ONE 166: De Ridder Vs. Malykhin 2 Preview And Livestream Info

This Friday, live from the Lusail Sports Arena, ONE Championship heads to Qatar for ONE 166, which will feature the rematch between current 205-pound champion Reinier de Ridder and interim titleholder Anatoly Malykhin.

ONE Championship has already had an exciting year of events, and they seem to just be getting started. With their organization debuting in yet another country this week, it is clear that global expansion is at the top of the priority list for the Asian MMA powerhouse.

Preceding the event’s headlining fight, two more MMA titles will be on the line, following a 7-bout undercard.

Back in December 2022, Malykhin defeated De Ridder by knockout in the main event of ONE Fight Night 5. Now, Malykhin will look to achieve championship gold in a third weight class as he moves down to 205-pounds to face De Ridder once again.

Undefeated in 13 professional appearances, Malykhin plans to continue tearing through the ranks of multiple weight divisions in ONE Championship. However, De Ridder, who has only lost once in his career, is motivated to bounce back after the damaging loss.
