Andy Souwer (2-3 MMA, 160-20-1 Kickboxing) decided to end the cooperation with the Japanese organization RIZIN and move to the largest Asian organization ONE Championship.
RIZIN announced that Souwer will face Takanori Gomi at the RIZIN 12 gala to be held on July 29 in Saitama, Japan. However, it looks like the two-time K-1 Max champion decided to leave the Japanese organization to start the ONE Championship. Souwer is also a multiple champion of Shootboxing and one of the best kickboxers who decided to try their hand at the MMA discipline. ONE Championship has recently decided to organize duels in kickboxing and Muay Thai in Super Series, which will allow Souwer to compete in both disciplines in one organization. Souwer defeated, among others such legends as Buakaw Banchamek and Yodsaenklai Fairtex. He won the K-1 Max tournament in 2005 and 2007, probably becoming the number one in the world among kickboxers in that period. As a MMA fighter, Souwer will have the opportunity to compete in the light division ONE Championship in which his potential opponents may be such fighters like Shinya Aoki, Eduard Folayang, Amir Khan, Honorio Banario, or Garry Tonon.
The only question is whether Andy Souwer decides to fight in both disciplines and when ONE Championship announces his first fight.
