On Friday, Oct. 18, ONE FC hosted its 11th event from Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The event streamed live via online pay-per-view.

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s bantamweight championship was unified as current champion Soo Chul Kim returned from injury to face interim title holder Bibiano Fernandes. Kim captured the 135-pound title with a second-round knockout of Leandro Issa last October, but had been out of action since. The Brazilian Fernandes claimed the interim belt in May with a lopsided decision win over Koetsu Okazaki.

Also on the card, the promotion’s lightweight champion, Shinya Aoki, made his featherweight debut as he took on American Cody Stevens, who was making his promotional debut. Aoki entered the contest having tasted defeat only once in the past three years—to former Bellator champion Eddie Alvarez—and has gone 3-0 in his first three bouts with ONE FC. Stevens, meanwhile, stepped into the cage having gone undefeated in 2013.

The rest of the card was full of Asia’s top prospects, including a number of bouts that pitted fighters from Singapore against fighters from Malaysia.

The 10-fight event kicked off at 7 p.m. local time (7 a.m. ET) for the price of $9.99 on LiveSport TV.
