Multiple-time Indonesia Bantamweight Champion Abro Fernandes first began his martial arts journey with kempo as a teenager to get in better shape. After training for a few years and competing extensively across boxing, kempo, and grappling, he decided to test himself even further, and made his professional mixed martial arts debut in a regional Indonesian promotion.
Fernandes has since built an incredibly successful cage career, even winning an eight-man tournament to claim a championship belt before defending it thrice. In fact, he did so with six straight stoppages to take an undefeated record into his ONE Championship debut.
He has long dreamed of competing in the ONE Championship cage, and intends to enjoy his time in the limelight now that he has finally made it onto the global stage. His goal from the day he first set foot in the cage was to become a World Champion, and it is a goal he still tirelessly pursues today.
