‘Buchecha’ Marcus Almeida discusses the potential of Odie Delaney

Odie Delaney made his second appearance for ONE Championship at ONE 158 last Friday. ‘The Witness’ put on an impressive performance on his return, defeating Iranian wrestler Mehdi Barghi via submission 2:22 in the second round.

Also appearing on the card was Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida, who put on an equally impressive performance. ‘Buchecha’ and Delaney have been vocal about their friendship, with the latter referring to Almeida as a “brother in Christ.”

Sportskeeda MMA’s Dylan Bowker had the chance to speak to Almeida and ask about this blossoming friendship.

“Odie Delaney is an amazing guy. I met him on American Top Team when I started my MMA career. I’ve had many opportunities to train with him and his level of wrestling is impressive. Seeing his size and skill is amazing. I learned a lot from him. I’m happy to see him fight and get a very good win on his debut.”

When asked what makes Odie Delaney such a good person, Almeida responded by saying:

“Odie has a big heart. everyone likes him It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t like him.”



Marcus Almeida says Odie Delaney has “the potential to go very far in this field”.

While discussing Delaney’s potential in the ONE circle, Marcus Almeida praised the American’s groundplay, a skill he believes will take The Witness very far in the heavyweight division.

“Odie’s level of wrestling is among the highest in the United States. He’s a guy who’s at the top of the category. Undoubtedly, this is one of his main skills. He has everything to go very far in his division. We see athletes who manage to take the fight to their comfort zone and manage to do very well, and he manages to do that with wrestling. He has a lot of potential to go very far in this division.



With another dominant win at ONE 158, Delaney could soon find himself in the heavyweight title picture. His friend Almeida is in a similar position after his third straight finish in the ONE circle.
