‘The Sniper’ Stephen Loman, who is ranked second in the bantamweight division of the ONE Championship and competes in mixed martial arts (MMA), is confident that he will be the one to challenge ‘Wonder Boy’ Fabricio Andrade, who is currently the king of that division. As a result, Loman is not concerned about Andrade taking a different path in the interim.
At ONE Fight Night 15, Andrade is scheduled to compete against Jonathan “The General” Haggerty, who holds the title of ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion. This fight is going to be for the unclaimed bantamweight kickboxing world title from ONE Championship.
In a recent interview with The MMA Superfan, Loman stated that he will patiently wait for Andrade to finish with his transition into kickboxing so that they may restart their burgeoning rivalry. Loman and Andrade are both competitors in the mixed martial arts.
“The Sniper” said the following:
“I was genuinely expecting that Andrade would pick me next since he stated in his interview that I would be the one who would follow him. Because Andrade singled me out, I had every reason to believe that I would be the one who would go next. However, things did not go as planned, and he is now involved in another conflict. Regarding myself, I have not received any offers as of yet; however, I anticipate receiving one by the end of this year.
In spite of this, Loman insists that he has not ceased his preparation in order to be prepared for the call that will inevitably come asking him to compete for the world title. The Filipino firecracker is currently putting in a lot of work at the gym, taking advantage of the extra time to better prepare for Andrade’s specialized skill set.
“Yeah, the guys at Team Lakay were also anticipating an Andrade fight,” the commentator said. In addition, Coach Mark advised me to maintain my current level of preparation since ONE Championship could pit me against Andrade at any time. Therefore, that is what I did; I simply continued my training.”

Is it possible for Loman to provoke Andrade into a fight before the end of the year? It will be necessary to watch and observe what happens.
