ONE Championship heavyweight title belt holder, Brandon ‘The Truth’ Vera announced that he is planning on opening the famous MMA Alliance gym to the Philippines moments after defeating Taiwanese fighter Paul ‘Typhoon’ Cheng.
Owned by Vera, the Alliance gym has produced fighters for UFC, World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), Strikeforce and Bellator. The fighters include Ryan Bader, Jan Blachowicz and Alexander Gustafsson.
According to Vera, the country has too much wasted talents. Putting up a gym in the Philippines is a great outlet for someone who chooses to take the path.
Vera strongly believes that the country can produce world class fighters.
“I think that we have such a plethora of talent in the Philippines, and untapped potential that we can probably produce many world champions here without even trying hard.”
