When ONE Championship returns with the second installment of its Unbreakable series, expect some heavy artillery.
Former ONE Heavyweight World Title contender Mauro “The Hammer” Cerilli and Abdulbasir “Dagestan Machine” Vagabov will square off in the titanic main event at the previously-recorded ONE: Unbreakable II, which airs this Friday, January 29.
Cerili wants nothing more than to get another shot at longtime ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera after losing to the Filipino in the first round by TKO.
The Italian has been working double time to get himself back in the mix of the loaded heavyweight division bolstered by recent acquisitions like Vagabov.
Vagabov has an impressive 12-1 record entering The Home Of Martial Arts, having finished 91 percent of his opponents.
If Vagabov beats Cerilli, it will catapult him into the division’s elite, joining guys like “Singh” Arjan Bhullar and Amir Aliakbari, who are also waiting for a shot at “The Truth.”
In the co-main event, it will be a battle between two slick grapplers as Daichi Takenaka drops to flyweight to take on Ivanildo “Monstrinho” Delfino.
Takenaka was one of the main players in the bantamweight division, but after losing to Yusup “The Maestro” Saadulaev he decided to go a different route.
Now, he can only hope to get back to winning ways against Delfino, who’s also hungry for a victory.
Delfino absorbed the first loss of his career to Tatsumitsu “The Sweeper” Wada, making this match a clash between two talented athletes looking to get their careers back on track.
