The fight card for this mixed martial arts showdown in Jakarta spells a knockout event
You don’t have to be a mixed martial arts fan to appreciate sheer grit and athleticism. And there’s no better arena to witness this display than at an epic showdown taking place in Jakarta on 17 November.
The stage is set at the Istora Stadium for one man to claim the vacant Welterweight World Championship. The line up includes the best of local and international martial arts athletes, with 12 match-ups on the fight card. We reckon these three fights alone are worth the flight.
Tyler McGuire versus Zebaztian Kadestam
The marquee event you’ve been waiting for: McGuire and Kadestam go up against each other for the Welterweight World Championship. The undefeated American McGuire has an impressive 11-0 professional record, but opponent Zebaztian will put him through his paces, having notably beaten high profile contenders Luis Santos and Agilan Thani.
Nieky Holzhen versus Cosmo Alexandre
Holzken makes his ONE debut in this kickboxing showdown. This Dutch athlete has the numbers behind his name to back him up: over 100 wins over several martial arts disciplines and almost 50 knockouts in kickboxing. But opponent Alexandre won’t be cowed – another multiple world championship title winner, he’s made a name for being one of the best to come out of Brazil.
Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol versus Angelie Sabanal
Both women may be fairly new to the martial arts scene (Lumban Gaol debuted in 2017 and Sabanal in 2018), but they have since proven themselves as promising names to watch. Indonesian dynamite Lumban Gaol is a former wushu bronze medallist at the Southeast Asian Games, while Sabanal burst on the scene with a unanimous three-round win in her cage debut.
