Bibiano’s reign ends at the Heart of the Lion main event.

Bantam Weight Champion, Bibiano Fernandes

Once again, I was fortunate enough to attend/shoot the ONE Championships – Heart of the Lion press event as well as the main event in Singapore.

The main event bout saw 8 year reigning Bantam Weight Champ, Bibiano Fernandez from Brazil defending his title against Interim Bantam Weight Champ, Kevin Belingon from the Phillipines. I found this fight very exciting as there were plenty of punches, kicks, grappling and a bit of blood! If you want to watch the fight, here’s a link on Youtube.

The rest of the fights were entertaining and all had enough action to satisfy the fans. No booing at this event, unlike the the previous event (the match between Christian Lee and Martin Nyugen).

All you fight fans already know the results and details of this event, so I’ll just leave you with some images I shot. If you don’t know the results, here’s the results page on ONE Championship’s website
