On Saturday, Feb. 20, ONE Championship visited Jakarta, Indonesia, for the first of two events this year. The ONE Championship: Tribe of Warriors main event featured No. 1 welterweight contender Luis “Sapo” Santos returning to the promotion after a controversial weight-cutting debacle kept him out of a scheduled championship bout against Ben Askren at ONE Championship: Pride of Lions in November. Controversy aside, Santos brought a wealth of mixed martial arts experience into the headlining bout against fellow ONE veteran Rafael “The Machine” Silva.
In the co-main event of the evening, former ONE Championship lightweight champion Kotetsu “No Face” Boku returned to the ONE cage with momentum when he took on Netherlands-based fighter Vincent “Magnivincent” Latoel in a 158-pound catchweight bout. Both men were fighting for the seventh time in the circular cage, with both looking to move their record above .500 inside the promotion.
The action kicked off at 8 a.m. ET at ONEFC.com.
