ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao acquired his prestigious belt after he stopped Joseph “The Hurricane” Lasiri in The Home Of Martial Arts’ first ever Muay Thai bout, and then finished Sergio “Samurai” Wielzen in the first ONE Super Series World Title match.

He also entered the organization with a slew of other accolades, including Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai World Titles in multiple divisions, and a reputation as one of the sport’s greatest ever athletes. 

He will defend his ONE World Championship in the main event of ONE: FOR HONOR.

Jonathan “The General” Haggerty’s 14-1 record is dwarfed by the 366-46-9 slate of the man he will challenge for the gold in Jakarta, but he is an elite athlete, and he believes his youth, power, and hunger will take him to victory against the 35-year-old.

The 22-year-old already has seasoning at the elite level and holds the ISKA and Roar Combat League Muay Thai World Titles. He showcased his class on the global stage when he defeated WBC Muay Thai World Champion Joseph Lasiri in his ONE debut.

A win in Friday’s featured bout will be the greatest of his career and earn him his highest honor.

Marat “Cobra” Gafurov is the only man on this list to have won gold thanks to his grappling skills, and that came about thanks to an incredible run of submissions.

The man from Dagestan joined ONE with an undefeated 9-0 record, and went on a tear to win the ONE Featherweight World Title, and then defend his crown three times.

He hit six rear-naked chokes in a row, and his list of victories includes current World Champion Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen, Ev “E.T.” Ting and Narantungalag “Tungaa” Jadambaa.

In Indonesia, Gafurov will face off against Tetsuya “MMA Fantasista” Yamada in an attempt to start a run of victories to take him back to the top of the division.

Nou Srey Pov looked incredible in her dominant ONE Championship debut when she defeated Rika “Tinydoll” Ishige after three rounds of intense action.

Though she was new to the global stage for martial arts, her striking excellence came as no surprise thanks to her history as a Kun Khmer World Champion.

In that contest, she also showcased some good ground acumen, and she believes she will need to put on a complete performance when she takes on Indonesia’s own Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol inside the Istora Senayan.
