The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), held another unforgettable evening in Indonesia’s bustling capital city of Jakarta, featuring the best and the brightest in the constantly-expanding world of martial arts. ONE: CONQUEST OF HEROES sent shockwaves of excitement through the packed Jakarta Convention Center as the card featured a series of compelling bouts, punctuated by a highly-anticipated championship rematch. In the main event, Joshua Pacio of the Philippines defeated grappling wizard Yoshitaka Naito of Japan to be crowned the new ONE Strawweight World Champion.
Local martial arts star Adrian “Papua Badboy” Mattheis turned in a spectacular performance to place himself back in the winner’s circle, stopping countryman Angelo “The Unicorn King” Bimoadji in the first round of a scheduled three-round strawweight contest. After a brief grappling exchange, the two men found themselves back on their feet trading strikes. Mattheis then unloaded a left hook, uppercut combination to end matters midway through the opening frame. Referee Yuji Shimada had no choice but to call a halt to the contest after Bimoadji was out on his feet.
