Indonesia will be one of the 14 countries that will be represented at “ONE: Conquest of Champions.” It is the fourth and last ONE Championship event in the Philippines in 2018.

Taking place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines, “ONE: Conquest of Champions” will feature eight MMA matches, two Muay Thai bouts and two kickboxing contests. In the first bout of the evening, Rudy “The Golden Boy” Agustian, 33, of Tangerang, Indonesia will compete in a mixed martial arts match in the flyweight division.

Born in Tangerang on September 03, 1985, Agustian is the only Indonesian fighter on the “ONE: Conquest of Champions” card. His opponent Asraful “Warrior” Islam, 22, of Dhaka, Bangladesh is also the sole representative of his country.

This will be the second outing of Agustian in ONE Championship. The Indonesian fighter made his promotional debut on October 26, 2018 at “ONE: Pursuit of Greatness” at the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar where he faced Kaji “Alpha” Ebin, 26, of Manila, Philippines.

Ebin replaced Islam, who was originally scheduled to face at “ONE: Pursuit of Greatness.” In the end, Agustian submitted his Filipino opponent via Americana.

Training out of Pitbull Academy in Tangerang, Agustian is a former Indonesian Flyweight Champion. Winning at “ONE: Pursuit of Greatness” improved his professional MMA record to 5 wins and 2 losses.

In the co-main event of “ONE: Conquest of Champions,” Eduard “Landslide” Folayang, 34, of Baguio City, Philippines and Amir Khan, 23, of Singapore will compete for the vacant ONE Lightweight World Championship. The Filipino contender formerly held the title, which was recently vacated by Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen, 29, of Australia and Vietnam, who is now the reigning ONE Featherweight World Champion.

In the main event, Brandon “The Truth” Vera, 41, of Manila, Philippines will defend his title as the reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion. His challenger will be Mauro “The Hammer” Cerilli, 35, of Terracina, Latina, Italy.
