Fabricio Andrade believes that a victory over Jonathan Haggerty will bring him ‘one step closer’ to achieving success in all three of his sports.

Fabricio Andrade’s never-ending drive to achieve his goals is the one thing that can never be disproved or taken away from him in any manner, shape, or form.

The Brazilian fighter has a mission to establish himself as the undisputed champion of the bantamweight category ever since he made his debut with ONE Championship.

He accomplished this goal earlier this year at ONE Fight Night 7 by submitting John Lineker in their rematch at the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in order to win the vacant ONE bantamweight MMA world title.

Instead of basking in his victories and taking pleasure in the fruits of his labor, ‘Wonder Boy’ got right down to business and started concentrating on the next item to cross off his list of objectives.

Andrade will be competing in the main event of ONE Fight Night 16 at Lumpinee Stadium, and he will be looking to become a world champion in not one, but two different sports.

On Friday, November 3, two individuals who already hold the title of world champion in their respective sports will compete against each other in an attempt to win the unclaimed ONE Kickboxing World Championship.

Jonathan Haggerty, the current holder of the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai world championship, stands in Andrade’s way, but “Wonder Boy” just sees this as the second step toward achieving something larger while competing under the ONE Championship banner.

Not only does the Brazilian want to defeat the Brit in order to win the vacant kickboxing title, but after that he has his sights set on fighting Haggerty for a second time with Haggerty’s Muay Thai belt on the line. This would be a major goal for the Brazilian.

Fabricio Andrade laid out his strategy to remain active as a champion while pursuing additional gold in an interview with The MMA Superfan. In the course of the discussion, Fabricio Andrade made it apparent that he intends to win world championships in three different sports.

“Indeed, without a doubt. That makes perfect sense. If I am successful in winning the kickboxing belt and knocking him out, I will go one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a world champion in three different sports. Therefore, it is without a doubt that I would like to defend both of my titles and make an attempt to win his Muay Thai strap.
