Lara Fernandez Signs With ONE Championship

WBC & ISKA Muay Thai Champ, Lara Fernandez, Signs With ONE Championship

ONE Championship keeps getting better and better. Announced today, WBC and ISKA Muay Thai Champion, Lara Fernandez, has signed a two year contract with ONE Championship. The news was broke by Beyond Kickboxing today and confirmed by Fernandez on her Twitter account.

Who is Lara Fernandez?

As mentioned at the top, Lara Fernandez is a Muay Thai champion for the WBC at flyweight and ISKA at Super Featherweight. She hails from Spain and has competed in kickboxing as well. As is common in ONE Championship, I look for Fernandez to compete in both Muay Thai and kickboxing.

Lara Fernandez started fighting at 14 and quickly rose up the ranks. She’s fought in Enfusion and lost a bid for the title against Iman Barlow. In ISKA, Fernandez defeated Kelly Denoiko to win her title in November of 2019. She then defended her title against Li Mingrui as well.

Her next achievement was for the WBC title where she defeated Grace Spicer at Combat Fight Series 4. She also went on to fight in Lion Fight in 2021.

Adding Lara Fernandez to the roster is the latest addition to the commitment ONE Championship has had to women’s martial arts. Alread on the roster, you have Smilla Sundell, ONE’s youngest ever champion, Stamp Fairtex, Xiong Jing Nan, Angela Lee, and Kai Ting Chuang.

The Fernandez signing is just the latest in a slew of signings by ONE Championship. Recently, the Ruotolo brothers signed to compete in grappling and to transition to mixed martial arts for the promotion. There’s been Mikey Musumechi, Danielle Kelly, David Branch, Buchecha, Andre Galvao, and more have all signed with ONE Championship in the last year. The signings look to be ramping up as well, especially in grappling and women’s martial arts.
