25 July 2013 – Singapore: ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC) returns to Indonesia on Friday, 13 September, with three additional bouts added to the event. Pakistani MMA pioneer Bashir Ahmad is set to clash with No-gi World Champion and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Bruno Pucci. Also, Dutch-Indonesian mixed martial artist Vincent Latoel will make his ONE FC debut opposite Dutch veteran Willy Ni in a Lightweight contest. Indonesian grappling champion Brianata Rosadhi has also stepped in to face Malaysia’s Raymond Tan in a contest set to reignite the rivalry between both countries.

CEO of ONE Fighting Championship™ Victor Cui stated, “ONE FC will be back in Jakarta on 13 September with a fight card that is sure to get the adrenaline pumping for the passionate Indonesian fight fans. Bruno Pucci and Bashir Ahmad are two of the most electrifying Featherweights in Asia and their encounter will deliver non-stop action. Indonesian standouts Vincent Latotel and Brianata Rosadhi are exciting fighters who always come ready to put on a show and I’m sure they will be looking to give the home fans something to cheer about. Thousands of fans in attendance and the millions watching live around the world are set for another evening of world-class MMA featuring the best in Asia.”

Bashir Ahmad is credited as being the pioneer of MMA in Pakistan. He is undefeated in his professional MMA career, with his last win coming in an exhilarating back-and-forth slugfest against Thai fighter Shannon Wiratchai at ONE FC: KINGS & CHAMPIONS that saw Ahmad get his hands raised at the end of three rounds. Always ready to stand and strike, he will look to keep the fight standing against a grappling specialist like Bruno Pucci.

Bruno Pucci is a two-time grappling No-Gi World Champion and a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt. Since transitioning to mixed martial arts, he is currently undefeated with two impressive submission victories against established Brazilian opponents. He now trains out of the prestigious Evolve MMA gym alongside Muay Thai, Boxing and BJJ world champions and is looking to make his mark in the competitive Asian MMA scene.

Vincent Latoel is a Dutch-Indonesian kickboxer that hails from the famed Golden Glory gym. He is a veteran with more than 30 fights on his record and will look to make his mark in Asia for the first time. With roots in the Indonesian state of Moluccas, Latoel will look to give the 15,000 Indonesian fans in attendance something to cheer about with a victory.

Willy Ni is a Shooto veteran from the Netherlands. He has faced some of the best Lightweights in Europe, including British slugger Dan Hardy. He is especially proficient with his grappling skills, having finished nine of his opponents by submission. Having been out of action for four years, he is relishing the opportunity to get back into competition and will be looking to notch another win over an experienced opponent.

Brianata Rosadhi will step in to replace the injured Stefer Rahardian, who had to withdraw from the planned bout against Raymond Tan. Rosadhi is a Wushu champion who has also impressed in the grappling circuit. With a diverse arsenal of skills, Rosadhi is relishing the opportunity and will be looking to use his versatility to catapult him to a victory. Bragging rights will be at stake as he takes on Raymond Tan from Malaysia. Indonesia and Malaysia have a storied sporting rivalry that will be reignited in this contest.

Raymond Tan is a founding member of Penang Top Team and ranked as one of the best Bantamweights in Malaysia. He initially began training in Taekwondo before he moved into mixed martial arts as he grew older. He will be looking to use his long reach to devastating effect with crisp striking and signature kicks when he faces Brianata Rosadhi on 13 September in Jakarta.
