Weekly Update # 10

This week has been all about sports, food, and music. 


Burn Soriano and Laurence Canavan's Cage Gladiators x Hitman MMA, the premier Philippine local MMA promotion, successfully held their second fight card, Friday Fight Night 2 before a jam-packed Pop Up Katipunan with flyweight Joevincent "Good Boy" So edging Franz "Romance" Galvez in a split decision win in the three-round headliner.

"Being the winner of this event is a very huge opportunity for me. Cage Gladiators and Hitman MMA treat the fighters well. I attempted a submission and did not give him any time to recover. You got to give it to Franz. I tried to finish him for a submission. I wanted to take him via my submission game but he is a tougher wrestler. Hopefully, if we have a rematch I wrestle him out," said So.
Cage Gladiators/Hitman MMA was started by CEO and Founder Anthony Canavan, an ex-Irish Ranger 2nd Regiment Cobra Coy Division, an undefeated military kickboxing champion, bare-knuckle fighter, strongman fighter, and Professional Tactics and Weapons Consultant for SPD, as a means to assist underprivileged and disadvantaged Filipino fighters.
Danny Kingad Sees ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix As Pathway To Another Title Shot

One of the youngest warriors in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix, the 23-year-old Baguio City native knows that it is the perfect platform to get back to ONE World Title contention. "I’m very excited to showcase my talent against the best in my division. My hard work paid off, but this is just the beginning,” Kingad said. “Expect me to double my efforts and to train harder now that I’m already part of the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix.” It will be a stacked Grand Prix with longtime pound-for-pound king Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson bannering the tournament, alongside some of the best flyweights in the organization.

Team Lakay’s Gina Iniong Aims For Decisive Finish In Bangkok

By now, Gina “Conviction” Iniong knows it is not wise to leave her fate in the hands of the judges.
After seeing her former World Champion teammates Joshua “The Passion” Pacio and Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio drop their belts via close decisions last month, the Filipina vows to win every bout moving forward with ‘conviction.’

She will have the chance to do that when she takes on Jihin “Shadow Cat" Radzuan on the undercard of ONE: CLASH OF LEGENDS, which takes place at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on Saturday, 16 February

"They can expect an aggressive and determined Gina Iniong," she stated.

"Anything can happen in a fight. All I can say is I don't want the fight to go to the judges' scorecards."

Iniong, a six-time Philippine Wushu Champion, was regarded as one of the fastest rising stars in ONE Championship's talent-rich atomweight division.
