Ex–UFC fighter scouts for Cordillera athletes

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter Will Chope said Cordillerans have greater chances of making their presence felt in international MMA promotions.

Chope, who once trained in Baguio and one of the busiest Asian-based MMA fighters, said Baguio boy Biondi Dayangadang, who is co-headlining the Thailand Fighting Championship in Khao Lak, Thailand on Jan. 18,  is expected to leave the cage victorious.

Dayangadang, who has 1-0 win-loss record as a professional fighter, trained with Fight Corps MMA in Baguio and Highland Boxing Gym in La Trinidad, Benguet before moving to Thailand to improve his Brazilian jiu jitsu and Muay Thai skills.

“Diondi moved here in Thailand alone and is looking forward to build his name internationally. A win at TFC 1 will be a big break for him,” Chope said.

Dayangadang will face Wusava Kaweewarakorn of Thailand with a professional record of one win and three losses.

Chope said Baguio produces many talented fighters but a lot of them lack international exposure so Dayangadang along with other MMA fighters have moved to other countries to improve their fight skills.

He said time will come other Baguio fighters will be added in the upcoming fight cards of Thailand Fighting Champion, which is featuring eight pro fight cards in its debut.

Thailand Fighting Championship will be the second MMA promotion in Thailand, home to many world-class striking fighters.

The main event will feature Alex Schild of the United States of America and fighting out of Tiger Muay, and Malaysian Mohd Zakhir of Ultimate Malaysia Fighter.
