The attention of Bodog betting fans will be closely focused on Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta on September 13, 2013, with the ONE Fighting Championship's Champions and Warriors event sure to cause a stir. The fight card features some great match-ups, with the best Indonesian fighters going head-to-head with some international MMA stars. There are also big names from the United States, Europe, South America and Japan on the card, giving the event a truly international flavour.
One bout which local fans of sportsbook betting are sure to be keen to see is the match-up between Eugenio Tan and Vincent Majid. These two big men are expected to produce a titanic clash in the 93 kilogram weight division, and there is more than a splash of national pride at stake too. Malaysia and Indonesia have a long rivalry in martial arts, and with local pride at stake, this is sure to be a classic.
Indeed, many are predicted that the two heavyweights who possess a lot of KO power that a first-round stoppage might well be on the cards. Bodog sportsbook bettors might be wise to lay a wager to that effect, as both men will be desperate to prove a point in front of a passionate and noisy crowd. What adds interest to the bout is that it is, in fact, Majid's first bout as a professional MMA fighter.
While some Bodog sportsbook betting fans might think that places him at a disadvantage, especially facing a more experienced opponent, Majid himself is fairly relaxed at the prospect. His nickname of 'Jack Hammer' is testament to the hitting power that the big man possesses.
“I’m a national Judo champion and I’m a multi-times winner of the Indonesian Submission Championship," he recently explained to reporters.
"I’m also a two-time superfight champion in the Indonesian Jui-jitsu Championship and I used to fight in Combat Sambo and once got to be ranked in the top ten."
That kind of pedigree means that Majid clearly has talent. As any sportsbook betting fan knows, though, it is important to study the form of both fighters. Eugenio Tan is no fresh-faced beginner. He made his professional MMA debut a year ago, and with two fights already under his belt, as well as some amateur experience, he is sure to provide Majid with a serious work-out. A first round stoppage might be asking a little much, but this fight is sure to grab the attention of every seasoned MMA fight fan.
In terms of the rest of the card, there are some thrilling match-ups for fight fans to enjoy. Fans of MMA should check out the latest online sportsbook reviews at Bodog88.com to see what the latest odds are on some of these eagerly anticipated bouts.
Bodog Indonesia sports fans are sure to be keeping a close eye on Max Metino, fighting in the 65.8 kilo division. The Indonesian has been training since the age of nine in a variety of martial arts, including Kung Fu, Aikido and boxing. He will need his extensive MMA skills to beat his opponent, the Cambodian Kun Khmer boxing champion, Long Sophy. Sophy's talents are such that he finds it very tricky to find opponents in his native country.
The Cambodian's main weapons are the fearsome strikes he can produce with his elbows. Those fans looking for the best online sportsbook odds may not want to rule Metino out completely, though. His grappling is excellent, and he may well manage to force a submission, should the bout go to the mat. Fans should expect a war in this bout, with a nice contest of style taking place.
Many of the best sportsbook odds for the event will be found in relation to the evening's main event, though. This places two of the world's very best flyweights in opposition, with Japan's Shinichi Kojima facing up to American Andrew Leone. Kojima is a seasoned pro, who has been in the cage with some of the world's best MMA stars. Leone is an up-and-coming fighter, who has trained in Thailand since 2010. With an outstanding grappling and wrestling ability, he has been working hard on his Muay Thai striking skills in order to improve his all-round style. He is sure to need all his skills against the experienced Kojima when the One FC Champions and Warriors commences next week in Jakarta.
