This coming Sunday, January 28th, will be the day that Northcutt and Aoki finally face one other at ONE 165: Superlek vs. Takeru, which will be aired live from the Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan.

In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Northcutt discussed his forthcoming fight and had nothing but positive things to say about his opponent from Japan. He also mentioned that he is looking forward to the fight.

The product that was sold by Evolve MMA and Team Alpha Male stated:

“Without a doubt. You should know that we had the fight set in the past, and I am aware that I became ill with COVID a couple of weeks before we were supposed to travel there to have the fight. This was a really terrible occurrence. But it’s true that the potential to engage in this conflict is a significant one. To be able to have this battle is something that I am grateful for, because Shinya is widely regarded as a legend in the sport. He is 47-11, which means that he has fought a lot of professional bouts and was the former champion.
