Baguio mixed martial artist Dave “Kintas” Bangguigui missed the 10th edition of the ONE Warrior Series held in Singapore recently after four possible opponents have backed out for some reasons.
The OSW was held in Singapore on Feb. 22.
The 24-year-old Bangguigui of Fight Corps MMA, was supposed to fight fellow Filipino MMA fighter Genil Francisco but the latter backed out due to injury in training.
Bangguigui’s first opponent was Ayush Ariungerel of Mongolia but the latter was also injured in training.
Two more opponents were called on short notice but the bout did not materialize.
Fight Corps MMA co-manager Jady Tabora said their camp was surprised with the turn of events, but said the welfare of fighters are paramount.
Tabora said they spent huge amount for Bangguigui’s training, who has nailed two impressive wins in OWS.
The OWS is a travel series search, which aims to discover new martial arts talent across Asia, providing promising young athletes with the platform to unleash their martial arts greatness.
The most impressive performers had the potential to get slots to compete in professional bouts such as the ONE Championship and could earn a contract worth $100,000.
ONE announced that OWS 10 was held with much success, as the world’s top martial arts prospects came out to showcase their skills, while they pursue a six-figure contract with ONE Championship. 
After a series of compelling bouts, Michael Walker, Koji Shikuwa, Marc Grayson, Ryoji Kudo, and Min Hyuk Lee, all received Warrior Bonuses for their efforts. – Harley F. Palangchao
