John Lineker Vs. Fabricio Andrade II Confirmed For ONE On Prime Video 7

John Lineker touches gloves with Fabricio Andrade at ONE on Prime Video 3

Fans won’t have to wait long for the second meeting between John Lineker and Fabricio Andrade, with the rematch now locked in for Friday, February 10, 2023.

Lineker and Andrade first faced off at ONE on Prime Video 3 this past October, but the no-contest ending wasn’t a satisfying outcome for either party.

Now, the Brazilian MMA stars will settle their score in a ONE Bantamweight World Title fight at ONE on Prime Video 7, which airs live in U.S. primetime from the Jakarta Convention Center in Indonesia.

Lineker was the reigning bantamweight king heading into their first matchup, but the 31-year-old missed weight and was stripped of his belt as a result. However, Andrade was still eligible to win the gold – and he fought like it.

Although Lineker scored with some powerful punches, “Wonder Boy” did a great job of using his range and wide-ranging arsenal to rack up damage on his compatriot.

In round three, with “Hands of Stone” clearly wearing the scars of battle, Andrade went for the finish with a knee to the body that looked like it was the beginning of the end.

Unfortunately, the 25-year-old’s next knee went low, and Lineker could not continue. 

Andrade has claimed that his rival “took the easy way out” when he knew he was going to lose, and he’s confident he’ll win the rematch even more definitely.

For his part, Lineker is adamant the illegal blow caused too much damage for him to keep fighting, but he is happy to do his talking in their second encounter.

With Andrade’s performance earning him the #1 spot and Lineker dropping to #2 in the updated ONE Athlete Rankings, the odds have arguably switched in “Wonder Boy’s” favor. Of course, “Hands of Stone” can never be counted out when he’s always one punch away from an emphatic victory.

With three months to go, each man will be in exceptional shape and armed with more knowledge about their opponent. Those factors could make for a different dynamic when they square off for the vacant ONE Bantamweight World Title in Jakarta.

Stay tuned to for more updates on the ONE on Prime Video 7 fight card.
