Featuring a flyweight headliner between Adriano Moraes (10-1) and Kosuke Suzuki (10-3-2), “ONE FC 17: Era of Champions” takes place June 14 at Jakarta’s Mata Elang International Stadium. In the co-main event, Indonesia’s best pound-for-pound mixed martial artist returns after a near three-year absence with Fransino Tirta (15-0-1) set to take on Egyptian Sami Amin (4-1).
Since making his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2003, Fransino Tirta has hoarded an almost flawless 15-0-1 record. Tirta is a multiple-division winner in grappling, and has beaten world-class competition in sanshou, boxing and combat sambo. His well-roundedness is legendary having started training 12 years ago in Japanese Jiu-jitsu and adding wrestling, boxing, sanshou and grappling into his arsenal. This June, Tirta is set to proudly represent his homeland on a global stage of MMA as he faces Egyptian mixed martial artist Sami Amin.
Egyptian Sami Amin also makes his ONE FC debut. He’s earned victory in four of his first five professional fights, and three of those wins have come by knockout. Sami Amin looks like one of the most promising MMA talents to come from Egypt. Winning this fight against Tirta will further his case as an exciting mixed martial artist and move him one step closer to a future title opportunity.
