About

Halil Amir is one of the latest MMA stars from Turkey who now calls ONE Championship his home.

The 28-year-old who hails from Antalya – a Turkish city on the Mediterranean coast – will aim to put his country on the martial arts map with the qualities that have seen him make a name for himself across the globe.

Since making his professional debut in 2016, Amir has outclassed top opposition in Europe and the Middle East. He brings an undefeated 7-0 record to the global stage, with six wins via knockout and a single one via first-round submission. His well-balanced traits, combined with his passion to become the best, have been a few of the key factors that have led him to success.

The Turkish star hones his craft at Runner Fight Club in his hometown with an experienced set of coaches guiding him. They have helped Amir develop his explosiveness and knockout power in the striking department, and they’ve also helped to round out his ground game. These skills make the Antalya native a tough opponent for anyone competing in ONE Championship’s lightweight division. 

Amir will look to prove that against former ONE Lightweight World Title challenger Timofey Nastyukhin at ONE on Prime Video 2 this September 30, and if he defeats the Russian contender and continues to pick up a few more victories, he could find himself challenging for the gold in the very near future.
