Marcus Buchecha ONE debut vs Thomas Narmo targeted for Fall

Thomas Narmo is reportedly on the other side of the Marcus Buchecha ONE debut.

This possible prizefight was first highlighted by MMA Fighting. The outlet indicates that this bout is being targeted for a September 24th ONE Championship card.

Marcus Buchecha ONE debut

ONE: Revolution is purportedly the title of this Autumn show in Singapore Indoor Stadium. A showcase where Buchecha dons the small gloves for the first time in-competition.

Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida’s Jiu-Jitsu accolades reveal an incredible submission grappling resume. Almeida is a 13-time IBJJF world champion and a multi-time ADCC gold medalist. Buchecha has a wealth of submission grappling accomplishments in both the heavyweight and absolute divisions.

Almeida has been sharpening his skills at AKA over the years and recently at American Top Team. Steadily working to facilitate a smooth transition over into mixed martial arts competition.

There were previous links to Oumar Kane aka Reug Reug and Kang Ji Won in terms of first opponents for Buchecha in the ONE Circle. The ONE on TNT series (on the first and second installments specifically) bouts both ultimately fell by the wayside.

Thomas Narmo has a spotless 4-0 MMA record (one no contest). The towering 6’7 heavyweight has a one hundred percent finishing rate.

The Last Viking looks to notch his fifth straight victory and the former UFL heavyweight champion is pursuant of his first ONE Championship victory.

This will be the sophomore effort under the ONE Championship banner for Narmo. His anticipated bout on the pre-recorded ONE: Battleground II resulted in a calamitous no contest. A hectic fight whereby Thomas Narmo was writhing on the ground at the end.

Thomas Narmo and Alain Ngalani had their hugely ballyhooed heavyweight collision end inauspiciously. This following several errant low blows from both. An unintentional soccer kick groin strike to Narmo was what eventually caused the bout to halt completely.

Should this go down, who do you have getting it done when Buchecha versus Narmo takes place?
