Globe and ONE Championship will continue to work together in developing martial arts in the Philippines as the two companies enter another year of partnership.

Globe, along with ONE Championship, has been instrumental in supporting local athletes. Fans and supporters were also given the chance to be a part of their journey via the ONE Super App.

“We are very pleased how ONE Championship has developed the Martials Arts scene in the Philippines. We are happy that we were able to give our local athletes a chance to be in the forefront as ONE continues to grow the Martial Arts landscape globally,” Jil Bausa-Go, Globe Vice-President for Content Portfolio and Partner Management, Content Business Group said.

Bausa-Go believes the continued partnership will bring more fans to the sport as more Filipino athletes are given the chance to be part of stacked cards not only in the Philippines but in other major cities all over Asia.

Globe also announced it is tapping several Team Lakay members to become its Ambassadors. Team Lakay earlier has chosen Globe as its official telco partner in its journey to gain more honor for the country in various ONE Championship events.

Team Lakay, founded by mixed martial arts artist Mark Sangiao, has produced several top contenders and former ONE champions including Folayang, Honorio Banario, Danny Kingad, Geje Eustaquio, Kevin Belingon and current ONE strawweight champion Joshua Pacio to mention a few.*
