17-time When he faces the Senegalese wrestling sensation Oumar ‘Reug Reug’ Kane the next week, Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion and emerging ONE Championship heavyweight mixed martial arts star Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida won’t pretend to be someone he’s not. “Buchecha” Almeida is a growing ONE Championship heavyweight mixed martial arts star.
In point of fact, the grappling giant, who is 32 years old, has stated that he intends to make quick work of ‘Reug Reug’ when the two of them come face to face and that he will employ his superior jiu-jitsu skills as much as possible.
In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Almeida stated that he intends to be patient but will seize every opportunity to take ‘Reug Reug’ to the ground and finish him in the manner in which he is most proficient.
“Of course, jiu-jitsu is my area of expertise, and it would be fantastic if I could use it in the match, since it has been and will continue to be my primary goal. But even if it isn’t possible, I’m not going to let myself get frustrated.
When the grappling veteran, who will be 32 years old next week, competes in ONE Championship, fans can, without a shadow of a doubt, anticipate another masterclass-level performance from him.
Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida, regarded as one of the best grapplers of all time, is scheduled to compete against Oumar ‘Reug Reug’ Kane of Senegal during ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which will be broadcast on Prime Video.
