ONE Special Feature | Kevin Belingon & Bibiano Fernandes’ Humble Beginnings

Bantamweight greats Kevin Belingon and Bibiano Fernandes both grew up with very little, but made it to the very top of their sport despite their early suffering. Belingon was born and bred in the mountainous Ifugao province, emerging from an impoverished childhood to become one of the core members of the famed Team Lakay. Fernandes, meanwhile, was reared in the malaria-ridden Amazon jungle before moving out to the Brazilian city of Manaus. Mixed martial arts would offer them a path to salvation, and it was an opportunity both would take full advantage of, earning their way onto the global stage and capturing ONE gold.
