Fernandes successfully defends ONE FC title

A sold-out crowd at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila were treating on Friday to an unforgettable night of mixed martial arts action at ONE FC: Rise of Heroes.

The 10-bout card culminated in a successful ONE FC bantam-weight world title defence for Brazil’s Bibiano Fernandes, who displayed both grappling and striking superiority en route to a unanimous decision win over Masakatsu Ueda of Japan.

Filipino fans were given even bigger reasons to cheer with all five fighters winning their respective bouts including a points victory for Eduard Folayang against Japan’s Kotestu Boku and a third round stoppage in favour of female cage fighter Ana Julaton over Aya Saeid Saber of Egypt.
