WATCH: Vera, Julaton show skills at ONE Championship’s media workout
MANILA, Philippines – Filipino Americans Brandon Vera, Mark Striegl and Ana Julaton appear in open workouts at the KMA Fitness Gym in Makati 3 days ahead of the ONE Championship's year-end fightcard.
Vera went through grappling drills and striking routines in a 10-minute workout with his trainer. He will take on late replacement Paul Cheng for the first-ever ONE heavyweight championship in the main event.
Striegl will face Australian Reece McLaren in a last-minute switch from original foe Jordan Lucas. If he wins, he is one step closer to a bantamweight title fight.
Former boxing world champion Julaton also returns to the ONE cage after a year of absence. She locks horns with Irina Mazepa.
Three other Filipinos will see action in the fightcard including Geje Eustaquio, Eugene Toquero and Ruel Catalan. ONE: Spirit of Champions takes place on Friday, December 11 at the Mall of Asia Arena. – Rappler.com
