Anatoly Malykhin

ONE Championship will present ONE: Fists Of Fury II, a previously record event, on Friday, March 5 with two amazing heavyweight bouts at the top of the ticket.

In the co-main event, Brazilian Alexandre "Bebezao" Machado will try to make a case for contention in the heavyweight division against the undefeated Anatoly Malykhin.

Machado's 88% finishing rate makes him a constant threat inside the ONE Circle, and picking up a key victory by a finish in the co-main event would help bolster his push to meet Brandon Vera for the ONE Heavyweight World Championship.

But the Russian will have similar plans to put himself in the thick of the hunt during his debut in the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Perhaps most impressive about Malykhin's undefeated streak is that they have all come by way of finish. He holds a perfect 100% finishing rate with four knockouts and three submissions. The step-up in competing when he steps inside the Circle will truly test where he stands on the global stage.

If either man can steal the spotlight ahead of the main event, they could position themselves right at the top of the food chain for 2021 and have a golden opportunity against Vera.

ONE: Fists Of Fury II will air on B/R Live at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m. PST on Friday, March 5.

When I first started kenpo karate, I had no idea that this would become a passion which would then turn into something my life revolves around. As I continued my training, I became more and more serious about the art and soon found myself entering competitions.

Eating before your martial arts training is just as important as wearing your Gi. Unfortunately, there is a myth that eating before your workout will hamper your training. As I said, it is a myth. Training on an empty stomach is like driving your car further than the gas you have in the tank. Exactly, you can't.
