ONE Championship double champion Reinier De Ridder wants all the belts. Fresh off his Middleweight title defence against Vitaly Bigdash, De Ridder noted that he wants to remain active and wants to be a triple and quadruple champion.

The Dutchman revealed the same during his recent interview with SCMP MMA and added that he is in ONE Championship to achieve things that nobody else could.

"I just want to be active, and it's something unique, and that's what this is all about. I want to do something special. I want to do unique stuff. I want to do something in my life that nobody else can. Achieve stuff nobody else can, and that's why I'm here,” De Ridder noted (h/t Sportskeeda).

The two-division champion has already expressed his interest in moving to Heavyweight and holds a win over ONE Welterweight champion Kiamrian Abbasov.

“That's why I stepped into the cage. And I did something special already. I'm the double champ, undefeated. I choke out everybody. And now I want to be triple champ, and then after that quadruple champ,” he added.

The ONE Heavyweight division is currently ruled by Arjan Bhullar who is reportedly set to fight Interim Heavyweight champion Anatoly Malykhin for unification. When asked about Arjan, De Ridder noted that the beef with Arjan Bhullar was not real.

"He's a good guy, man. As we said before, he's a family man. He's a normal dude. He's basically me from another country. He works hard and trains hard. So I have nothing but respect for him, and I've always had. His coach tried to get into some beef, but it wasn't real,” De Ridder added.
