17-time Since making his mixed martial arts debut in September 2021, Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion and rising ONE Championship heavyweight mixed martial arts contender Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida has finished every opponent he has faced in the first round. But the veteran, who is 32 years old, admits that he anticipates having a lot harder time out against his next opponent.
The fight between Almeida and Oumar ‘Reug Reug’ Kane, the wrestling champion of Senegal, is set to take place at ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which will be shown on Prime Video the following month. This bout is anticipated to be a titanic showdown between two extremely powerful heavyweights.
Almeida stated his belief that he may be able to take ‘Reug Reug’ all the way to the distance in a recent interview with The MMA Superfan.
“I’ll be ready to go the distance with him throughout all three rounds.”
Watch the interview in the following video:
If it does really get that far, this will be the first time that Almeida competes in the championship round. After utterly dominating and finishing all of his opponents in the opening round, the Brazilian grappling icon hasn’t even advanced past the first round at this point in the competition.
As a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, ‘Buchecha’ just looks absolutely great, and it will be intriguing to see just how far he can go in the sport. Is it possible for Almeida to continue his run of finishing in the first round? The audience won’t have to keep guessing for very long.
Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida will make his comeback to action in a vital heavyweight showdown against Oumar ‘Reug Reug’ Kane at 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 offers subscribers in the United States and Canada the opportunity to watch all of the action at no additional cost.
