Marcus Buchecha against ‘Reug Reug,’ removed again from Friday’s One: Reloaded card


A heavyweight bout between Brazilian jiu-jitsu legend Marcus Buchecha and Senegalese wrestler Oumar Kane — better known as “Reug Reug” — is off of Friday’s ONE Championship card in Singapore, the company announced Monday.

According to ONE the heavyweight bout will be rescheduled at a later date. The main program featured a bantamweight match between Chen Rui and Song Min Jong.

Buchecha vs. Reug Reug was originally scheduled for April 2021 but eventually fell through. Kane was 2-0 in MMA with two knockouts to his credit when he was paired up against the Brazilian grappler. Patrick Schmid was stopped by “Reug Reug”, who lost to Kirill Grishenko weeks later.

Buchecha had to wait until September of that same year to finally make his MMA debut, which he won by submitting Anderson “Braddock” Silva in under three minutes. Buchecha then improved to 2-0 in the sport with another first-round submission, tapping Ji Won Kang this past December.
