Predator Partners with ONE Championship – Conquering New Worlds

The objective of ONE Championship is to generate as much excitement as possible for their partners, according to Victor Cui, their CEO. He also said that the partnership with Predator is an exciting one,as it helps them bring their unique MMA brand to the very appreciative Filipino audience. As he said, both ONE Championship and Predator are world-class brands, and together they will bring top-notch action and entertainment for the fans.
The official partner of ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY. Predator sponsored one of the main fights, specifically the fight before the bout for the title of Folayang and Ting for the ONE Lightweight World Championship. Whoever wins the match will also take home the ultimate gaming laptop, the Predator 21 X, helping them to conquer not only the ring but any world through Predator.
Ray Gozon, Predator Philippines Senior Marketing Manager, said that there is more to gaming than cool graphics and great sound effects. Gaming, he said, is about gamers becoming their characters and conquering the galaxies they play in.
A True Powerhouse – The Predator 21 X
“Serious gamers have intense skill, focus, and fury if they are to destroy their enemies. This is why ONE Championship is the perfect partner for us – ONE Championship fights and fighters embody the intensity that our gamers experience on Predator machines.” Said Gozon as well.
Predator Philippines showcased the Predator 21 X, a 21-inch curve screen laptop to an audience of Philippine media and gaming fanatics. This powerful machine allows for a completely immersive gaming experience. Using G-SYNC technology, gamers get to see all their opponent’s movements with no delay. This machine is packed with custom-engineered five-fan cooling. It also comes with top-of-line power for really fast gaming. On top of all that this beast called Predator 21 X has HiFi quality sounds with Cherry MX keyboard to allow better controls.
“On the outside, MMA is extremely physical, but it is as much a mental game as it is a physical sport,” said Gozon. “The level of professionalism that goes into fighting in the ring and gaming in a new world is often understated. A lot of strategy comes into play, and you see these fighters go into beast mode as soon as they step into the ring. This is how gamers are – they may be everyday Juans on the streets, but as soon as they sit behind that screen, they unleash their inner fighters and immerse themselves into these worlds they enter.
“So what do we do? We give them the ultimate weapon, and that is the Predator,” Gozon concluded.
