ONE on Prime Video 5 will feature one of the most anticipated debuts in ONE Championship’s history when Roberto Soldic steps into the circle.
The former double champion in KSW has produced one of the best current runs in MMA to become a big name in Europe. ‘Robocop’ went 8-1 in KSW, winning all of his fights via finish and avenging his one loss in an immediate rematch.
Coming into ONE Championship as the former welterweight and middleweight world champion in his former promotion, Soldic was always going to be entering the division near the top.
On his debut on December 2, the Croatian won’t receive any red carpet treatment though as he steps in to face one of the division's best.
Murad Ramazanov is unbeaten at 11-0, with three wins inside the circle. Between his run competing in ONE Championship and the hype around Soldic’s debut, there’s a lot on the line in this fight.
In an interview with The MMA Superfan, Soldic spoke about his upcoming opponent:
"It's going to be a good fight, a tough fight for me also, but for him too. I'm a big problem when I put pressure and he's strong and he has good control. So we will see, we will see in December, it's going to be a good fight. I like a good fight."
