I have followed the careers of both Brandon Vera and Mark Streigl. Both are proud of their Filipino Roots.  Having interacted with them in Under Armour events, they are both down to earth persons who remains grounded despite their success.   It’s no wonder that they have been effective ambassadors of the Under Armour brand and also continue to dominate their fields.

Vera was the honorary guest in the opening of the Bonifacio High Street brand house in the same year, while Striegl has been an Under Armour gear user since he started his professional mixed martial arts career and was enlisted as a brand ambassador since 2015.

Under Armour Philippines supported ONE Championship’s year-end fight card as two beloved mixed martial arts athletes competed at the highly-anticipated “Age of Domination” event on Friday, December 2.  To the delight of Under Armour fans, Brandon Vera and Mark Striegl came out of the 20,000-seater SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City with their hands raised in triumph as both Filipino-American fighters scored impressive victories in their respective bouts.

Vera successfully defended his ONE Heavyweight World Championship, making easy work of previously unbeaten Japanese challenger Hideki Sekine to win by technical knockout just minutes into the first round.  From the opening bell, Vera began to land series of solid blows on Sekine, who surprisingly took Vera’s best shots quite well.  Moments later, a thudding body kick connected for Vera, sends Sekine crashing to the canvas clutching his midsection. Vera then put on the finishing touches with punishing strikes from the top to get the win.

Striegl persevered through three grueling rounds against Bulgaria’s Sotir Kichukov to win by unanimous decision in a catchweight contest.  Striegl began the match aggressively, using superior speed and angles to stifle Kichukov who struggled matching Striegl’s erratic rhythm. Striegl took Kichukov down to the ground at will, controlling his opponent with a smothering top game.  In the end, all three judges saw the bout the same way with Striegl emerging as the victor.

    I have seen Brandon Vera in real life when he watched the musical play Katips. He is really a huge man, but he looks very approachable out of the ring.

    It’s nice how our Pinoy pride continues to shine through Brandon Vera & Mark Striegl. MMA is tough, but these two are tougher – which makes them a good fit for the Under Armour brand.
