1798692_10152320708575853_1180052585_nTop Trinidadian and Caribbean Mixed Martial Artist Dwayne Hinds will be making his ONE Fighting Championship debut on November 7th at the Singapore Indoor Stadium (Available on Pay-per-view). Hinds was signed  earlier this year and was called to the cage after a recent two month training stint in Thailand sponsored by The Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago SporttKee-Chanona Ltd. and Rough House.

Hinds was originally scheduled to face un-defeated fighter Warren De Reuck(6-0) from South Africa but was cancelled after De Reuck sustained an injury and will now face off against Christophe Van Dijck (6-1) of Belgium. Van Dijck is a multi-time national judo champion with dynamic takedowns and strong grappling.
