John “Hands of Stone” Lineker and Fabricio “Wonder Boy” Andrade have blessed the ONE Championship Circle with some of the finest knockouts in recent years, and there will be no surprise if either star leaves ONE Fight Night 7 on February 24, with another highlight-reel finish added to their tally.

Their heated rematch for the vacant ONE Bantamweight World Title fills the main event slot inside the Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, next Friday night, going down just four months after their first explosive first encounter.

Both fighters will be keen to put their rivalry to bed in the best way possible. To get you warmed up, let’s turn back the clock to some of their vicious knockouts.

#1 John Lineker vs. Kevin Belingon 

No one had knocked out former bantamweight king Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon in 27 fights, but that record was shattered in emphatic fashion when he crossed paths with “Hands of Stone” in November 2020.

The Brazilian fighter dug into the Filipino veteran’s midsection in the second round of their tussle at ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III, and he followed that up with a thumping right uppercut that sent his foe crashing to the canvas.

 After a delayed reaction, Lineker joined Belingon on the mat and attacked with a brief barrage of ground-and-pound to seal the win and earn the #1-ranked bantamweight position.

#2 Fabricio Andrade vs. Kwon Won Il

Leading up to his battle with Andrade at ONE 158 last June, “Pretty Boy” Kwon Won Il sent a stern warning to his Brazilian foe, claiming he had never faced anyone with his power before.

“Wonder Boy” quickly made the South Korean star eat his words when the Circle Door closed, however. After connecting with wicked left kicks and jabs in the opening exchanges, the Muay Thai wizard switched things up and unleashed a ruthless right kick that landed square on Kwon’s liver.

The #2-ranked contender went down and coiled up on the canvas, forcing the referee to intervene and hand Andrade the win just over a minute into the contest.

#3 John Lineker vs. Bibiano Fernandes

Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes’ long reign as the ONE Bantamweight World Champion came to a crashing end–quite literally–thanks to Lineker’s weapons of mass destruction at ONE: LIGHTS OUT last March. Fernandes decided to stand and bang with the then-top-ranked star in the opening frame, and he almost rocked Lineker on a couple of occasions.

However, “Hands of Stone” proved he had the chin to take it. In the second canto, Lineker turned things around and found holes in Fernandes’ stand-up game, eventually connecting with an inch-perfect left hook that earned him his first MMA World Title.
