Iranian mixed martial artist Amir Aliakbari joins ONE Championship

ONE Championship continues to find talent all over the world. In the latest move, four Iranian athletes have put pen to paper and inked contracts with the world’s largest martial arts organization.

Among those signings are a Wrestling World Champion and young guns looking to make an instant impression.

Take a moment to get more familiar with the latest additions to the ONE roster.

Amir Aliakbari

Greco-Roman Wrestling World Champion Amir Aliakbari is entering the promotion as an immediate threat in the heavyweight ranks.

The talented grappler has a 10-1 mixed martial arts record, is on a four-bout winning streak, and has a 70 percent finishing rate to his credit.

Aliakbari is known for his heavy hands and dominant ground game, and he is ready to take the next step-up in The Home Of Martial Arts.

The Iranian hopes to make his ONE debut later in 2020.

Masoud Safari

Masoud Safari steps onto the global stage with an undefeated mixed martial arts record.

Safari, who owns a 6-0-1 slate, has steadily been growing his game on the Iranian regional circuit and has become one of the top athletes in the Middle East.

The Iranian will try to continue his string of success as he eyes ONE World Title gold.

Mehdi Barghi

Mehdi Barghi is a light heavyweight juggernaut who can finish a match in a moment’s notice.

The powerful martial artist, who owns a 6-2 record, has four first-round stoppage victories to his credit and hopes to have even more in The Home Of Martial Arts.

Ali Fouladi

Bringing his talents to ONE Warrior Series will be Ali Fouladi. The undefeated Iranian will try to make his way through ONE’s developmental league to earn a spot on the main roster.

Fouladi has already shown his well-rounded abilities by finishing bouts with both a knockout and a submission on the regional circuit. The up-and-comer will have his chance to stake his claim and work his way onto the global stage.
