ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC) signed two of the most talented fighters in Mixed Martial Arts today who rank among the best in the world, Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes and Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki. Fernandes is the DREAM Bantamweight Champion and the former DREAM Featherweight Champion. He is on a three-fight win streak and will be looking to extend it to four when he debuts at ONE FC: Pride of a Nation in Manila on August 31. Aoki is one of Asia’s most popular fighters and is known as the grandmaster of flying submissions. Aoki owns nineteen of his thirty career victories by submission and will be on a mission to make it twenty on August 31. CEO of ONE Fighting Championship Victor Cui stated “We are thrilled to have Bibiano and Aoki added to the growing list of top fighters in ONE FC’s Bantamweight and Lightweight divisions. Both fighters keep moving forward and never stop looking to finish their opponents in spectacular fashion. Bibiano and Aoki will make their debut in the ONE FC cage in Manila on 31 August and I’m positive that fight fans around the world are looking forward to it as much as I am.” Fernandes has an impressive 11-3 record with most of his fights finishing via TKO or submission and is ranked as one of the top five fighters in the Bantamweight division. His last victory in DREAM against former WEC Bantamweight Champion Antonio Banuelos, ended by TKO in just 1:21 seconds of round one. Aoki is the former DREAM Lightweight Champion and has beaten the likes of Tatsuya Kawajiri, Marcus Aurelio and Rich Clementi. He holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo which has earned him a reputation as one of the best submission specialists in the sport of MMA. The “Grandmaster of Flying Submissions” is excited to showcase his skills to his fans when he debuts at ONE FC: Pride of a Nation. For more updates, log on to www.ONEFC.com
