Bibiano Fernandes is the current ONE FC interim bantamweight champion and doesn’t plan on leaving anytime soon. The current champion Soo Chul Kim has been out with a shoulder injury.
“I have a six-fight deal with ONE FC, and I’m going to keep putting on good fights and we’ll see what happens for me,” said Fernandes on MMA Junkie Radio. “I’m waiting to fight the champ at 135 and waiting for them to call me to say that’s the next fight.”
For his sixth win in a row, Fernandes became the interim champ with a decision over Koetsu Okazaki. It brings his overall record to 14-3 with a pair of wins for ONE FC.
Kim hasn’t fought since he won the belt in October.
There is no confirmed return date for either fighter or if the titles will be unified.
