A Muay Thai and taekwondo practitioner, Umar is unbeaten as a professional, honing his skills out of Bali MMA with other world-class talents. In his most recent contest, he needed just one round to knock out Eka “Egi Rozten” Aprilianto, 29, of Jakarta, Indonesia with punches.

Training out of Bali, Indonesia, Umar is set to return in his third appearance inside the ONE Championship cage, this time against Sichan. The latter is a striking specialist with dynamic martial arts background.

A former KWC 1 Flyweight Tournament Champion, Sichan also sports a kun khmer record of 29-9-3 in addition to his ONE Championship record of 2-2. Representing PROKOUT Top Team and Team Phnom Penh MMA, he returns to the ONE Championship cage to face a rising Indonesian star.
