ONE Championship: Age of Domination- Before the Fight!

Hello po! I remember as a kid, I would regularly watch WWF with my dad and bro. I was a fan of  The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan and Shawn Michaels. That was more than a decade ago. Nowadays, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) has gained massive popularity and fandom.

In both wrestling and this full contact combat sport MMA, one can expect a lot of pain, and at times mangled limbs, broken bones and blood. But in comparison, I cannot help but notice how much more realistic and straightforward the latter is. Of course, the actual fights in wrestling matches are real, but the story is scripted.

ONE Championship: Age of Domination

Last November 29 was the presscon of One: Age of Domination held in Vikings MOA. The first batch for interview is composed of ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera, ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes (Brazilian) and Filipino fighter Danny Kingad.

Headlining the massive fight card is Brandon Vera who will defend his ONE Heavyweight World Championship belt against Japanese MMA standout Hideki Sekine.

Brandon Vera stated: “I’m ready to fight and defend my title. Training has gone great. I’m excited to step back inside the ONE Championship cage. I love the Philippines, this is my home. I’m here to help all of our Filipino fighters. I’m going to make sure I won’t be the last Filipino heavyweight world champion.”

Bibiano Fernandes declared: “I’ve competed all across the globe against the world’s best fighters, but even though I am a world champion, I feel I am still constantly improving. Martial arts is a continued pursuance of self-improvement and greatness. As long as I continue to improve and take on the biggest challenges, I am happy. Reece McLaren is the latest challenge and I am ready to face him.”

Next came World title challenger Reece “Lightning” McLaren (Fil-Aussie), and Pinoy fighter Eugene Toquero.

Reece McLaren said: “I’ve been an underdog my entire life. I excel in this position, it invigorates me. Bibiano Fernandes is a big hill to climb, but my skills and achievements have brought me to this stage in my career and I am going to do everything I can to take home the belt. This is a rare opportunity so I have to do my best.”

The Fil-Am Brandon (hometown Tagkawayan, Quezon ), in spite of his huge physique, is quite approachable and charming. He spoke good Tagalog and was simply clad in shirt, shorts and slippers. He will be starring in a movie soon.
