I’ve mentioned this like twice or thrice that I’ was never a sporty type of woman. But my views in sports have changed since I’ve been exposed to some sports related events like this one. MMA is quite a challenging and very intriguing sport. Those heart stopping matches made you want to cover your eyes and peek in between your fingers. I haven’t watched anything live though but watching it on TV is enough to make you feel excited.
Last week I was invited to join the Press Conference for the ONE FC CHAMPIONSHIP presents ONE FC RISE TO POWER live on the 31st of May. The fight will be held at the SM Mall Of Asia Arena and everyone seems to be hyped up and very eager to witness the fight!!!
One Fighting Championship (ONE FC). in association with Universal Reality Combat Championship *(URCC), returns to the fight capital of Asia on Friday, 31 May, with the highly anticipated first time defense of hometown hero ONE FC Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario.

He’s one of the top Mixed Martial Artists in the world today. Another humble guy. We were having lunch provided by MIDAS Hotel for the media and he stopped by to greet us. He’s very friendly and he even agreed to chit-chat with us. I found out he’s a Wushu fighter and he’s the reigning Lightweight champion of the URCC and a member of Team Lakay Wushu in Baguio City. A very tough guy but a softy to the ladies I bet. I feel so honored to have met him in person and I even asked for his FB!!!

Also, I met pound for pound king Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes returns to the famd ONE FC cage when he squares off against japanese MMA sensation Kuetsu Okazaki for the ONE FC Bantamweight Interim title.
Of course, being the friendly person that I am, I made some friendly chit-chat with the guy and he even showed us photos of his kids and wife. He’s brazilian by the way. Tough little guy. I think we’re almost the same height or so. He doesn’t have an Instagram too bad but I bugged him to give me his FB hahaha.
Bibiano and me smiling for Instagram yay!!!
All the action will take place at the 20,000 seater SM Mall of Asia Arena in what is expected to be the greatest fight card ever compiled in One FC to return in the Philippines.
I also met the ever gorgeous ring girl Christine for the ONE FC . She’s from Australia and really pretty.
