MANILA, Philippines – Reece McLaren will have his shot at Bibiano Fernandes’ ONE Championship bantamweight title as the Filipino-Australian fighter is set to square off with the Brazilian champion in the co-headliner of the “Age of Domination” card on December 2.
Fernandes (19-3) is riding high on an impressive 11-fight winning streak and captured the undisputed ONE Championship bantamweight belt with a 5-round verdict over Soo Chul Kim in October 2013.
The 36-year-old Brazilian has defended his gold-plated strap 4 times, including a first-round submission victory over Filipino stalwart Kevin Belingon last January.
In the other corner, McLaren (9-3) has won two straight bouts under the banner of the Singapore-based mixed martial arts organization and holds notable triumphs over the likes of Filipino-American sensation Mark Striegl and Tajik combatant Muin Gafurov.
McLaren, 25, has only gone distance twice in his professional career, owning 5 submission wins and two knockout victories.
ONE: Age of Domination is set to take place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City. – Rappler.com
