Anatoly Malykhin captured the ONE Interim Heavyweight title at ONE: Bad Blood when he knocked out Kirill Grishenko in the second-round of the main event.
The undefeated Russian has been a force to reckon with in the ONE Heavyweight division and is currently 3-0 in the promotion with all his wins coming via stoppages. After his win over Grishenko, Malykhin went off on ONE Heavyweight champion Arjan Bhullar and noted that he can knockout Arjan.
“I think [Arjan Bhullar] peed himself. He probably peed himself when he was watching my fight and when he was watching my first fight, too. He’s a chicken. My baby. I can knock him out anytime. He’s not the champion, I’m the champion. He’s the fake champion! I’ll be ready once my leg is recovered. I’m waiting for him to come to Tiger Muay Thai, I’ll knock him out there and then we’ll go to the cage and I’ll knock him out there, too,” Malykhin noted [H/T Sportskeeda].
Arjan Bhullar won the ONE Heavyweight title with a win over Brandon Vera at ONE: Dangal but he is yet to defend the title due to contractual disputes with the promotion. It was announced during the broadcast of ONE: Bad Blood that the disputes are being sorted and Arjan is expected to fight Malykhin soon.
