The clash between ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion Jonathan Haggerty and ONE bantamweight MMA world champion Fabricio Andrade is undeniably one of the most intriguing in the organization’s history.
The fans of ONE Championship have absolutely no idea who they think will come out on top in November, and you have to award it to ONE Championship for doing a good job of creating an air of mystery for the event.
Will it be Haggerty, the man who won an unexpected decision this year to take over as the new king of the world in the bantamweight division of Muay Thai? Or will it be the recently minted mixed martial arts (MMA) world champion Fabricio Andrade, who annihilated his whole division with some of the most spectacular highlight-reel finishes in the history of the company?
The supporters have spoken out this week in response to an Instagram picture that demonstrated Andrade knocking out his opponent with a brutal liver kick.
It said in the caption:
“Liver that’s been diced” Fabricio Andrade is challenging Jonathan Haggerty for the ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title on November 3 at ONE Fight Night 16 on Prime Video. Can Fabricio Andrade stop Jonathan Haggerty? @fabricioandrade1″

Finding an athlete of Fabricio Andrade’s caliber, known as “Wonder Boy,” only happens once. The Brazilian superstar is one of the most brilliant and gifted mixed martial arts (MMA) strikers the world has ever seen, and he is more well-rounded than his predecessors.
Andrade, who came from a poor family, left his native country to chase his aspirations of being a world-class Muay Thai kickboxer and put in countless hours of hard effort to get there. After competing at the highest level with great success, he made the switch to mixed martial arts (MMA) and has been unbeatable ever since.
He incorporates Muay Thai, kickboxing, and jiu-jitsu into his stand-up, and he does so in a way that is extremely effective. On the other hand, the most difficult task for him this year will be to successfully make the switch back to kickboxing without the assistance of MMA or Muay Thai and to outmaneuver Jonathan Haggerty’s more advanced striking.
On November 3, at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), ONE Fight Night 16 will feature Haggerty vs. Andrade for the unclaimed ONE bantamweight kickboxing world championship. The event will be streamed live on Amazon Prime Video.
