ONE Championship named its most recent show “Lights Out” and former UFC bantamweight John Lineker lived up to the billing, hammering fellow Brazilian Bibiano Fernandes in Singapore to capture the promotion’s 135-pound title.
Lineker improves to 35-9 with 17 knockouts while Fernandes falls to 24-5.
Elsewhere on the card, Than Le shut off a few lights of his own, pounding jiu-jitsu ace Gary Tonon into oblivion with a brutal right hand. Le retained his featherweight title and improved to 13-2 with 12 knockouts while Tonon slipped to 6-1.
