  • A new main event has been announced for ONE on Prime Video 3
  • The event will now be headlined by the bantamweight title bout between John Lineker and Fabricio Andrade
  • Reinier de Ridder vs. Shamil Abdulaev was supposed to be the banner match of the said card

In its much-awaited return to Malaysia, ONE Championship is set to hold another feature presentation on Amazon Prime Video this coming October 22 (October 21 in the United States) with a fight card originally headlined by two-division kingpin Reinier de Ridder defending his middleweight title against promotional newcomer Shamil Abdulaev.

However, due to unforeseen circumstances, the promotion had to postpone the aforementioned match-up to a later date.

This was confirmed during the live broadcast of ONE on Prime Video 2 over the weekend following several reports that Abdulaev was not medically cleared to compete.

Although ONE Championship never released an official statement on the reason behind the moratorium of de Ridder's third defense of his middleweight championship, the organization had announced that the co-main event of the extravaganza numbered "ONE on Prime Video 3" would be taking its place on the marquee.

The spotlight is now on UFC veteran John Lineker, putting his ONE bantamweight belt on the line against Brazilian compatriot and fellow hard-hitter Fabricio Andrade.

Lineker got his taste of gold when he overthrew Bibiano Fernandes for the bantamweight strap via second-round knockout this past March.

Meanwhile, Andrade staked his claim to be next in line for a world title shot courtesy of his vicious body-shot knockout of Kwon Won Il last June.

For months now, tension has been brewing between the two as they have been exchanging harsh words in interviews and on social media.

At ONE on Prime Video 3, both Lineker and Andrade will have the opportunity to settle their row once and for all.

Aside from its new headliner, the live event is also slated to feature two more world title contests and the finals of the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix.

Regian Eersel—the reigning ONE lightweight kickboxing champion—will return to action on the morning of October 22 versus Thai striker Sinsamut Klinmee with the outfit's inaugural lightweight May Thai championship on the line.

On the other hand, newly-minted 2022 ADCC winner Kade Ruotolo is booked to go head-to-head with accomplished judoka and sambo stylist Uali Kurzhev for the honor to be enshrined as the first-ever ONE lightweight submission grappling titleholder.

In the deciding duel of the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix, Superlek Kiatmoo9 will lock horns with Panpayak Jitmuangnon.

At the moment, the only non-title joust booked to be part of ONE on Prime Video 3 is a featherweight mixed martial arts clash between Kim Jae Woong and Shamil Gasanov.

ONE on Prime Video 3 is scheduled to happen at the 16,000-capacity Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
