Matapos manalo ng limang sunod sunod na laban, ang Multiple-time Wushu World Champion na si Rene “The Challenger” Catalan ay nararamdamang isang hakbang na lamang siya para maabot ang pinakapinapangarap niyang maging Mixed Martial Arts World Titleholder sa ONE Championship

Pero meron pa siyang isang pagsubok na kailangang lagpasan, ang dating ONE Strawweight World Champion na si  Yoshitaka “Nobita” Naito at maghaharap sila sa ONE: REIGN OF VALOR na gaganapin sa Thuwunna Indoor Stadium, Yangon, Myanmar sa Biyernes, Marso 8.

“Definitely, this is the toughest and biggest match of my career,” bahagi ni Catalan.

“Naito is a former World Champion, well-experienced. “We all know how dangerous he is on the mat, but I’m confident with my skills. I will do whatever it takes to win and get my title shot.”

Si Catalan ay masasabing isa sa magagaling na kalaban sa division dahil sa kanyang five-match winning streak sa opening ng kanyang campaign sa ONE Championship na may back-to-back losses.

“For the past few months, I’ve been focusing on my ground game especially with my takedown defense with the help of our Philippines and SEA Games wrestling champ Roque Verangel Mana-ay Jr,” bahagi ni Catalan.

“This is definitely one of the best camps I had, which is just in time for the most important match of my career.”

“I’ve been training for these kinds of guys for so long, and I’ve been training hard almost everyday,” sabi niya..

“I feel good and confident about this match. I will win in Yangon and put myself closer to my dream of becoming a World Champion.”
