Mark Striegl signs with ONE FC

Post by Audax on Fri Dec 05, 2014 4:05 pm

ONE FC has been making huge waves all week long with its stacked event which is will be taking place tonight at the Mall of Asia arena. While Filipino fight fans have been going gaga over ONE FC stars like Brandon Vera, Ana Julaton, Eduard Folayang and Honorio Banario, one question has been popping up over and over again, “Is Mark Striegl going to be signed by ONE FC?” Well, it is now official that Striegl is part of Asia’s biggest MMA organization. The official contract signing was held last night at ONE FC’s Warrior’s Way weigh ins.

Striegl has been making waves in the Asian MMA scene since his triumphant return at the grand finale of the world’s biggest amateur mixed martial arts promotion, Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts (MIMMA). Despite being on a year long hiatus, Striegl made quick work of his opponent, Kaiwhare Kara-France, submitting him in a little over 2 minutes of the 1st round. Striegl also made the headlines just 2 weeks ago when it was announced that he was the newest member of Asia’s most prestigious fight team, the Evolve Fight Team, joining the ranks of ONE FC Champions Shinya Aoki and Ben Askren, UFC’s Rafael dos Anjos, Leandro Issa and Tarec Saffiedine and other ONE FC Superstars such as Eddie Ng, Jake Butler, Herbert Burns, Leandro Ataides and Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichok (DSA).

Mark Striegl has long been considered one of the top prospects in the Asian MMA scene. He has a MMA record of 13 wins and 1 loss and has defeated names such as ONE FC’s Ev Ting and Yusuke Kwanago, former PXC Champions Harris Sarmiento and Crisanto Pitpitunge and ROAD FC’s Bae Yong Kwon. Striegl has competed in numerous organizations around Asia such as the URCC (Philippines), DARE Fight Sports (Thailand), Legend Fighting Championship (Hong Kong) and Pacific Xtreme Combat (Philippines). His debut on Asia’s biggest stage for mixed martial arts is without a doubt, long overdue.

Striegl will be making his ONE FC debut at 135lbs. While no date has been confirmed for his debut, it will most likely be in Manila sometime in 2015 due to his huge fan base in the Philippines.
