ONE Championship's mixed martial arts blockbuster ONE: HEART OF THE LION at the Singapore Indoor Stadium has concluded. The headline attraction featured a World Champion versus World Champion title unification rematch, as bantamweight king Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes collided with interim titleholder Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon.

Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon has successfully usurped Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes' title to become the ONE Bantamweight World Champion. At a press conference on Wednesday, Belingon reiterated that "he was a hundred percent ready and confident" and this win is proof that his training since their last showdown has indeed paid off.
