Arjan Bhullar-Anatoliy Malykhin Title Unification Bout Set for One on Prime Video 8
Arjan Singh Bhullar and Anatoliy Malykhin will square off in a heavyweight title unification bout at One on Prime Video 8.
The Singapore-based promotion recently announced the booking. Bhullar and Malykhin were initially slated to meet at One Championship 161 last September, but Bhullar withdrew from the card due to injury. One on Prime Video 8 takes place on March 24 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore and airs in primetime via Prime Video in the United States.
A four-time UFC veteran, Bhullar claimed the undisputed heavyweight crown with a second-round technical knockout victory against Brandon Vera at One Championship “Dangal” in April 2021. Bhullar has won four straight fights and 11 of 12 professional outings overall. Bhullar has not competed since that victory due to the aforementioned injury and a contract dispute with the promotion, according to a release.
Malykhin, meanwhile, is undefeated in 11 professional appearances — including four triumphs under the One banner. He claimed the interim heavyweight belt with a second-round KO of Kirill Grishenko at One Championship “Bad Blood” in February 2022. He returned to action on Dec. 2, when he claimed the light heavyweight (225-pound) crown with a first-round stoppage of Reinier de Ridder at One on Prime Video 5.
