ONE Championship held the official “ONE: Dawn of Valor” open workout at the Syena Martial Arts Center in Jakarta, Indonesia on October 22, 2019. It was attended by eight mixed martial artists including Priscilla “Thathie” Hertati Lumban Gaol, 31, of Jakarta.

The “ONE: Dawn of Valor” fight night will take place at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta on October 25, 2019. One of the matches on the card is a women’s atomweight match between Gaol and Bozhena “Toto” Antoniyar, 24, of Yangon, Myanmar.

“Competing in Jakarta again is a blessing,” Gaol stated. “It always is and I’m really happy to be performing again in front of my home country and fans.”

 

“I believe that a win here will put me on track to becoming a top contender in the ONE women’s atomweight division so this will be a really big match for me,” the Indonesian MMA fighter continued. “I have worked and trained hard for this and I am ready to give myself and my country the victory.”

Born in Indonesia on May 16, 1988, Gaol was 17 years old when she started her training in wushu. She went on to win an Indonesian National Wushu Championship, a local boxing title and a bronze medal at the Wushu World Championship.

“ONE: Dawn of Valor” marks the 11th outing of Gaol in ONE Championship. She holds a professional MMA record of 6 wins and 4 losses.

Antoniyar and Gaol’s countrymen Eko Roni Saputra, 27, Stefer “The Lion” Rahardian, 32, and Adrian “Papua Badboy” Mattheis, 26, also participated in the “ONE: Dawn of Valor” open workout along with her. Also present during the event were reigning ONE Welterweight World Champion Zebaztian “The Bandit” Kadestam, 28, of Sweden, Kiamrian “Brazen” Abbasov, 26, of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and Kaji “Alpha” Ebin, 26, of Manila, Philippines.

 

In the main event of “ONE: Dawn of Valor,” Abbasov will challenge Kadestam. In the co-main event, ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Champion Regian “The Immortal” Eersel, 25, of the Netherlands defends his title against countryman Nieky “The Natural” Holzken, 34, in a highly anticipated rematch.
