For the second time, Marcus Buchecha saw his planned opponent at ONE Championship for his MMA debut, drop out. After Oumar “Reug Reug” Kane did not come to an agreement with the organization and left the fight with the Brazilian BJJ world champion scheduled for February, it is now South Korean Ji Won Kang, for reasons not yet revealed, who left the heavyweight contest – according to information from the MMA Fighting website.
The winningest Jiu-Jitsu world champion in history, with 13 titles won, and two-time ADCC champion – the biggest grappling tournament in the world -, Buchecha was supposed to face Ji Won Kang on April 7th. However, for a reason still unknown, the South Korean, who fought on March 5, when he knocked out Amir Aliakbari in the first round – and reached his fifth knockout in five fights as a professional -, will no longer be fighting . Thus, the black belt still needs an opponent to make his MMA debut.
