Brandon Vera ONE Championship One FC

Almost a year after seizing the ONE Championship heavyweight title, Brandon Vera will be making his first title defense against Hideki Sekine in the main event of ONE: Age of Domination.

The news was announced by the promotion on Thursday.

Since being released from the UFC back in 2013, Vera has gone 2-0 in the Asian MMA promotion ONE Championship, capturing heavyweight gold in his last fight. Vera defeated Paul Cheng in just 26 seconds to win the inaugural heavyweight title in December 2015. The 39-year-old Vera is 14-7 and one no contest in his professional MMA career.

His opponent, Sekine, is undefeated in his MMA career with seven wins. The Japanese fighter has finished his last two opponents in the first round. This title fight with Vera will mark Sekine’s ONE Championship debut.

ONE: Age of Domination event is set to take place on Dec. 2 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Manila, Philippines.
