John Lineker’s debut official for ONE: Dawn of Valor in October


ONE Championship has officially announced the full card for its upcoming event in Jakarta, Indonesia on Oct. 25, including the return of welterweight titleholder Zebaztian Kadestam and the debut of UFC veteran John Lineker.

Kadestam (12-4) puts his 185-pound title on the line against Kiamrian Abbasov (21-4).

“The Bandit” won three straight since coming up short in his first championship bout versus Ben Askren in 2017, capturing the welterweight belt in 2018 and defending it once earlier this year.

Abbasov’s three-fight winning streak is capped off by a second-round TKO over Yushin Okami.

As Lineker (31-9) announced in August, his ONE Championship debut will be against Muin Gafurov (17-2) at bantamweight (145 pounds).

The Brazilian brawler parted ways with the UFC following a decision defeat to Cory Sandhagen. Throughout his seven-year run in the Octagon, “Hands of Stone” won 12 of 16 fights.

Gafurov last fought in Oct. 2018, extending his winning streak to five with a first-round knockout over Leandro Issa.
