Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida To Make Long-Awaited MMA Debut At ONE Revolution
Marcus "Buchecha" Almeida will make his long-awaited mixed martial arts debut on the stacked ONE Championshipevent, ONE: Revolution, on Friday, September 24.

The Brazilian grappling star signed with ONE in the summer of 2020, and he is now set for his first opponent, who will test his skills in a striker vs. grappler matchup. His first opponent will be the heavy-handed Anderson "Braddock" Silva.

The task will be simple for the 17-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion: get "Braddock" to the canvas.

His fellow countryman has an impressive resume of his own as a Brazilian National Champion in kickboxing and a professional kickboxing record of 52-20-1. The matchup against Almeida also gives him the opportunity to show the heavyweight division he can stuff takedowns of one of the world's most elite submission artists.

As the heavyweight waters deepen with talent, both men have a chance to showcase their skills and establish their place in the pecking order. There is no time to waste, and with their heralded backgrounds, both men will be looking to leap toward the top of the division and chase reigning king Arjan Bhullar.

"Buchecha's" debut has all of the makings for an unforgettable matchup, and Silva will not be one to shy away inside the Circle. You can expect fireworks when the bell rings.

Which heavyweight will come out on top and send a message to the remainder of the heavyweight division? The answer will come at ONE: Revolution.

ONE: Revolution will air live on Bleacher Report on Friday, September 24, at 6:30 a.m. EST/3:30 a.m. PST.
