ONE welcomes Bumina-ang with $100,000 contract

Carlo Bumina-ang’s US $100,000 ONE Championship contract is not only a validation of his hard work but also a testament of Team Lakay’s resolve in honing world class athletes.

More than the financial stability and the resources needed to focus entirely on his training and development, Bumina-ang is set to bring in a global platform to showcase his skills, significantly raising his profile in the MMA community.

Bumina-ang was pushed to the limit in his bantamweight MMA clash against Chayan Oorzhak, but the Filipino monster hung on to keep his dominant streak in ONE Friday Fights alive, improving his record to 5-0 in the promotion.

The Team Lakay star brought his signature style into the fold, charging Oorzhak and dropping him inside the first minute. He then hunted for the rear-naked choke, but his Mongolian-Russian opponent’s senses allowed him to fend off the attempts.

Bumina-ang brought the same approach to the second frame and swarmed Oorzhak again. This time, though, he stunned his adversary with a right hand, allowing him to sink in a ninja choke and secure the submission win at 2:39 of round two.

“I’m so happy I got the finish again,” said the Benguet based Team Lakay fighter, a team with a reputation of producing world-class fighters with exceptional striking and cardio.

Bumina-ang has been training under the guidance of Coach Mark Sangiao, who is a mastermind in developing champions with rigorous training regimen, emphasizing striking, grappling, and endurance.

His recent performance against Oorzhak is a testament to his readiness while his ability to adapt mid-fight, utilize a variety of techniques, and maintain composure under pressure are indicators of his preparedness to face tougher opponents.

However, the competition in ONE Championship will be a step up, and Bumina-ang will need to continually evolve his skills to stay ahead.

With Bumina-ang taking a step further into the next chapter of his career with ONE Championship, fans and analysts alike are eager to see how he will fare against the elite fighters in the bantamweight division.

His recent victory and subsequent contract are just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting journey. With the support not only of Team Lakay, but also to their team manager, Cong. Eric Go Yap, Bumina-ang is poised to make a significant impact in the world of MMA. Roderick Osis
