For all adrenaline and fight junkies out there, the U.P. Beta Sigma Fraternity of the University of the Philippines Los Baños is serving a heavy dose of MMA goodness this Valentine’s season. Cancel your plans on February 12, 2o16 and opt instead for an evening of no-holds-barred action and a night to truly remember. Here are 8 reasons to watch the victors write history.
8. Action-Packed Fights
18 fighters. Nine bouts. Every MMA fan out there needs to get in on this kind of action for their Valentine dates. A definite must-see, BATTLE ROYALE V has gathered MMA practitioners from around the Calabarzon and Metro Manila areas for your martial arts battle needs.
7. Girls Call the Shots
For the first time in its five years, BATTLE ROYALE will feature two female fighters in the ring. A long-awaited bout, this is sure to be one hell of a show.
6. New Rules
In the past, BATTLE ROYALE fighters have sported head gear. This year, the ante has gone up because the gear is officially off. Audiences will be treated to uninterrupted action that will put you on the edge of your seat.
5. Five Times the Charm
The organizers behind the event wanted to promote physical and mental fitness not just in the university but in the community as a whole, and saw that the best way to do so was through MMA. Their efforts have paid off, because in it’s fifth year, BATTLE ROYALE is still going strong. Be a part of history and help support their cause.
