The goal of Bruno “Pucci Bull” Pucci, 27, of Brazil on January 26, 2018 at “ONE: Global Superheroes” was to win his fourth bout under ONE Championship. But this has yet to be achieved as he lost to Emilio “The Honey Badger” Urrutia, 31, of the United States.

With 2 wins and 0 loss, Pucci fought his first ONE Championship fight on September 13, 2013 in Jakarta, Indonesia at “ONE: Champions and Warriors.” He maintained his undefeated record at the time by submitting Bashir “Somchai” Ahmad, 31 of Pakistan via rear-naked choke.

Pucci was supposed to fight Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen, 28, of Australia at “ONE: Honor and Glory” on May 30, 2014 in Kallang, Singapore but the latter had to pull out of the fight due to an infection. Nguyen, who is currently the reigning ONE Featherweight and Lightweight World Champion, was replaced by Major “Majee” Overall, 36, of the U.S.

After his first ONE Championship loss, Pucci redeemed himself at “ONE: Spirit of Champions” on December 11, 2015 in Metro Manila, Philippines by submitting Anthony “The Archangel” Engelen, 36, of the Netherlands via rear-naked choke. But on September 2, 2016, Pucci was knocked out by Nuerdebieke Bahetihan of China at “ONE: Unbreakable Warriors” in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

On June 30, 2017, Pucci won a ONE Championship bout for the third time. He knocked out Jimmy “The Silencer” Yabo, 36, of the Philippines via punches at “ONE: Light of a Nation” in Yangon, Myanmar.

The featherweight bout between Pucci and Urrutia at “ONE: Global Superheroes” in Metro Manila, Philippines was the fifth bout of the evening. It ended at 3:33 of Round 1 when Urrutia knocked out Pucci via a punch.

Pucci now has 5 wins and 3 losses while Urrutia has 11 wins and 4 losses. Watch a clip of their fight here:
