Promotional newcomer Ivanildo Delfino looks like a potential dark horse. He holds a perfect 8-0 record and has beaten some top ranked flyweights on the highly competitive Brazilian scene.
Delfino faces Tatsumitu Wada in his quarter final. The winner will meet either Demetrious Johnson or Yuya Wakamatsu in the semi final with all the matchups set to take place at ONE: ‘A New Era’ next month.
On the other side of the bracket Danny Kingad has been matched with Andrew Leone while Reece McLaren takes on Kairat Akhmetov, all four of these fighters have either challenged for or held a ONE Championship title.
Kingad and Wada faced each other recently with the Filipino securing a decision win over the Japanese fighter at ONE: ‘Hero’s Ascent’.
