The ONE bantamweight title is on the line at ONE on Prime Video 3, but only one man can actually keep the belt with a win. John Lineker and Fabricio Andrade fight for gold on October 21.
ONE on Prime Video 3 takes place inside Axiata Arena in Malaysia.
Lineker, the champion heading into this week, was stripped of the 145-pound title after he failed to make weight. He weighed in at 145.5 pounds on his first attempt and 145.75 pounds on his second try. Per The South China Morning Post, Lineker passed ONE’s hydration test, but the weigh-ins ended up being the key indicator whether he could keep the belt. As a result, only Andrade can hold onto the bantamweight belt at the event, if he wins.
“When a fighter doesn’t make weight at ONE, he goes back to square zero because he has to make weight and pass the hydration test,” Lineker’s manager Alex Davis told MMA Fighting. “That mistake happened because his scale was off in his room, lighter than the official one. When that happens, you have a second attempt to make weight but you have to pass the hydration test again. He couldn’t do it.
“Having two attempts to make weight in three hours is a bit complicated. That’s the rule and we’ll respect it. Fabricio accepted the fight, and we’ll see John’s situation after the fight.”
Lineker, who previously fought in the UFC from 2012-2019, has missed weight five times before this event. He joined ONE in 2019 and beat Bibiano Fernandes in March to win the bantamweight title.
Andrade made his pro debut in 2014 and joined ONE in 2020. 5-0 with ONE, Andrade’s last fight was a knockout win over Kown Won Il.
