One Championship announced early Friday that Luis Santos will take on Rafael Silva in the main event of One “Tribe of Warriors” which is set for Feb. 20 at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Santos is unbeaten in eight bouts since 2013, with his lone blemish during that time a no contest against Ben Askren at One Championship 26. In that bout, the Brazilian was deemed unable to continue after an inadvertent eye poke ended the welterweight championship contest last April. “Sapo” has competed in 72 professional MMA bouts over the course of a career that began in 2000, posting a 61-9-1 overall mark.
Silva, a native of Portugal, recently bounced back from a two-fight losing skid by toppling Abdulmajid Magomedov via second-round guillotine choke in a smaller Pankration show last November. “The Machine” is 40-15 as a pro, including 22 victories by way of submission.
Also set for One “Tribe of Warriors: is a showdown between Vincent Latoel and Kotetsu Boku, while Mario Satya Wirawan will take on Yohan Mulia Legowo.
Additionally, Anthony Engelen will tango with Rocky Batolbatol; Marcin Prachnio will fight Alexandre Machado; Joetsu Okazaki will lock horns with Andrew Leone; Angela Lee will face Rebecca Heintzman; Bashir Ahmad will oppose Jimmy Yabo; Djatmiko Waluyo will challenge Trestle Tan; and Jerome S.
