The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), put together another spectacular event at the Istora Senayan. The bustling Indonesian capital of Jakarta played host to ONE: FOR HONOR, which featured the absolute best in local and international martial arts talent. In the main event, England’s Jonathan Haggerty scored a huge upset, capturing the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Championship with a unanimous decision victory over Sam-A Gaiyanghadao.
