Launched last year, the first-of-its-kind event unifies combat sports, fitness, and even music all in one venue. This year it heightens the excitement more with MMA and Muay Thai competitions, a conditioning challenge, combat sports demos and exhibitions, plus live performances from some of the country’s celebrated artists.

Guaranteed to be larger than last year’s event, fight fans are sure to get a kick out of the affair’s new highlights, beefed up activities, and superior lineup.

“FightCon” also teamed up with no less than ONE Championship Heavyweight Champion, Brandon “The Truth” Vera to boost the promotion of mixed martial arts in the Philippines together with S+A.

S+A is the home of ONE Championship in the Philippines and has been instrumental in raising interest and awareness on the sport through airing of various local and international MMA events as well as through featuring the inspiring stories of the fighters.
