ONE: Danny Kingad decisions Ma Hao Bin in Macau

Team Lakay flyweight contender Danny Kingad showcased his superior striking and much improved grappling skills as he grinded out a tough unanimous decision victory over Chinese contender Ma “The Southern Eagle” Hao Bin at ONE: Pinnacle of Power, Saturday evening at the Studio City Events Center in Macau. Kingad opened the bout with a thunderous body kick that reverberated throughout the stadium. It didn’t take long for Ma to go to his bread and butter, as the Chinese grappler shot in for a takedown and successfully got Kingad on the mat moments after. Throughout the bout, Kingad dictated the pace in the striking department, punishing Ma with kicks to the leg and kicks to the body. Ma found some success with his takedowns, but wasn’t able to threaten Kingad from the bottom. In the final frame, the two flyweight contenders went back and forth, trading submission attempts, with Kingad closing out the bout with a kneebar attempt. After three rounds, the Baguio City native did enough to earn the unanimous decision nod from all three judges. #ONEFightNight Danny Kingad does it!

Delarmino advances to AIMAG muay thai gold medal match

ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan – Filipino Muay Thai fighter Phillip Delarmino advanced to the finals after he scored a 30-27 win over Rusdem Bayramdurdyyew of Turkmenistan in their -57kg semifinals match in the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) Wednesday in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Delarmino, a silver medalist in the Asian Beach Games in 2014 and second placer during the 2013 Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar, was the more dominant fighter in the rings, throwing a deluge of punches and kicks that overwhelmed his Turkman opponent and the highly partisan crowd at the Martial Arts Arena here. The 26-year-old Delarmino from Iloilo City won in all three rounds, which secured him a spot in the finals against Thailand's Chotichanin Kokkrachai, who entered the championship match by scoring a similar 30-27 victory over Almaz Sarsembekov of Kazakhstan. The gold medal game is scheduled Thursday evening at the Muay Thai Arena. “Nahirapan din ako sa kalaban ko, pero effective naman yung game plan namin ni coach (Billy Alumno),” said Delarmino “Napag-aralan namin (Turmen) dahil sa last two fights ko ganun lang plano ko… clear na kunin namin every round. Mahirap kasi kung dumikit ang laban tapos ang kalaban host country pa,” Delarmino added. Delarmino said they have studied the moved of his Thai, and hopes that their strategy would be effective for him to finally secure a gold medal in the sport that Thailand invented. “Nakita na namin mga laban nya (Kokkrachai), meron kaming gameplan para sa kanya. Kaya naman, Sana makuha natin yung gold sa finals,” said Delarmino, who reached the quarterfinals in last August’s Muay World Games in Poland. The Philippines is running 13th overall with a medal count of 2 gold, 5 silver and 6 bronze medals. The fighters from taekwondo and belt wrestling settled for a bronze each after Francis Aaron Agojo lost to Jang Jun of South Korea (34-9) in the -58kg semifinals, while Jefferson Manatad fell to Kazakhstan’s Aldos Kulmanbetov (5-0) in the -80kg Classic Style final four. Kurash grappler Al Rolan Llamas also settled for a bronze medal after losing in the semifinals against Erkin Omurzakow of Turkmenistan, 10-0, in the men’s -60kg weight class. Wrestlers Noemi Tener (women’s classic style -60kg), Grace Loberanes (-50kg), Michael Vijay Cater (men’s classic style -55kg), Christof Hofmann Jr. (-90kg) and Jonathan Maquilan (-65kg) didn’t make it to the medal rounds. Dessa Delos Santos wound up fifth in the women’s weightlifting following a combined lift of 184kg in the women’s 58kg division. Luo Xiaomin of China (222kg) won the gold medal followed by second-placer Muattar Nabieva of Uzbekistan (212kg) and bronze performer Acchedya Jagaddhita of Indonesia (204kg). .....»»

Rene Catalan Mirroring Compatriot Eduard Folayang’s Path To World Title Gold

The success of Team Lakay and its contributions to the sport of mixed martial arts in the Philippines is something that has been told, and will be re-told, for a long time. After all, winning four ONE World Titles in one year is a feat that would be hard to topple. However, not all Filipinos who are successful in ONE Championship come from the fabled gym in Benguet.   One of nation’s athletes who has forged his own path is Rene “The Challenger” Catalan.   "Team Lakay has been here for a long time. It's only right to say that they are the top team from the Philippines,” said Catalan, who spearheads Catalan Fighting System in Makati City. “I have nothing but respect for them."   Like Team Lakay, the members of Catalan Fighting System struggled to find their footing in The Home Of Martial Arts at first. But now, each of the members is hitting their stride in their respective weight classes.   For instance, Catalan, an Asian Games wushu gold medalist, went winless in his first three mixed martial arts encounters in ONE. But then, he won his next five bouts and now, he is viewed as a legitimate contender for the ONE Strawweight World Championship, which is currently held by Yosuke Saruta.   Catalan, who is scheduled to face former titleholder Yoshitaka “Nobita” Naito at ONE: REIGN OF VALOR on 8 March, is now a stone’s throw away from getting his title shot.   A victory over the Japanese grappler in Yangon, Myanmar could assure him an opportunity to challenge for the gold.   "I see this fight ending by unanimous decision or by knockout," the Filipino quipped.   "I see him as someone blocking my goal of fighting for the World Title, and my goal is to remove him [from] my path."   The 40-year-old slugger, which hails from Iloilo City, is using the rise of Team Lakay — particularly ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang’s — as his main motivation to zoom to the top.   "The likes of Eduard Folayang had to go through many heartbreaks before reaching his current status,” Catalan explained.   “For our team, we also need more experience to reach that level someday. We just need time and determination to reach the level of Team Lakay."   Now, his entire focus is on Naito, knowing well that a win here would be the realization not only of his dream, but his team's goals as well/   "I see this fight ending by unanimous decision or by knockout," Catalan said. "I see him as someone blocking my goal of fighting for the world title; My goal is to remove him in my path."  .....»»
