UGB MMA Rebirth

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is the fastest growing sport worldwide, and it has grown tremendously over the years.

In the Philippines, a 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 Ferdinand A. Munsayac. A retired US Navy chief. His primary goal is to help the young, poverty-stricken but skilled boxers/Muay Thai/ Jiu Jitsu and MMA fighters develop their craft so they would be able to provide a brighter future anchored on the advocacy – “Beating Up Poverty” which is a commendable goal.

The Founder’s Filipino heritage is shown alongside his fundamental mission  not just to grow the UGB MMA brand, but to reinforce his commitment to the Filipino fighters most of whom, like Pacquiao in boxing, comes from the fringes of poverty-stricken family backgrounds.

UGB MMA Corporation also offers events that have further established the company as a substantial mover in the fighting industry. The past events around the Philippines were held in Sta Lucia Mall in Cainta, to Puerto Galera,  The World Trade Center, to Resorts World Manila for BLAZE FC2 and Blaze FC3, to small bars, fun fights and even to the cemetery. The last one was held in Cauayan Isabela, and it was successful.

From 2013 to 2018, UGBMMA has had 68 events in over 6 years which started in The Goat Locker Gym. .

Blow by Blow : UGB MMA Rebirth

Members of the media, sponsors, VIP’s, fighters, round girls, and performers were assembled together last 23rd of August 2019 for the much-awaited Press Conference entitled "UGB MMA Rebirth", which featured the relaunch of the UGB MMA brand from an amateur league to a full-fledged Professional League with Gab licenses.

This was 7 years in the making for the founder of UGB MMA Mr. Ferdinand A. Munsayac aka Papa Goat or Jefe. He waited and worked despite all the doubt and negativity  to arrive to this point. After 68 events from 2013 to 2019, the professional license and good sponsors finally arrived, hence the successful press conference in the Ropali Classics showroom.

Despite the heavy rains and traffic, there was a good turnout for the UGB MMA Rebirth Press Conference. The four (4) pillars of the said company was honored and presented the vision casting such as Ropali Group of Classics General Manager, Mr. Rex Aldous Alingog, Mr. Carlos Pasion the President of Balai Cagayano, COO Mr. Toots Aldeguer and CEO Papagoat, Mr. Ferdinand A. Munsayac.

The Press Conference was hosted by Mr. Mikuni Munsayac and Ms. Danielle Jane Curie, with the opening prayer by Vice President Mr. Kuni who is also the social media manager/trainer and Blaze FC champion.
