ONE Championship returned to action Friday night from Singapore in an event that saw interim champ Kevin Belingon unify the ONE Bantamweight title with a split decision win over Bibiano Fernandes. The loss snaps an amazing 14 win streak for Fernandes and ends his five year run as a ONE champion.

Also in attendance were new ONE signees Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and Eddie Alvarez.
Spotted in the crowd: Sage Northcutt and his father sitting next to ONE chairman Chatri Sityodtong. Northcutt is testing the waters of free agency and may end up the next high profile signing for the Asian promotion.
In the main event of the prelims, BJJ powerhouse Garry Tonon earned another submission win, submitting Sung Jong Lee via guillotine at 2:04 of round two. Tonon is now 3-0 in MMA.
