Bob Sapp and Rolles Gracie almost came to blows at the ONE FC weigh-in last night. Referee Matt Hume had to step in to separate them and CEO / Owner Victor Cui was almost knocked to the ground in the ensuing melee.

Sapp continued to eyeball Gracie throughout the photo shoot and weighted in at 145 kg, a little leaner than normal, for a fight he says he has been training hard for and is determined to win.

All the other fighters made weight at the first attempt. The event is set to get underway at 7:30 pm local time with the undercard available free of charge and the main card costing just $10.

ONE Fighting Championship, Asia’s largest and most prestigious mixed martial arts event, is coming to Jakarta this Saturday night with a ten bout fight card featuring established international stars and some of the region’s best fighters.

All of the fighters made weight at the first attempt and are ready to do battle at ONE Fighting Championship ‘Battle of Heroes’ which will be the biggest MMA event in the history of Indonesian MMA. Taking place at the BritAma Arena, proceedings are scheduled to commence at 7:30 pm local time, with all the fights available for live viewing on the internet.

Headlining the event will be a lightweight contest between well rounded Japanese fighter Felipe Enomoto and Filipino kickboxing and Muay Thai specialist Ole Laursen, who is currently riding a five fight win streak.

Laursen has faced outstanding strikers such as Buakaw Por Pramuk, Masato and Andy Souwer throughout his decorated K-1 career. He believes that despite being out of action for over a year, he still has what it takes to score a devastating knock out over his Japanese opponent.

Enomoto has been the much busier fighter recently, and with strong boxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu skills, he will be looking to exploit any ring rust his Filipino counterpart may have. Laursen wants to mark his comeback with a KO and believes his superior striking will make the difference in this fight.

The main card also features a super heavyweight contest between 141kg K-1 veteran Bob "The Beast" Sapp and BJJ Champion Rolles Gracie. Although Gracie, from Brazil, is considerably smaller than the enormous American, he has earned a third degree BJJ black belt and will be looking for the sixth submission victory of his career.

Sapp has fought in major Japanese promotions such as Pride and Dream, and along with his vast experience, possesses incredible power and strength. It is no surprise that few of his fights make it past the first round. Sapp aims to test Gracie’s chin early on and is promising fight fans a fast and dramatic knock-out finish.

Unbeaten URCC Lightweight Champion Honorio Banario will be dropping down from lightweight to featherweight for the first time in his career to take on experienced Korean Bae Young Kwon. In another exciting bout, Cage Fighting Championship Bantamweight Champion Gustavo Falciroli is making his ONE FC debut against Korean prodigy Soo Chul Kim.

In a truly international fight affair, two welterweights will collide when Russian Combat Sambo Champion Rustam Khabilov goes up against BJJ Champion Rodrigo Ribeiro.

The undercard focuses exclusively on fighters originally from or currently based in Asia. Indonesia’s own hero Victorio "Indra" Senduk, a SEA Games Wushu Silver Medalist, will be taking on Malaysian Raymond Tiew in what promises to be an outstanding stand-up war between two of the region’s top strikers.

Jessie Rafols has a reputation for being one of the most exciting and explosive fighters in the talent-rich Philippines, but he will be in for a tough test against South African Muay Thai World Champion and stand out striker Irshaad Sayed.

Another world champion on the undercard is Copa do Mundo BJJ World Champion Alex Silva, originally from Brazil. Silva will undoubtedly be facing off against the toughest opponent of his career when he takes on Geje Eustaquio from the Philippines.

Malaysian model and actor Peter Davis, believes his unconventional stand-up skills will earn him the knock out of the night honors but his opponent, Indonesian Wrestling Champion Ngabdi Mulyadi, will be looking to take the fight to the ground at the first available opportunity.

The opening bout of the night is an all Indonesian affair between two local veterans; Zuli Silawanto and Agus Nanang. They each have over a decade of MMA experience and will be looking to put on an unforgettable display in front of their home fans.

The under card is available for viewing free of charge. The main card is available on pay-per-view at just US$9.99. The first fight is scheduled to get underway at 7:30 PM Jakarta time (GMT + 7:00).
