ONE Championship™ (ONE) today announced that “Globe Presents ONE Warrior Series: Philippines” will air on GTV every Sunday at 9:35 p.m. PHT from September 18 through November 27.
“Globe Presents ONE Warrior Series: Philippines” is a reality competition featuring the journey of 16 mixed martial artists, who are all vying for a six-figure contract and a spot on ONE Championship’s global roster.
The competitors represent an array of top prospects from across the Philippines, including previous national team representatives, international medal winners, and local champions who have come together at the renowned Team Lakay in Baguio City.
The participants will be divided into two teams where they will undergo rigorous training programs that will test their discipline and fortitude. Coaches will then pick two athletes to spar in a “Circle Elimination” to determine who stays and who goes home.
Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, stated: “We are thrilled to partner with Globe to bring ONE Warrior Series to the Philippines in hopes of finding the next global ONE Championship superstar. This partnership will allow us to showcase the beauty and grit of mixed martial arts as well as the journey each of these warriors will go through while pursuing their dream to our passionate Filipino fan base.”

We hope that ‘ONE Warrior Series: Philippines’ will serve as an inspiration for Filipinos to continue conquering challenges and work toward their goals as they witness the journey of the country’s top MMA warriors throughout the competition. This is aligned with Globe’s goal of seeing Filipinos empowered in life.”
