite of everything that has happened, ‘Buchecha’ is undeniably one of the game’s most dangerous heavyweights at this very moment. Almeida has established himself as a strong opponent in the Circle, boasting a perfect record of 4-0 with all victories coming through finish, including three wins by way of submission and one win by way of knockout.

The anticipated return of the Brazilian super star to competition won’t keep fans waiting for very long.

Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida is scheduled to engage in combat with Oumar ‘Reug Reug’ Kane, a Senegalese wrestling sensation, during ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which will be broadcast on Prime Video. On Friday, August 4, the action may be seen live on broadcasts originating from the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

Amazon Prime Video will broadcast all of the action live and for no additional cost to customers in the United States and Canada.
