ONE Championship did not say which card Buchecha vs. Reug Reug would be rebooked to and will provide that at a later date. The fight is an old school stylistic matchup in a modern mma age. Similar to UFC 1 and it’s matchmaking, Buchecha is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champion and Reug Reug is a champion from Senegalese wrestling. The matchup pits two grappling styles against each other which is what has fans clamoring for the fight to actually happen.
ONE Championship: Reloaded still stacked
Regardless of the rebooking of Reug Reug and Buchecha, ONE Championship: Reloaded is still a great card.
Atop the card, Regian Eersel is defending his welterweight title against Arian Sadikovic in a kickboxing bout. The co-main event is for the women’s vacant flyweight Muay Thai title featuring Smilla Sundell and Jackie Buntan.
In addition to that, Jarred Brooks and Bokang Masunyane are fighting in a title eliminator for a shot against champion Joshua Paciao.
Also on the card, UK Muay Thai sensation, Liam Harrison, takes on Thailand’s Thanousin on the main card as well.
While ONE Championship: Reloaded lost the fantastic style versus style matchup in Buchecha vs. Reug Reug, the card is still fantastically loaded with great fights that you don’t want to miss.
