Riski “King Kong” Umar of Indonesia should have kept his undefeated record if he did not lose to Khon Sichan of Cambodia at “ONE: Visions of Victory” on March 9, 2018 via split decision. It was the Cambodian fighter’s first ONE Championship win.

On September 16, 2017, Umar made his ONE Championship debut at the Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonessia at “ONE: Total Victory,” which also marked his professional MMA debut. He knocked out his fellow Indonesian fighter Adi Nugroho via punches at 2:00 of Round 1.

On January 20, 2018, Umar returned to the ONE Championship cage at the Jakarta Convention Center. He knocked out his fellow Indonesian fighter Eka “Egi Rozten” Aprilianto, 29, via punches at 4:20 of Round 1.

While Umar now has 2 wins and 1 loss, Khon now has 3 wins and 2 losses. The Cambodian contender made his ONE Championship debut on December 5, 2015 at “ONE: Kingdom of Khmer” at the Koh Pich Theatre in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he was submitted by his fellow Cambodian fighter Sim Bunsrun at 4:55 of Round 1.

“ONE: Visions of Victory” took place at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was headlined by hometown hero Gianni Subba, 25, of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Filipino-Australian Reece “Lightning” McLaren, 26, of Australia.
