The Interim bantamweight champion of ONE FC, Bibiano Fernandes, is calling for a featherweight showdown with the ONE FC lightweight champion Shinya Aoki, who has already teased an eventual drop down to the featherweight class.
“Shinya Aoki is dropping to 145 pounds, so let’s see,” Bibiano said.”I’m here. If they offer me that fight, I’m always open to challenges. If they want that fight, I’m in.”
Aoki (33-6, 22 SUB) acquired the ONE FC title in his last outing in April with a slick second round submission finish of Kotetsu Boku.
Fernandes (14-3, 5 SUB), a former featherweight fighter, picked up the ONE FC Interim bantamweight crown in his last fight with Koetsu Okazaki in May.
What are the chances of the bantamweight champion meeting the lightweight champion?
