Representing Bali MMA, Elipitua Siregar, 21, of Jakarta, Indonesia has earned his third victory in ONE Championship. He was one of the winners at “ONE: Warrior’s Dream,” which marked his third bout in the Singapore-based martial arts organization.

Featuring three ONE Super Series striking contests and 11 mixed martial arts matches, “ONE: Warrior’s Dream” took place on November 17, 2018 at the Stadium Istora in Jakarta, Indonesia. In the eighth bout of the evening, Siregar competed in an MMA match against Muhammad “The Spider” Imran, 26, of Gujar Khan, Punjab, Pakistan at a catch weight of 58.1 kg.

Siregar managed to keep his unblemished professional MMA record intact after picking up a second round submission victory over Imran, who is representing Pakido Martial Arts Club. After surviving a strong opening round from the Pakistani fighter, the Jakarta native put his grappling skills on display in the second round.

Right after taking Imran opponent down, Siregar transitioned into full mount. Moments later, the Bali MMA fighter took his Pakistani opponent’s back and locked in a rear naked choke to force the tap.

Losing to Siregar downgraded Imran’s professional MMA record to 5 wins and 3 losses. On the other hand, the Indonesian fighter now has 3 wins and 0 loss.

The undefeated Indonesian MMA fighter is also a national wrestling champion. He holds a professional wrestling record of 28 wins and 6 losses.

On May 12, 2018, Siregar made his ONE Championship debut at “ONE: Grit and Glory.” He submitted his fellow Indonesian fighter Dodi “The Maung” Mardian, 34, via rear-naked choke in the first round.

On September 8, 2018, Siregar returned to the ONE Championship cage facing Phat “Ice” Soda, 29, of Cambodia at “ONE: Beyond the Horizon.” The Indonesian fighter knocked out his Cambodian opponent via punches and elbows in the first round.
