From Humble Beginnings to World Champion

Fabricio Andrade, the reigning and undisputed ONE bantamweight MMA world champion, has overcome incredible odds to reach the pinnacle of his sport. Despite his immense success, Andrade’s journey started from very humble beginnings. In a recent podcast appearance, he opened up about his struggles and the challenges he faced along the way.

Andrade, known as ‘Wonder Boy,’ is widely regarded as one of the most talented and dangerous fighters in the world. However, his path to success wasn’t always smooth. At one point in his career, he found himself competing in kickboxing in mainland China, struggling to make ends meet in a foreign country.

During the podcast interview, Andrade shared a particularly difficult period in his life. He recalled a time when he had no money and was forced to leave the gym due to a dispute with his manager. With only $100 to his name, he had nowhere to go. Despite his family’s suggestion to return to Brazil, Andrade was determined to find a way to continue pursuing his dreams.

Today, Andrade stands atop the combat sports world as the reigning ONE bantamweight MMA world champion. His next challenge will be to claim two-sport supremacy in his upcoming fight against Jonathan Haggerty , the ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion. The highly anticipated showdown will take place at ONE Fight Night 15 on Prime Video on October 6. The fight will be for the ONE interim bantamweight kickboxing world title.

Fans in the United States and Canada can catch all the action live and free with an active Amazon Prime Video subscription.
