Joshua “The Passion” Pacio is the current ONE Strawweight World Champion. The Team Lakay athlete took the belt from Yoshitaka “Nobita” Naito by unanimous decision after an epic five-round rematch at ONE: CONQUEST OF HEROES in September.

“The Passion” was a wushu champion before he made the switch to mixed martial arts, but he reached the pinnacle of his career by claiming the ONE belt to cap an outstanding 2018.

His first title defense comes in Saturday’s main event against Yosuke “Tobizaru” Saruta.

Japanese challenger Yosuke “Tobizaru” Saruta hoisted the Shooto Strawweight World Title aloft in October 2017, which set the wheels in motion for his move to the world’s largest martial arts organization.

“Tobizaru” defeated Ryuto Sawada with a fourth-round KO to claim the belt in an organization famed for producing high-class competitors in Japan.

He is on the hunt for his second World Title in Jakarta, as he challenges Pacio in a five-round strawweight encounter.

Alexi “Phet” Serepisos took up Muay Thai at the age of 15, and now the 24-year-old is a WMC I1 and IKBF World Champion.

The House Of Pain representative has become one of New Zealand’s top striking exports thanks to his technical style and powerful punching, and he will face Mongkolpetch Petchyindee Academy in his ONE debut.

Mongkolpetch Petchyindee Academy has won accolades throughout his 150-bout career, but the Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai World Title stands above them all as a showcase for his position among the elite.

The Thai has also been recognized for his exciting matches, too, as he also won the ‘Fight of the Year’ award at the Channel 7 Stadium in 2017.

He has promised to maintain his appetite for action against Serepisos.

Singapore’s Christian “The Warrior” Lee is one of the world’s leading featherweight mixed martial artists, but before he pursued his career in ONE, he was a six-time World Champion in Pankration – a similar sport which combines elements of striking, wrestling, and grappling.

Lee faces Edward “The Ferocious” Kelly in a rematch of their September 2018 duel at ONE: BEYOND THE HORIZON.

Joseph Lasiri

Joseph “The Hurricane” Lasiri won the WBC Super Bantamweight Muay Thai World Title in February 2017 with a victory in his homeland of Italy.

“The Hurricane” has faced tough opposition in ONE to date, and that will not change when he faces debuting Brit Jonathan Haggerty.

Robin “The Ilonggo” Catalan may have showcased his grappling prowess in recent ONE battles, but the Filipino entered the promotion as an IFMA Muay Thai World Champion.

Kotetsu “No Face” Boku became the first ever ONE Lightweight World Champion when he defeated Zorobabel Moreira by TKO back in 2012.
