Complete Card Announced For ONE: For Honor In Jakarta This May

Along with a Muay Thai title fight, former UFC title contender Yushin Okami will also make his debut with ONE Championship this May.

Officials have released the complete card for ONE: For Honor with flyweight Muay Thai champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao defending his title against Jonathan Haggerty.

The card takes place from Jakarta, Indonesia on May 3.

Over the course of a stellar 25-year career spanning more than 400 bouts, multiple-time Muay Thai World Champion Sam-A has captured titles across several weight classes, and is now known as one of the very best Muay Thai kickboxers of all time.

Haggerty quickly racked up multiple accolades in the sport of Muay Thai as an amateur becoming a three-time English Champion, three-time British Champion, and winning a European title as well. As a professional, his resume is still growing, but he has dominated almost everyone he has faced to date, winning almost all of his bouts via knockout while facing the sport’s elite. Now he gets the chance to challenge Muay Thai legend Sam-A Gaiyanghadao for the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Title.

Former UFC title contender Yushin Okami will make his promotional debut, as he battles Kiamrian Abbasov.

Okami is one of the most prolific martial artists to emanate from Japan over the last two decades. With a career that began in 2002, Okami has competed in numerous weight classes – from light heavyweight all the way down to welterweight – in various Japanese promotions including Pride and Pancrase.

A Prime Selection GP Welterweight Champion, Abbasov was raised by a single mother in his hometown of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan’s capital city. There, he began his martial arts journey with Greco-Roman wrestling, and later added boxing to his arsenal.

The card will also feature Tetsuya Yamada vs. Marat Gafurov, Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnon vs. Tyler Hardcastle, Hertati Lumban Gaol vs. Nou Srey Pov, Thanh Le vs. Yusup Saadulaev, Sunoto vs. Paul Lumihi, Ayideng Jumayi vs. Dae Hwan Kim, Keanu Subba vs. Ryogo Takahashi and more.
