SKOR.idJeka Saragih berhasil menyedot perhatian dunia berkat penampilan impresif dalam laga debutnya di UFC. Petarung Indonesia ini mampu meraih kemenangan KO (knockout) hanya dalam 91 detik. 

Jeka mencatatkan sejarah di panggung dunia setelah menumbangkan Lucas Alexander dalam laga kelas bulu (featherweight) UFC Vegas 82, Nevada, Amerika Serikat, Sabtu (18/11/2023) malam atau Minggu (19/11/2023) WIB.

Atlet MMA (mixed martial arts) asal Simalungun, Sumatera Utara tersebut melepaskan pukulan tangan kanan ke arah wajah Alexander. Itu membuat sang rival terjatuh. 

Melihat lawannya tak berdaya, Jeka lalu melancarkan serangan lanjutan. Ia menghujani Alexander dengan pukulan sebelum wasit Herb Dean segera menghentikan kontes saat ronde pertama berjalan 1:31. 

Penampilan Jeka Saragih melawan Lucas Alexander sungguh mencengangkan menyusul kekalahan TKO (technical knockout) dalam final Road to UFC dari petarung India, Anshul Jubli, pada Februari 2023.  

Menghadapi Alexander, Jeka tidak menunjukkan rasa takut dalam pertarungan jarak dekat. Petarung 28 tahun itu memulai laga dengan hati-hati. Ia tidak buru-buru. 

Setelah sempat kena upper cut yang dilepaskan Alexander, Jeka bisa memaksa jatuh petarung asal Brasil tersebut. Tetapi tak melanjutkan serangan karena lawannya masih mampu melancarkan tendangan.    

Jeka Saragih kemudian melepaskan pukulan kombinasi tepat ketika Lucas Alexander baru bangkit ketika coba menjatuhkannya dengan kuncian kaki. Ia lalu menuntaskan perlawanan rival lewat rentetan hook.

“Ini perjalanan panjang bagi saya. Tahun ini saya menghabiskan lebih banyak waktu di sini, di Amerika, dibandingkan dengan keluarga. Saya akan kembali ke desa saya (di Indonesia). Saya cinta kalian semua,” ujar Jekas Saragih.

Kesuksesan menghajar Alexander membuat Jeka mencatatkan sejarah sebagai petarung MMA Indonesia pertama yang mampu memenangi laga dalam event bela diri campuran paling bergengsi di dunia, UFC

Dengan kemenangan sensasional dalam UFC Vegas 82, atlet berjuluk Si Tendangan Maut ini menegaskan rekor pertarungannya. Dalam 17 laga yang sudah dilakoni, Jeka Saragih memenangi 14 di antaranya. 

Namun, pastinya kemenangan KO atas Lucas Alexander adalah yang terbesar, karena terjadi di octagon UFC. Tentu saja ini menjadi langkah awal yang penting bagi Jeka menapaki karier di panggung dunia.
