An undefeated prospect from Team Lakay will get to kickstart things in Tokyo as Jerry “Bokodian Warrior” Olsim takes on Japan’s own Ryoji Kudo in the co-main event of ONE Warrior Series 8: Japan vs. The World on Saturday, October 5th at the Bellesalle Shibuya Garden in Tokyo, Japan. 

 

The eighth installment of ONE Championship Vice President Rich Franklin’s widely-successful documentary series, which takes place during the highly-anticipated Martial Arts Fan Fest, will feature a number of top talent from Japan including stars from Shooto and Pancrase. 

 

The 24-year old has been impressive since being invited to compete on the ONE Warrior Series platform, scoring four straight victories and pushing his mixed martial arts record to a perfect 6-0. 

 

He faces a Shooto veteran in Kudo, who comes in with a 5-1-1 pro record. 

 

Olsim will be the lone representative from the Philippines and will look to follow in the footsteps of fellow Team Lakay athlete Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang, who recently earned a ONE contract after also posting an impressive run during his time on ONE Warrior Series. 

 

Adiwang as well as fellow Team Lakay stars in Danny Kingad, Kevin Belingon, and Honorio Banario will all be competing the following week at ONE: CENTURY, ONE’s landmark 100th event which takes place on Sunday, October 13th at the historic Ryogoku Kokugikan, also in Tokyo, Japan.
