FOLLOWING two impressive victories in Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series (OWS), Fight Corps MMA is hoping Dave Bangguigui gets a crack at the six digit contract in ONE Championship.

Bangguigui improved his record after earning back to back victories in OWS, stopping Alber Correia Da Silva in the second round.

The Fight Corp MMA enlist proved too much for the Brazilian as Bangguigui dominated the opening round with his overhand right hand that floored Correia.

But the Brazilian had his moments in the fight; however, it was Bangguigui who emerged victorious after submitting Correia in the second round.

Nico Tabora of Fight Corps MMA said they are looking at two more victories for the Bauko, Mt. Province and Nueva Vizcaya pride who has already racked up 13 victories and one loss in his career.

“Hopefully, he can get more wins and make it to ONE,” said Tabora.

Bungguigui added with his recent success, Fight Corps is inspired to train harder for their future bouts as they hope to be enlisted in Asia’s largest mixed martial arts promotions.

The strawweight enlist, who started MMA in 2015, draw the attention of OWS after scoring a knock - out against Joevincent So in September last year while stopping Solomon Dutra via rear naked choke in December last year in URCC, the Philippines first MMA promotion.

In his OWS debut in January this year, Bangguigui showcased his striking prowess when he knocked out promising Indian fighter Susovan Ghosh in the second round which was enough for the fans to remember his name.

The Filipino striker showed good scrambling ability and submission offense as his Indian rival sought to contest the match on the canvas.

Bangguigui took control of the match with a relentless barrage of ground and pound, and then a thudding right hand ended the contest and left a lasting impression.

“Will keep on training and improve my game,” said Banguigui.

The 23–year–old striker was earlier tagged by OWS as one of the fighters to watch in the competition.
