Three ONE Championship belts could conceivably have changed hands by the end of next month. Bibiano Fernandes and Adriano Moraes both make title defenses in May while Aung La Nsang and Alexandre Machado fight for the vacant light heavyweight strap next week.

La Nsang (21-10-0-1) who also happens to be the reigning middleweight champion has the opportunity to win a second title in Yangon on February 23rd. He faces Brazilian Alexandre Machado (8-2) at ONE: “Quest for Gold.”

Three weeks later Adriano Moraes (17-2) will be defending his flyweight title against Reece Mclaren ( 10-5) at ONE: “Visions of Victory” in Kuala Lumpur. The Australian’s main claim to fame is having nearly beaten Fernandes, he dropped a split decision to the Brazilian in 2016.

Fernandes (21-3) has won 13 fights in a row but faces in form fellow champion Martin Nguyen (10-1) in Bangkok. The promotion’s current featherweight and lightweight champion will challenge for the Brazilian’s bantamweight belt on March 24th.
