Puro papuri ang natanggap ni Robin “The Ilonggo” Catalan matapos ang laban nila ni Pongsiri “The Smiling Assassin” Mitsatit mula noong umuwi siya dito sa Pinas mula Bangkok kahit pa natalo siya nito.

Nitong Biyernes, Mayo 10 ay na-KO ni MItsatit ang si Catalan sa  ONE: WARRIORS OF LIGHT.

Bumilib si Catalan sa lakas ni Mitsatit kahit nasasaktan ito sa kanyang heel hook sa umpisa pa lang ng kanilang laban.

“He’s tough. I heard his leg pop during my heel hook submission attempt, but he did not tap. He managed to control me in the clinch, and I struggled in trying to take him down again,” sabi ni Catalan.

“Though I lost, I felt like I had a good showing. I just fell short in the end. Rest assured, I’ll learn from this, and this will only benefit me moving forward.

“I knew I was an underdog, but I think I gave it my all. In the end, I fell short, so it’s back to the gym,” bahagi niya.

“I was not able to maintain my position when I was going for submissions. That was my biggest mistake. Eventually, he caught me with a huge knee on my ribs, which has given me problems in the past.”

“I know that a good career still awaits me, for as long as I remain determined and hungry.”
