Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida’s MMA vocation has received off to a rocky start, but we might just have a matchup for his OneFC debut!
Viewed as to be 1 of the biggest present day grapplers in heritage, Buchecha has accomplished a staggering 13 IBJJF Earth Championship titles and 2 ADCC titles, amongst a lot of other higher-level accolades.
The road to MMA for Buchecha has been a prolonged and annoying road, exactly where he’s experienced to conquer various bumps alongside his journey from mats to cage. Buchecha’s initial MMA match was cancelled after a knee injuries sidelined the grappler not only from MMA but from a scheduled match in opposition to Fabricio Werdum at BJJ Wager.
Buchech’s second crack at the MMA scene was going to be in opposition to the undefeated Senagalese wrestling champion Oumar “Reug Reug” Kane. This promised to be an incredibly interesting matchup, having said that at the time once more Buchecha was sidelined by harm. Reug Reug, went on to deal with Alain Ngalani, where he picked up a gain with a devastating and frankly frightening floor and pound in the initial round.
Third Time Blessed
Now Buchecha has once from been scheduled for his debut MMA struggle. on April 7th he is booked to struggle versus undefeated Ji Won Kang, a experienced fighter with an unbeaten 4- record. Kang lately received his One particular FC debut by KO and was his forth 1st-round knockout gain, so this is a vintage “striker vs grappler” affair.
Bucecha is presently instruction MMA at American Prime Crew and is reported to be “injury free”.
