On Tuesday, ONE Fighting Championships announced the signing of the former DREAM featherweight and current bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes, as well as the promotion's lightweight champion Shinya Aoki. This is the latest move from ONE FC that came as a result of their partnership with DREAM.
Fernandes – who was set to sign with the UFC and make his debut at UFC 149, but was unable to come to terms on a fight contract - will make his ONE FC debut at the "ONE FC: Pride of Nations" event, which is scheduled for August 31 in Manila, Phillipines. Aoki's debut is yet to be confirmed.
