Professional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Submission Grappling event

Indonesian Badass Championship (IBC) is a newcomer in the fight promoting industry having launched its inaugural event late last year. On 17 August 2015, the promoter is holding 10 minute submission only event which is the first ever professional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Submission Grappling event in Indonesia on the country's 70th independence day. The event features world class match ups and is headlined by Indonesia's first ever homegrown BJJ black belt and an unbeaten MMA legend Fransino "Pitbull" Tirta versus a No-Gi BJJ world champion and an unbeaten One Championship featherweight title contender Herbert "The Blaze" Burns.

The nickname "Blaze" is not just for show. Herbert's grappling style is like no other in this region. He is aggressive with efficient and slick techniques, lightning fast transitions while maintaining complete control at all times regardless of the position he is in always leave his opponents unable to catch up with his speed and as a result become vulnerable to submissions. However, "Pitbull" is no slouch either. On his One Championship debut, Fransino submitted Egypt's MMA national champion with a Rear Naked Choke in just over a minute in the first round, proving that his BJJ skill is good enough for the highest international level of competition. This will make an exciting and explosive match between two very aggressive and among the very best in the region.
