John Lineker eyes title shot with win over Worthen

There's a reason they call him "Hands of Stone" 💥 John Lineker knocks out Kevin Belingon to remain undefeated at ONE https://t.co/WSDX2RHP6O

After going 12-4 in his seven years at UFC, Lineker is now on the brink of his first title shot at a major promotion.

The 30-year-old defeated Muin Gafurov in his ONE debut before dismantling former champion Kevin Belingon last year, earning him the No. 1 ranking in the bantamweight division. The Brazilian takes on Worthen, who's coming off the first loss of his career against No. 3-ranked Yusup Saadulaev.

The winner will likely get a crack at champion Bibiano Fernandes, who owns the ONE record for most title defenses with eight.


44-year-old John Wayne Parr looks to turn back the clock vs. Holzken

ONE Championship @ONEChampionship

John Wayne Parr makes his ONE debut against Nieky Holzken at ONE on TNT III! Can he defeat the #1-ranked lightweight kickboxing contender on 21 April? @johnwayneparr @niekyholzken #ONEonTNT3 #WeAreONE #ONEChampionship https://t.co/yT9FR6Rd8p

It was a surprise to many when Parr, well into his 40s, signed a contract with ONE last year. His first pro bout was in 1997, but Parr believes he still has wins left in the tank 24 years later.

It's been nearly two years since his last match and nearly four years since his last win, but the 10-time world champion Aussie will step back into the cage to face another kickboxing legend in Holzken. The Dutchman is the No. 1-ranked contender in ONE's lightweight division and is eager for a trilogy bout against champion Regian Eersel.

Let's see what Parr still has to give.
