ONE Bantamweight World Champion Fabricio Andrade will go for two-sport gold at ONE Fight Night 15. However, one week earlier, he will get to see who becomes the clear-cut contender for the belt he already has around his waist. ONE Championship has announced a contender’s showdown between top-ranked contender John Lineker and second-ranked Stephen Loman for ONE Fight Night 14.
Lineker vs. Loman at ONE Fight Night 14
Lineker is coming off a late-round knockout performance that kept him at the top of the official ONE athlete rankings. The Brazilian shut down Kim Jae Woong to get back in the win column. However, Loman has been making the most noise since arriving at ONE.
The Filipino has shined with all three of his victories in ONE. However, none was more impressive than his last outing. Last November, Loman thoroughly dominated former ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano Fernandes to move into title contention.
The bantamweight war will undoubtedly give the winner an inside track at Andrade. Meanwhile, the loser could have to move to the back of the line. Ultimately, the fans are the beneficiary of an outstanding stylistic clash that is sure to produce highlight-reel action when the bell rings.
ONE Fight Night 14 is being stacked with talent. Although the top of the bill will see Stamp Fairtex and Seo Hee Ham collide for the Interim ONE Atomweight World Championship, the rest of the card is shaping up to be just as exciting. And the bantamweight contender clash will only set the stage for an amazing night in “The Lion City.”
ONE Fight Night 14 airs live on Friday, September 29, from the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The action begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Prime Video. The event will be free for all Amazon Prime subscribers in the U.S. and Canada.
