The ONE Championship (ONE) has electrified Stadium Istora with yet another night of world-class martial arts action after receiving ONE: WARRIOR'S DREAM, which featured the absolute best in local and international martial arts talent.
In the main event of ONE: WARRIOR'S DREAM, Zebaztian "The Bandit" Kadestam fully realized his dream of becoming a mixed martial arts world champion, preventing Tyler McGuire from the United States from capturing the vacant Welterweight World Championship.
From bell to bell, Kadestam chose McGuire apart with his impressive superiority, shaking his American opponent with thunderous kicks and solid hands. Although McGuire was consistent in his relentless pursuit of falls during most of the match, Kadestam maintained his composure and demonstrated great defensive defense.
In the final moments of the fifth round, Kadestam gave up a right hand to knock down McGuire, taking home the World Middleweight Championship.
In the co-main event, multiple kickboxing world champion, Nieky "The Natural" Holzken, announced his arrival on the stage of the ONE Super Series with a knockout victory of Brazilian Cosmo "Good Boy" Alexandre.
The Dutch striker punished Alexander with a handful of punches and kicks, leading to a pair of knockdowns in the first round. It was Holzken's hands that proved to be the difference, however, as he unloaded a combination in the closing seconds of the second round, which was crowned by a well placed uppercut that turned off Alexander's lights for the spectacular debut of the ONE Championship.
Favorite fan of Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol made a dominant performance to defeat Angelina "D & # 39; Explorer" Sabanal of the Philippines by unanimous decision.
Feeding the energy of the noisy crowd in Jakarta, Gaol chose Sabanal in the stand-up department while also staying a step ahead when the action went to the ground. In the third round, Sabanal attempted a last effort to steal the win with a finish, but to no avail, while Gaol waited for the convincing decision.
Dutch-Indonesian martial artist Anthony "The Archangel" Engelen had another quick night by finishing Jimmy "The Silencer" Yabo of the Philippines with a first-round submission victory.
Just a week after his captivating knockout victory in Singapore, Engelen showed his game on the ground this time, when he knocked Yabo down with relative ease. Once on the mat, Engelen dominated as he quickly grabbed Yabo's back and held the kills, forcing the Filipino to leave in seconds.
Tatsumitsu "The Sweeper" Wada of Japan scored their first win inside the ONE cage, sending Eugene Toquero of the Philippines in the first round. Wada quickly began working on the opening bell, getting a series of kicks in the legs as he connected in a handful of punches. The Japanese grappler showed his dangerous finishing skills, taking the back of Toquero and forcing the tap from a killer.
