UGB MMA Corporation brings MMA to Puerto Galera
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is the fastest growing sport worldwide and it has grown tremendously over the years.
In the Philippines, a new fight organization dubbed the Underground Battle MMA (UGB MMA Corporation) was created to educate the public on the growing interest in the fight industry as well as establishing a new platform that will serve as an avenue for fighters to compete in amateur and professional-level fight leagues.
It was founded by The Goat Locker Boxing Gym founder and CEO Ferdie Munsayac.
A retired US Navy chief, Ferdie said his primary goal is “to help the young, poverty-stricken but skilled boxers/Muay Thai/ Jiu Jitsu and MMA fighters develop their craft so that they would be able to provide a brighter future anchored on the advocacy – “Beating Up Poverty” which in itself is a commendable goal.
His deep sense of his Filipino heritage which he has reflected alongside with his fundamental mission, is not just to grow the UGB MMA brand but to reinforce his commitment to the Filipino fighters most of whom, like Pacquiao in boxing, come from the fringes of poverty-stricken family backgrounds.
UGB MMA Corp. also offers events that have further established the company as a substantial mover in the fighting industry.
In less than two years, UGB MMA Corp. has gained a significant following through different age range of male and female fighters who all share the same passion for the sports.
This summer, in the new, better and beautiful island of Puerto Galera Oriental Mindoro, beach life will never be the same again as UGB MMA Corp. brings “UGB20: Rambulan sa Galera Beach Battle II,” on April 28-29.
This is the first MMA event to hit the island featuring top foreign male and female fighters in the weaponized caged fights under the Juego Todo brand.
The event is made possible through the help of the Municipality of Puerto Galera headed by Mayor Rockey Ilagan.
