Despite the fact that he is surrounded by some of the best grapplers in the division, Filipino strawweight Jeremy Miado is unfazed by the situation and eager to take on the task.
Although he is more known for his striking abilities, ‘The Jaguar’ has stated that he has been gradually working on his grappling game in order to improve his ability to compete in his weight class, which he characterizes as being currently dominated by notable wrestlers.
Jeremy Miado, who will be competing later this week against an outstanding wrestler by the name of Mansur Malachiev, recently sat down with ONE Championship to talk about a variety of topics, one of which was the present situation of the strawweight class.
The star member of the Marrok Force, who is 30 years old, said:
“Taking a look at the top five, practically everyone competes in the grappling division. My ability will be put to the test by Mansur, who is an accomplished wrestler. I can’t wait to find out how things turn out.”
On June 9 at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Jeremy Miado will compete against Mansur Malachiev during ONE Fight Night 11, which will be broadcast live on Prime Video.
The event will be shown live on US primetime, and Prime Video users in North America will be able to watch it for free.
Jeremy Miado is currently riding a four-fight win streak that has seen him move on the cusp of barging into the top five in the strawweight rankings. This has seen him progress up the rankings to the point where he is almost ready to barge into the top five.
His most recent victory came in October of last year when he knocked out Thai-Australian fireball Danial Williams in the third round in their strike fest. This was his most recent victory.
For his part, Russian Mansur Malachiev, who is 32 years old and will be making his promotional debut at ONE Fight Night 11, is aiming for an introduction that will live long in the memory.
The fighter, who was born in Dagestan, has an excellent resume, which includes a perfect record of 10-0 from the Russian circuit, with eight of his victories coming by means of a finish.
