I am prepared to put in the work and make the sacrifices so that one day, I can bring back a World Championship to Indonesia. Indonesia is a hotbed of talent in mixed martial arts, and I am proud to follow in the footsteps of some of the most talented competitors to come out of the country. Like them, I am ready to make an impact on the ONE Championship stage.”
