One on Prime Video 8 Loses Arjan Bhullar-Anatoliy Malykhin Headliner
One on Prime Video 8 will have a new main event after the heavyweight title unfication bout between Arjan Singh Bhullar and Anatoliy Malykhin was pulled from the card.
The Singapore-based promotion announced the news on Wednesday, citing a “shift in broadcaster commitments” as the reason for the cancellation. Bhullar vs. Malykin is expected to be rescheduled for a future One event. As a result, a flyweight kickboxing title bout pitting Superlek Kiatmoo9 against Rodtang Jitmuangnon will serve as the new One on Prime Video 8 headliner.
One on Prime Video 8 takes place on March 24 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The main card airs on Prime Video in the United States at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. ET, while prelims begin at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
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 injury and a contract dispute with the promotion.
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.
