ONE FC: Bibiano Fernandes set to Dominate?

When fight fans heard that Asia's best MMA event One Fighting Championship has just signed Bibiano Fernandes into its ever growing stable of quality fighters, fight fans around the Asian region were ecstatic.

These who have heard of Bibiano know that he is a multiple time BJJ world champion, as well as as Pan American and Brazil Nationals. He is also a veteran in MMA events in Japan, having won the DREAM 2011 Grand Prix and is the current DREAM bantamweight champion.Bibiano has fought tough guys like Urijah Faber, Kid Yamamoto, Joachim Hansen and Hiroyuki Takaya, among others.

So what can this guy bring to the table at ONE FC? He is set to make his grand debut at the upcoming ONE FC event in Manila on 31 August 2012. We don't know who his opponent will be yet, but it's safe to say that whoever they put in front of Fernandes, it is very likely that his opponent will either get submitted or knocked out!

So who do you think Fernandes should fight in Manila? Will he be at bantamweight or featherweight? I do hope he competes as a featherweight as there will be many many tough opponents for him. I would like to see Fernandes take on Eric "the Natural" Kelly, Bae Young Kwon or Kawajiri. Definitely interesting prospects.

Whatever it is, I'm sure Bibiano Fernandes will make a great impact and become the next Asian MMA superstar!

See how Fernandes finishes Joe Warren with a superb armbar from the guard (at around 4:15)  here:
