ONE Championship: Jomary Torres is eager to pick herself up after bowing to Mei Yamaguchi

Experiencing two defeats in a row is not the ideal way that a mixed martial artist would want to end a year, but that is exactly how Jomary "The Zamboanginian Fighter" Torres is wrapping up her 2018.   Torres started the year with a bang, scoring a 40-second knockout victory over Team Lakay's April Osenio at ONE: GLOBAL SUPERHEROES in Manila, Philippines last January.   She then made a trip back to the cage eight months later against Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol at ONE: CONQUEST OF HEROES in Jakarta, Indonesia.   Expectations were high for Torres, but the Filipina was outplayed at every turn by Lumban Gaol, yielding to the Indonesian hometown hero by unanimous decision.   With the goal to redeem herself and conclude the year on a triumphant note after suffering her first career loss in the sport, she took the challenge of facing former ONE World Title challenger Mei "V.V" Yamaguchi of Japan at ONE: DESTINY OF CHAMPIONS at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last Friday, 7 December.   Yamaguchi showcased her edge in experience and skills as she outworked Torres in both the striking and ground game departments over the course of three rounds, cruising to a clear-cut unanimous decision.   Although Torres did not get what she wished for, the 22-year-old native of Zamboanga City finds comfort with the thought of going the distance against a battle-tested martial artist such as Yamaguchi.   "To share the stage with a world-class athlete like Yamaguchi is a great learning experience. I see this as something that would benefit my career in the future," she stated.   "This is definitely a great learning experience for me. I gave everything I have, but it didn't quite work out. I knew I was a big underdog, but I stepped up and went all-out against her.”   She concedes that her Japanese opponent was simply the better woman, suggesting that her cage meeting with Yamaguchi will be supplemental to her journey as an athlete in mixed martial arts.   "It's a huge help to have been able to compete against someone of Mei Yamaguchi's caliber. She's a former ONE World Title contender,” she said. "She was the better lady that night, but that's part of being an athlete. I will learn and improve.”   Her first three impressive bouts in the world's largest martial arts organization convinced observers that Torres is a special competitor in the women’s atomweight division of ONE Championship.   Despite the string of setbacks, Torres plans on living up to her potential, believing that better days are definitely ahead in her young career.   "I have a great career ahead of me. The loss will only make me a better competitor moving forward," she vowed......»»

UAAP Finals: UP apologizes for school official s controversial post towards Ateneo players

The University of the Philippines has categorically distanced itself from controversial statements posted on social media by one of its school officials. “We dissociate ourselves as a Board from Regent [Spocky] Farolan’s statements and actions,” the UP Board of Regents (BOR), the school’s highest decision-making body, said in a statement released on Monday. It then continued, “Whatever his motives may have been, there is no excuse sowing fear and confusion especially at a time when (UP’s) attention should have been focused on the rising successes of its athletic program. We view with extreme disapproval and condemn violence in any form.” Last Sunday, Farolan posted on his Facebook account a cryptic message that seemed to hint at forthcoming injuries to Ateneo players. “Sayang hindi kumpleto ang players ng Ateneo sa Wednesday. Tatlo injured. Pili na kayo kung sinu-sino mga yon,” he said, adding three devil emojis at the end of it. The post was made a day after the Blue Eagles topped the Fighting Maroons to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three Finals in UAAP Season 81. The post went viral not long after and Farolan came under fire for his cryptic message. He ultimately deleted the post before saying “there was sarcasm in that comment which may not have been immediately and easily perceived by some.” Now, the UP BOR has bared that Farolan has apologized for his post during their board meeting. “The BOR takes note of the apology of Farolan regarding his post that appeared to advocate the use of violence against members of the men’s basketball team of Ateneo,” its statement said. Nonetheless, the UP BOR made it a point to extend apologies to its neighboring school. “We apologize to the officials, staff, and athletes of Ateneo for any anxiety Regent Farolan’s statements may have caused. We also deeply regret the dampening of the euphoria of UP reaching the UAAP Finals,” it said. The BOR also made it a point to state that it is against Farolan’s re-appointment to the board. “Committed to a higher standard of accountability for its members, the BOR withdraws recommendation for the re-appointment of Regent Farolan,” its statement said. The BOR is made up of 11 regents – the head of the Commission on Higher Education; the president of UP; the chairperson of the Senate Committee on Education, Arts, and Culture; the chairperson of the House Committee on Higher and Technical Education; the president of the UP Alumni Association; one Faculty Regent; one Staff Regent; one Student Regent; and three presidential appointees. Farolan is a presidential appointee. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
