Heated rivals Fabricio Andrade and John Lineker’s do-over with destiny at ONE Fight Night 7 on Prime Video has been moved to a later date inside a legendary arena.
The currently vacant bantamweight throne will finally have its ruler this February 24 in front of fight-hungry fans at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
The entire card will air live on US Primetime and free of charge for Amazon Prime Video subscribers in the United States and Canada.
The initial match between the pair of Brazilian firecrackers at ONE on Prime Video 3 back in October was undoubtedly one of the most exciting mixed martial arts bouts of 2022.
After an epic back-and-forth, Andrade shifted gears in the third round and was a strike or two from realizing his lifelong dream.
However, a cruel twist of fate put a wrench in those plans, as he landed an inadvertent knee to Lineker’s groin, causing the former world champion to fall onto the canvas writhing in pain.
Unfortunately, the high stakes bout was ruled a no contest, as a dejected ‘Wonder Boy’ left Axiata Arena without a world title.
The 25-year-old has been working his butt off in the gym since then and is eager to complete his redemption arc.
Meanwhile, Lineker is also out to prove his detractors wrong and showcase that he is still a premier fighter in the promotion.
In the co-main event, newly crowned featherweight Muay Thai world champion Tawanchai PK. Saenchai will make his first world title defense against the streaking Jamal Yusupov.
The Thai superstar, who won four of his first five bouts inside the Circle, will look to keep the momentum going after unseating the division’s inaugural kingpin Petchmorakot Petchyindee.
