Bibiano Fernandes is now 35-years-old, and firmly under ONE FC contract. Gone are the days where we thought he’d make a splash in the brand new UFC bantamweight division, and with each fight, he gets a little older. We have to accept him for who he is now – a ONE FC champ, who unfortunately is not fighting the best competition. Is he still fun to watch? Hell yeah. We love Bibiano, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s pretty much irrelevant.
Maybe this will change, maybe he’ll decide to move over to the UFC, but if he’s getting paid a worthwhile sum by ONE FC, why should he? This way, he doesn’t have to make $2,500 from the crappy Reebok sponsorship to fight some killer. It’s a rough world, this MMA fighting.
At least we get to see this fight sans commentary so we can hear each smack of his fists. Watch on.
