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.
Turkish lightweight contender Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev brought the crowd to its feet after making quick work of Russian dynamo Timofey Nastyukhin with a scintillating knockout victory in the first round. Arslanaliev weathered Nastyukhin’s early striking onslaught as his opponent came out with a lot of power behind his shots. The tide dramatically turned into Arslanaliev’s favor moments later, after he caught a kick and tripped Nastyukhin to the ground before finishing the bout with a series of piston-like punches for the knockout.
