Reinier de Ridder is currently among the cream of the crop in One Championship.

The Dutchman became a simultaneous two-division title holder in the Singapore-based promotion on April 29, when he took a five-round verdict over Aung La N Sang to claim the light heavyweight belt in the One on TNT 4 headliner.

De Ridder has accomplished quite a lot since beginning his professional mixed martial arts tenure in 2013. Here is a look at some of the facts and figures regarding the career of the man known as “The Dutch Knight.”

30: Age of de Ridder, who was born on Sept. 7, 1990. At that time, the movie “Ghost” was No. 1 at the domestic box office, while “Blaze of Glory” by Jon Bon Jovi topped the Billboard Charts.

14: Professional victories for de Ridder, who has yet to taste defeat in mixed martial arts competition. The record includes five victories under the One Championship banner for the Combat Brothers representative.

12: Triumphs inside the distance for de Ridder, who has finished nine of his foes by way of submission and three via knockout or technical knockout.

75: Time, in seconds, of de Ridder’s quickest documented professional triumph, which came when he rendered Fan Rong unconscious with a brabo choke 1:15 into the opening frame at One Championship “Hero’s Ascent” on Jan. 25, 2019.

One Championship “Full Blast” airs Friday in more than 150 countries on televisions, tablets, computers and mobile devices at 8:30 a.m. ET.

2-0: Record against Sang. In addition to his aforementioned triumph against “The Burmese Python” at One on TNT 4, de Ridder also bested the Sanford MMA representative at One Championship “Inside the Matrix” on Oct. 30, 2020 to claim the organization’s middleweight crown.

21:34: Difference in time between de Ridder’s first triumph over Sang and their rematch. While “The Dutch Knight” went the distance against Sang at One on TNT 4, he was able to submit the Myanmar native with a rear-naked choke 3:26 into Round 1 of their bout at One “Inside the Matrix.”

2,910: Days since de Ridder’s professional debut, a triangle-choke submission of Marco Wuest at Gladiators Fighting Championship 2 on June 1, 2013.
