Reinier de Ridder, Kiamrian Abbasov collide in ONE: Full Circle main event, David Branch debuts vs. Leandro Ataides

Reinier de Ridder will defend his middleweight belt in the main event of ONE: Full Circle.
ONE Championship

Back to the middleweight division after moving up a weight class to conquer another belt, Reinier de Ridder is set to defend his throne against fellow ONE Championship titleholder Kiamrian Abbasov in the main event of ONE: Full Circle at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Feb. 25.

de Ridder (14-0) currently holds the ONE middleweight and light heavyweight belts, taking both away from Aung La N Sang, and will attempt to stop Abbasov (23-4), the welterweight king, from becoming a two-division champion.

Abbasov is riding a five-fight winning streak that includes a second-round TKO over Yushin Okami, followed by championship victories against Zebaztian Kadestam and James Nakashima. de Ridder is 5-0 under the ONE banner with a trio of finishes.

The card will also feature the debut of ex-WSOF two-division champion, UFC veteran David Branch, who takes on Leandro Ataides. Branch (22-7) hasn’t competed since December 2019, a loss to Alexander Shlemenko in his first post-UFC appearance, while Ataides (11-5) attempts to bounce back from defeats to de Ridder and La N Sang.

ONE: Full Circle will also feature title bouts under kickboxing and muay thai rules, plus the return of La N Sang in a trilogy clash with Vitaly Bigdash. Check the complete lineup below.
