MMA Philippines’ FightCon Survival Guide

FightCon 2017 is Upon Us

With less than a week away from the biggest fighting and conditioning convention in the country, we are here to give you some tips so you can enjoy FightCon 2017 to the fullest. We had fun last year, so here are some key things to remember for the full FightCon experience on Saturday, May 13, 2017.


This year’s FightCon promises to be an action-packed day for fight fans with a lot of activities lined up throughout the day. As early as 10 AM, fight fans can take their chance at conquering the conditioning challenge — an event that proves to be a FightCon favorite. There will also be demos from different combat sports, Rollapalooza, MMA and Muay Thai matches, and live music from the country’s finest rock acts.


P300 gets you in the event. But the organizers of FightCon are offering ticket packs with loads of freebies. Raise your FightCon experience with the VIP pack that includes a VIP ticket, FightCon 2017 shirt, tumbler, and drink stub so you can just sit back and relax the whole day. Also, you might want to check out the booths for your fight gear fix. For tickets/event packs, you may contact +63917 513 4877 or visit their Facebook store.

In last year’s FightCon, we saw several celebrities (including Presidential son Sebastian Duterte and ONE lightweight champion Eduard Folayang) around the venue. This year, we’re hoping that a lot more celebrities are going to grace the event. Who knows, you just might bump into ONE heavyweight champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera on Saturday.


There will be a lot of schools doing demos ranging from gymnastics to Taekwondo, Jiu Jitsu, Wushu, and even women’s self-defense lined up for those looking into pursuing a new combat sport. Also, a lot of gyms will be present to support their fighters in the Rollapalooza and MANO MANO: MMA and Muay Thai Competition.


FightCon was made for the fighters, fight fans, and brands to get together and have a good time. So we encourage you to keep that ego out the door and just have good clean fun.

“FightCon was designed to promote mixed martial arts, encourage athleticism, and gather fighting and fitness communities in one event. It serves as a hub for various activities that cater to fighters, fans, and brands alike.” says Paul Gaw, founder and producer of FightCon.

It’s definitely looking up to be an action-packed day for everyone. FightCon 2017 is happening at the MetroTent Convention Center on Saturday, May 13, 2017. We’ll definitely see you there!
