Even though it still isn’t known who Buchecha’s opponent will be, his fight will take place as a part of the “ONE: X” card, which is scheduled for December 5 in Singapore.
The 13-time BJJ world champion and two-time ADCC gold medalist previously made his MMA debut in ONE in late September, and went head-to-head with the kickboxing fighter Anderson “Braddock” Silva; in a heavyweight fight at ONE Championship: Revolution.
Buchecha won in less than three minutes, tapping him out with a choke from North-South.
He was extremely happy after the win:
It’s like a dream coming true. Starting a new sport from zero, something hard, but my life is about challenges. I did everything in jiu-jitsu so I don’t feel I have anything else to prove, so I decided to start a new career in MMA and that was the first step of feeling great, feeling blessed. I’m really thankful.
