JAKARTA—Filipino bet Jomary Torres bowed to Indonesia fighter Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol, absorbing a unanimous decision loss in ONE: Conquest of Heroes Saturday night at Jakarta Convention Center here.

Torres repeatedly tried to bring the fight to the ground, but Gaol proved to be too tough to crack as the Indonesian wushu champion landed solid knees during the clinch and dominated the atomweight match.

The Zamboanga native hardly did anything to hurt Gaol, who had the backing of an appreciative Indonesian crowd, throughout the encounter.

She dropped her first match in the premier mixed martial arts promotion after three straight victories since joining ONE in 2017.

Lumban Gaol, meanwhile, gained her ground and improved her mixed martial arts to 4-3 after a loss to Malaysia’s Hayatun Jihin Radzuan last July.

In the opening bout, Indonesia’s Egi Rozten got his revenge and pummelled compatriot Riski Umar into a technical knockout win 51 seconds into the second round.

Rotzen lost to Umar via TKO last January.

Adrian Matheis also bounced back and finished off Angelo Bimoadju with 2:41 on the clock in the first round of their strawweight match.

Matheis is coming off a defeat in the hands of Filipino fighter Robin Catalan in July.

In the other all-Indonesian affair, Sunoto took home his 10th win after submitting Victorio Senduk with a rear naked choke late in the second round.

The first Super Series of the night saw Fabrice Fairtex Delannon coming away with a split decision victory over Thailand’s Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnon in a battle of Muay Thai champions.
