Recently signed ONE Championship athlete Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez, 34, of the United States will attend “ONE: Heart of the Lion” on November 9, 2018 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The former Bellator MMA and UFC fighter will witness 10 matches, two of which are title bouts.
In the main event, ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela “Unstoppable” Lee, 22, of Singapore will challenge ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan, 30, of China. In the co-main event, ONE Interim Bantamweight World Champion Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon, 30, of the Philippines will challenge ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes, 38, of Brazil.
“Both men are hungry to win,” ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong said of Fernandes and Belingon. “It’s going to be an epic clash of wills in both contests. We will also have the latest signee of ONE Championship, Eddie Alvarez, as a special guest at the event.”
Alvarez will watch how Xiong tries to foil Lee’s attempt to make history and become the first female mixed martial arts superstar to hold two division titles simultaneously. Chatri said “ONE: Heart of the Lion” is trending to be “the greatest evening of martial arts in Asian history.”
“Two historic world champion vs world champion superbouts are set to take place inside the ONE Championship cage,” the ONE Championship chairman and CEO stated. “At the end of the day, it’s the fans who truly emerge as winners, as there should be no shortage of action on 9 November. Singapore will once again play host to a thrilling night of action, led by our favorite ONE Championship superstars.”
Chatri has yet to announce the details on Alvarez’s ONE Championship debut. Meanwhile, watch Alvarez’s recent interview with Ariel Helwani here:
