ONE Championship: Team Lakay s Lito Adiwang hopeful to make debut at ONE: Masters of Fate

Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang is ready to strut his wares in front of a worldwide audience after getting a lucrative six-figure contract to the ONE Championship main roster. The fast-rising strawweight athlete from Baguio City defeated Anthony "The Antidote" Do by unanimous decision at Rich Franklin’s ONE WARRIOR SERIES 7 on 6 August in Singapore. Eager to get down to business and make his mark in the strawweight division, "Thunder Kid" hopes to compete when The Home Of Martial Arts returns to the Philippines for ONE: MASTERS OF FATE on 8 November at the Mall Of Asia Arena. “I’ll be ready. For me, it’s the perfect timing cause it’s only a few months away. I don’t have any injuries, so there’s no problem for me,” Adiwang said. “Now it’s all about getting a bit of rest and recovery and then I’ll go back to training and prepare for November 8. If I’m given a chance, I’ll be ready. I’m really eager to join the card.” His latest exploits inside the ring earned Adiwang a lucrative six-figure contract in his entry to the main roster of ONE Championship. But despite an impressive showing in the developmental show, he was not exactly pleased with his performance and wants to make up for it in front of his compatriots. "Now I’m eager to enter the Circle as soon as possible so I can showcase what I failed to show back then. Really excited to showcase the things that I can do,” Adiwang explained. “My goal is to become the ONE Strawweight World Champion. That’s what I am aiming for. That’s what pushed me to get some impressive wins and put on a better show.” Now that Adiwang has made a name for himself at ONE Warrior Series with his explosive striking and monstrous knockout power, he aims to do the same in the main roster. "I’ll do my best, train harder, give better shows - then get a title shot." Catch ONE Championship’s event ONE: IMMORTAL TRIUMPH on 6 September in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. It will be the organization’s first ever all-Super Series event. It will be aired live on the ONE Super App.     More from ONE Championship: Latest ONE Warrior Series Contract Awarded To Team Lakay’s Lito Adiwang Top Five Highlights From ONE Warrior Series 7 How Lito Adiwang’s Homecoming Set Him For Breakout Success.....»»

PVL: Unusual -- Valdez on limited attack attempts

Creamline star Alyssa Valdez has always been known for her amazing attacking prowess and powerful spikes. A scoring machine since her high school days, Valdez on Sunday experienced an uncharacteristic performance in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference. The three-time Most Valuable Player only had 12 spike attempts. But it’s not because of her having a bad night, in fact she finished with an impressive 66 % in attacking efficiency. It’s just that newcomer Chef’s Classics reception was so horrible Valdez only had a few chances to rotate from the backline as she spent a total of 35 trips from the service line. “Unusual, definitely” said a very surprised Valdez of her spike attempts in the Cool Smashers’ 25-12, 25-5, 25-15, victory over the Red Spikers for their third win as many games at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.   Valdez finished with 16 points highlighted by an 8-of-12 attacking clip with seven aces and a kill block.  “First time na mangyayari na 12 attempts ako, promise. Uy! Ang galing baka ito ang record ko?” said Valdez, who had 10 digs. The two-time PVL champion spent more time at the service line than Chef’s Classics trips combined. Valdez had 35 service attempts, 28 going in perfectly while landing seven aces and without committing a single error.   “’Yung goal ko kasi talaga syempre more than na hindi ako mag-errors sa service line is to get points para may points din sa likod,” she said. “Kasi sa training din ni Coach Tai [Bundit] every day we train the very important skill which is service so the fact na tine-train namin ‘yun dapat lumabas siya sa game.” Valdez had a long stay at the service line as Creamline built a 16-1 separation before Jingay Bangad stopped the Red Spikers’ bleeding with a hit.       Valdez continued her long stay at the service line in the second frame, this time serving 20 times in a row as the Cool Smashers opened a 19-1 gap before Nieza Viray gave the Red Spikers a respite with a tip. She had a few more attempts in the third. “I’m happy na di ako nagka-errors sa service line,” said Valdez. “Kasi it’s frustrating to get errors from the service line but I’m really confident kasi na kahit nasa likod ako may tumutulong kagaya sila Jema [Galanza] sa front to kill the ball. Kahit lakasan ko bola laging may bawi so you just do what you have to do kasi everyone naman will do their part.” The Cool Smashers will face BanKo on Wednesday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Return of the Mac-killer: Nate Diaz ends hiatus at UFC 241

By Greg Beacham, Associated Press ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The mostly empty arena rumbled with outsized excitement when Nate Diaz stepped onto the stage. The fans erupted into cheers while Diaz lit a joint and took a big drag before doing a little shadowboxing for the cameras. Even before he said a word at his open workout four days before UFC 241, Diaz showed he can captivate an audience like no active fighter in the mixed martial arts world. Fighters can train for almost every skill in the game except charisma, and the Diaz brothers are laden with it. The younger Diaz (19-11) returns from a three-year hiatus on Saturday night, taking on Anthony Pettis in his first bout since his two showdowns with Conor McGregor in 2016. A heavyweight title rematch between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic is the main event, but many fans at Honda Center and around the world will be watching mostly to see what Diaz does next. "I'm here as a businessman and a natural born killer," Diaz said. "I'm here to get the job done, and he's the guy to do it on, so there's no problem. It's all good with me. I'm just here to kill and stay alive for the weekend." Diaz and his older brother, Nick, receive a level of adulation in the MMA world that exceeds even their considerable accomplishments. It's difficult to explain the Diaz appeal to observers who don't have a full historical perspective on the pugnacious, thoughtful brothers' omnipresence in their sport's attitudes and images during the past 15 years, even when they weren't competing very often. Their swashbuckling attitude, angry disregard for authority, profane words of wisdom and athletic fighting styles all appeal tremendously to many people who support a young sport that's still seen as repellent counterculture by a big segment of mostly aging sports fans. Put it this way: A 22-year-old Nate Diaz once completed a submission finish with his legs while simultaneously thrusting two middle fingers in the air. You might love that or hate it, but you have an opinion. "That's the way I've been from Day One," Diaz said. "It's going to stay this way, too, until I'm 100 years old. I'm the Don of all this. If anybody is going to step in this room and say they're the (butt)-whipper, I beg to differ." Even Anthony Bourdain, the late traveler and gourmand, famously filmed a segment with Nick and Nate for his CNN show on Los Angeles, not because the Northern California natives knew much about LA and its cuisines — other than the best weed, probably — but simply because Bourdain, a jiu-jitsu practitioner and MMA fan, was fascinated by the brothers' outlaw ethos. Some of the brothers' behavior seems performative, but some of it isn't: Both Nick and Nate have essentially walked away from the UFC for long stretches of their prime, turning down countless millions in prize money because they refused to compromise what they considered to be their principles. Diaz split two tremendously entertaining matchups with McGregor and became one of the UFC's biggest stars in 2016, but he is 34 years old now, and Saturday's fight will be only his fifth since November 2013. Diaz said he felt mistreated by the UFC, although he struggles to explain how its persistent attempts to book one of its most popular fighters constitute disrespect. Diaz turned down matchups worth millions, including a probable shot at Georges St. Pierre, and he lost a chance to return last year when future champ Dustin Poirier was injured before their bout. Diaz also said he doesn't fight for money. He and his brother, Nick, who hasn't fought in nearly five years, are busy with Nick's thriving gym in their native Stockton, California. Nate said they've also got a successful CBD business, to absolutely nobody's surprise. "They've been trying to degrade me the whole time I've been out," Diaz said. "They're trying to put me low on the card against not very big names. They also tried to give me huge names, but those fell through. It don't matter. I believe I'm the main event in any event they've got. They'll do the best they can to keep me from that." Diaz's complaints are more likely a distilled version of that everyone-is-against-me mentality that drives so many athletes. But he was tempted back by a matchup with Pettis, who nurses a grudge against Diaz that apparently isn't mutual. Diaz dismissively refers to Pettis as "this Wheaties box" in reference to Pettis' former endorsement deal with the cereal, but has mostly ignored Pettis' pointed criticisms. Diaz won't say whether he plans to fight again, or whether he would like his first UFC title shot since 2012. He will stick to his own timetable and goals while nursing the same attitude that kept him on top of the UFC star pyramid even during three years away. "No one on the roster for the last three years even read the blueprints," Diaz said. "I'm right there. Why don't you go take it? And nobody did, and tomorrow, if some of these young guys say they're going to step up and take my position, I'm not with that.".....»»

PVL: I have to prove myself – Manilla Santos-Ng

Returning Manilla Santos-Ng has to reintroduce herself. The volleyball legend may have an impressive résumé under her belt but after a decade removed from competitive play, Santos-Ng will have to start from scratch. It’s like her rookie year with De La Salle University all over again. Santos-Ng is staging a comeback since her last stint in the UAAP in 2009 after signing up with newcomer ChocoMucho in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference. “It’s 10 years ago [since I last played]. Sa totoo lang, I consider myself a rookie in this pro-league, bago lang ako,” said the four-time UAAP champion. Just like other newbies, Santos-Ng, who during her time in the UAAP was known for her high-leaping exploits, high-octane offense and solid floor defense, has to vie for playing time under head coach Oliver Almadro. “I really have to prove myself also kung talagang karapa’t dapat kang makalaro,” said Santos-Ng. “Kung maglalaro ka go, if you can contribute go. If not, maybe in some other ways like inspiring the kids.” Santos-Ng has to compete against her younger and taller teammates to convince Alamdro for minutes. And earning her playing time won’t be easy for the 34-year old, 5-foot-4 hitter in a Flying Titans team stacked with young and very talented wing spikers in Kat Tolentino, Shang Berte, Carla Sandoval, Bang Pineda, Cindy Imbo, Shannen Palec and Gyra Barroga.    It’s a big challenge that Santos-Ng knows she has to face. “One thing I like about Coach Oliver is that he’s very honest with us,” said the UAAP Season 71 Most Valuable Player, who played under Almadro back when the mentor worked as deputy to DLSU head coach Ramil De Jesus.   “Kilala ko rin siya na, 'Hindi porke’t kilala kita bibigyan kita ng spot,'” she added. Santos-Ng also acknowledges that she has to work double time to adapt to this generation’s level of play and try to bring back if not exceed her vintage form.    “Honestly speaking may pressure because people are expecting a lot,” said Santos-Ng, who knows very well the hype that was built in her return. “But as I said, I consider myself a rookie here. Naga-adjust pa ako.” The three-time UAAP Best Receiver decided to come back to fulfill her son Kenzi's wish of seeing her in action. “When I decided to come back, I started losing weight muna, low impact. Adaptive phase kasi matagal akong di nakapaglaro tapos nagdyi-gym ako,” she said. Santos-Ng then trained with ChocoMucho’s sister-team Creamline for a few months. “I told my husband I need court skills also so he said since affiliated naman siya sa Rebisco, he asked the management and the management is gracious enough to accept me to train with them,” Santos-Ng said. “And then during training, there was a new team being formed under Coach Oliver. Sinabi ko naman if I could join sa ChocoMucho because Coach Oliver’s there,” she continued. The former Queen Lady Spiker, who had her jersey no. 14 retired by DLSU, is now working on bringing back her hops and hang time that wowed fans a decade ago when the sport’s following was limited only to Filipino volleyball purists.   “Ngayon lang ulit ako tumalon, nitong June. Nu’ng nag-start ako mag-training with Creamline noong February hanggang May more on floor defense lang ako, hindi pa ako kaagad tumatalon,” she said. “Again it’s been 10 years, it’s been a long time baka if nabigla ako ma-injury lang. So noong June pa lang ako nag-start, sakto noong nasa ChocoMucho ako.”         When asked if this generation will have a chance to see the vintage Illa Santos operate inside the court, Santos-Ng answered. “Let’s just say na my teammates nagsasabi na may talon pa rin naman,” she said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

ONE Championship: After disappointing night in Manila, it’s back to the drawing board again for Team Lakay

ONE Championship’s third trip to Manila for 2019, ONE: Dawn of Heroes which was held last August 2nd at the Mall of Asia Arena, was tagged as the biggest martial arts event in Philippine history.    With fans packing the stadium, it was the perfect platform for La Trinidad-based mixed martial arts stable Team Lakay to showcase their talents in front of what could possibly be the biggest ONE crowd in Manila.    Unfortunately for Team Lakay, ONE: Dawn of Heroes would prove to be an unfavorable night for the most part.    “1 and 4,” said Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao during the post-event press conference. “One win and four losses, but again, it’s not the first time that we’ve experienced a case like this. We’ve gone 0-5, and again, we learned a lot of lessons from tonight, and we’ll be back to the drawing board. We’ll go back to the hotel and discuss what happened.”   The preliminary card was nothing short of a disaster for Team Lakay, as former champions Geje Eustaquio and Honorio Banario, and featherweight contender Edward Kelly all absorbed painful losses.    Kelly, who was the first on deck, fell victim to unintentional illegal blows to the back of the head at the hands of Chinese contender Xie Bin, rendering him unable to continue. With the bout already past the halfway point when the infraction occurred, a technical decision needed to be made, and it went in favor of Xie, who had been dominating Kelly all throughout the first one-and-a-half rounds.    Hoping to right the ship and get himself back on track as well was former ONE Featherweight World Champion Banario, who took on a short-notice replacement in South Korean Dae Sung Park. Banario was originally slated to face Russian Timofey Nastyukhin, but instead went to the prelims after Nastyukhin needed to pull out due to an injury.    Banario found himself in trouble early on after getting rocked with a left high kick and an elbow, but was able to survive and make things competitive for the rest of the bout. Banario had his moments, but it was Park who was in control for the better part of the three-round bout, leading to a unanimous decision win.    “Siguro the lesson I learned in this fight is I need to train more,” a dejected Banario said during the post-fight presser. “I gave everything in the fight, but it wasn’t my night, so I think the next time, I need to train more and improve my game.”    With the loss, Banario is now riding a two-fight losing streak, and while he admitted that the short-notice opponent change may have thrown him off his game for a bit, “The Rock” offered up no excuses for the defeat.    “Just a little bit, because my opponent changed to a southpaw, I tried to adapt for three weeks, but there’s no excuses. I lost the fight and [I need] to go back to the drawing board,” he said.    Hoping to be able to end the slump was former ONE Flyweight World Champion Eustaquio, who was coming off a bounce-back win back in Singapore. Against a heavy-handed Japanese striker in Yuya Wakamatsu, Eustaquio was hoping to get a win and throw himself back into title contention. Instead, Wakamatsu had other plans, as he landed a stiff right straight that knocked Eustaquio out in the first round.   It was Eustaquio’s first loss via knockout.    “Things happen, you know? In this level of competition, it’s either you get knocked out or you will knock him out. It’s just that tonight was not my night. I hope, and I believe that this is going to be a big stepping stone for me to become a better athlete,” he said.    In what was Team Lakay’s main event for the night, former two-time ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang faced arguably his toughest challenge yet in former UFC and Bellator Lightweight World Champion Eddie Alvarez in a ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix semifinal bout.    Folayang appeared to be within moments of victory after chopping Alvarez down with a vicious leg kick and pouncing on the grounded American.    Over-aggression led to a bit of carelessness for Folayang as he found himself getting reversed as he was looking to finish Alvarez off.    With the American star now in dominant position, it was only a matter of moments before he managed to impose his superior grappling and submitted the Filipino hero with a Rear Naked Choke just a little over two minutes into the opening round.   “I think, for Eduard in this fight, the major lesson that we learned is that ‘Don’t rush. We’re winning.’ I thought we won already, but because of small details, we’re in the [world-class] calibre, so small details will finish everything and lose the fight, so next time, we’ll be cautious,” Sangiao said of Folayang’s loss.    The lone bright spot for the team was their youngest Lakay in Danny Kingad, who rallied back to defeat Reece McLaren in their ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix semifinal bout. With the win, Kingad advances to the Finals to face American MMA icon and former long-time UFC Flyweight king Demetrious Johnson, who was also victorious that night against Japanese contender Tatsumitsu Wada.    Kingad and Johnson are set to square off at ONE: Century in Tokyo, Japan this October.    As Coach Mark said, this isn’t the first time that Team Lakay has felt disappointment in Manila. In fact, they have gone worse.    Back in 2013, Team Lakay went 0-5, with Folayang, Eustaquio, and Banario and Kevin Belingon all suffering losses that night in Manila.    But following the downs are usually ups, and Team Lakay has had their share of ups as well since then. They have gotten quite a few clean sweeps and even ended 2018 with four world championships, which means that all is not lost for the Igorot warriors, and Sangiao is confident that his team will regain their glory in the future.    “As I’ve said, this isn’t the first time that we’ve experienced cases like this. Before, we experienced going 0-5, and now we will be back again, and I know that they will be back stronger and better.”   .....»»

ONE Championship: Danny Kingad has the chance to take down someone he looks up to in Reece McLaren

Danny “The King” Kingad has always considered himself a fan of Reece “Lightning” McLaren. Now the 23-year old will get a crack at his longtime idol in the semi-finals of the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix nonetheless. The dynamic pair of flyweights is set to collide on the undercard of ONE: DAWN OF HEROES on Friday, 2 August, which is set to take place at the 20,000-seat Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines. “Of course I am excited cause it’s one of my goals to face someone I look up to on 2 August,” Kingad said. “The King” started to hold McLaren in such high regard when the Filipino-Australian pulled a shocker in defeating Mark “Mugen” Striegl by third-round submission in his debut in The Home of Martial Arts at ONE: SPIRIT OF CHAMPIONS in December 2015. He knew right there that “Lightning” is a rare talent - so he never missed watching his every bout. “When I first watched him, he was really explosive. He had wrestling and he had striking. That was when he faced Mark Striegl,” Kingad shared. “I thought to myself I had to watch all of his fights because I considered him my idol.” But the young phenom from Baguio City vows that his admiration for McLaren will not stand in the way of his goals. “I want to show what I am made of, and of course, I also want to see the things that I saw from him before,” Kingad said. “For me, the more that I idolize you, the more that I want to beat you. I am excited. I am motivated to train everyday.” Kingad believes that he has seen just about everything that McLaren is capable of doing inside the ring. He sees that as an advantage, and promises to showcase a side of his game the world is yet to witness. “Truth be told, I have some things in my arsenal that people are yet to see,” Kingad playfully teased. “It’s hard to predict, but I don’t want to disappoint people, I really want to win this for the people, and for me to be able to show my idol what I am capable of.” ONE: DAWN OF HEROES will air on ABS-CBN S+A at 8:30pm Philippine Standard Time (PHT).

The Journey to a More Active Lifestyle: How To Stay On Track

Half a year has passed. How’s your fitness resolution going so far? Some managed to stay on track with their health and wellness journey, while it’s been a tough ride for others. But quitting should never be an option—if you’re still serious in keeping your body in tip-top shape. Need an extra push to keep on moving? These tips won’t let you down.  Identify your motivation -  Are you trying to lose weight? Aiming to tone and strengthen your muscles? Or maybe, you’re just looking for a new recreational activity? Define your real purpose. Let it serve as your guide and motivation to work harder. Nothing can stop you once you’re fully determined to reach your goal. Find new fitness activities that suit your style - Stop signing up for ‘trendy’ workouts. Or joining fitness classes because your friends are hooked on these activities. It’s okay to explore your options. But stick with the one that you really enjoy the most. Want to master combat sports? Game. Interested in circuit training? Give it a go. Aiming to develop your coordination and mental concentration? Try parkour classes. If you enjoy what you’re doing, it will keep you going—no matter how challenging each session gets.  Plan your workouts - ‘It’s too early’. ‘It’s too late’. ‘It’s raining’. ‘I forgot my gym clothes and training gears’. Schedule your exercise ahead of time so you wouldn’t have to use these excuses. Train during the time that works best for you—consider if you’re a morning or night person. Download a weather app so the rain couldn’t bother you from your run. Pack your gym essentials hours before your training. Stop skipping your workout by eliminating all these possible scenarios. Surround yourself with people who will inspire you to keep going -  It will take time to see real progress. And the last thing you need to hear are discouraging remarks from others. Like people telling you to quit because ‘nothing’s happening, you look the same’. Get away from the toxicity and surround yourself with ‘cheerleaders’. Those people who will push you to go further—because you can. And you should. If they could also be your gym buddies, the better. That way, you’ll be able to bring each other up—whenever the other person feels like surrendering.  Choose gym essentials that work as hard as you do - From activewear, sports shoes, up to your fitness hygiene kit. Your exercise essentials affect your performance. Just imagine wearing sportswear that doesn’t provide ample support and training shoes that don’t aid in shock absorption. Or using gym essentials that don’t keep you from being hulas (aka smelly + sweaty!) throughout your workout.  Stop settling for whatever is available and start choosing quality over anything else - Double-check your activewear’s description. See if it has all the features and protection you need. And if you want to avoid leaving sweat and odor protection up to chamba, include Rexona deo-lotion in your hygiene kit.  Rexona has MotionSense technology that offers motion-activated protection from sweat and odor. The more you move, the more it works—and its freshness lasts up to 48 hours, too. So, if you’re someone who hates excessive perspiration during workouts, Rexona will be a real life-saver for you. Don’t worry, this one wouldn’t take much space in your bag since it comes in a sachet variant. Cool (literally and figuratively), huh?  Half a year has passed. That’s a gentle reminder of how far you’ve already come, and how far you have to go. Keep on moving. Keep on working on yourself. You got this.        Shower lang, kulang. Say No to Chamba, Chamba freshness! Get guaranteed sweat and odor protection with Rexona.  Buy the Rexona Anti-Stain +  Ice Cool or Rexona Powder Dry in sachet variant  for only Php8 SRP in stores nationwide!  .....»»
