Brandon Vera to defend heavyweight title against Arjan Bhullar at ONE: ‘Code of Honor’
Vera (16-8-0-1) suffered the first defeat of his post UFC career at ONE: ‘Century’ last October. He was stopped by Aung La Nsang in the second round of their light heavyweight title fight.
Bhullar (10-1) was also in action at ONE: ‘Century’. He faced former title challenger Cerilli on his promotional debut and won the fight by unanimous decision, earning an immediate title shot.
Vera fought 16 times for the UFC. He won eight of those bouts and lost seven with one declared a ‘no contest’ while facing the likes of Randy Couture, Jon Jones, Mauricio Rua, Fabricio Werdum, Tim Sylvia and Frank Mir.
Bhullar does not have quite as many big names on his resume but he is nine years younger than Vera. The Canadian fought three times for the UFC, winning two of those bouts.
ONE: ‘Code of Honor’ will be the second event the promotion has held at the MOA Arena this year. There will also be several ONE Hero Series Philippines fight cards in 2020.
