Bibiano Fernandes to Defend Bantamweight Crown at One Championship ‘Age of Domination’

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 25, 2016

Reigning One Championship 135-pound titlist Bibiano Fernandes will defend his belt against Reece McLaren on Dec. 2.

The Singapore-based promotion announced that the title bout will take place at the event entitled "Age of Domination" at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila. The card will also see Brandon Vera put his heavyweight title on the line against Hideki Sekine.

Fernandes enters the bout on an 11-fight winning streak. The former two-division Dream champion captured undisputed bantamweight gold with a five-round verdict over Soo Chul Kim in October 2013. He has since defended the title four times, including a first-round submission of Kevin Belingon at One Championship 37 on Jan. 23.

A native of Queensland, Australia, the 25-year-old McLaren has won two straight under the One Championship banner and four in a row overall. In his most recent outing, “Lightning” garnered a unanimous decision victory over Muin Gafurov on April 15.
