A highly anticipated rematch between John Lineker and Fabricio Andrade has been announced for ONE on Prime Video 7 next February.
The rematch sees the promotion’s vacant bantamweight title up for grabs, after Brazil’s Lineker (35-9, 1NC) was stripped of the belt earlier this year. Lineker, who won the title in March by knocking out Bibiano Fernandes, missed weight for what would have been his first title defense — only for the bout to end in a No Contest when Andrade (8-2, 1NC) landed a knee to the groin.
The low blow rendered Lineker unable to continue, leaving the title vacant as a result.
Promotion officials announced the rematch’s booking on Tuesday.

Prior to that tumultuous turn of events at ONE on Prime Video 3 last month, Lineker had won four straight, with his last loss a split decision against Cory Sandhagen under the UFC banner.
Fellow Brazilian Andrade is undefeated under the ONE Championship banner, and has not lost a fight since 2017. The 25-year old known as “Wonder Boy” had won seven straight fights prior to his first meeting with Lineker, and had earned stoppages in four of his five ONE Championship bouts to that point.
ONE on Prime Video 7 will take place on February 10, 2023, streaming live on Amazon’s Prime Video platform in U.S. prime time.
