Mark Striegl former One Championship Bantamweight, Current URCC Featherweight Champion and Combat Sambo Gold Medalist at the South East Asia Games.
32 year old’s UFC Newcomer debut is against another newcomer in Timur Valiev former PFL Fight who had a 8-1 record. MMA prospect that I’ve been looking forward to watching compete in the UFC.
Both fighters are making there MMA dreams a reality as they fight on UFC Fight Night: Munhoz vs Edgar prelims.
Even though Timur Valiev is the more exciting, Interesting prospect with more notoriety don’t count out Mark Striegl. Understand Valiev comes from the MMA hotbed of Russia where Russia grows and prospers savages.
However Phillipines is a underrated country for growing fighters such as Brandon Vera, Stephen Loman(Brave CF Bantamweight Champion),
“Everyone knows that when I go out there it’s never boring so they can expect an action-packed fight. This is an explosive Russian fighter from the mountains of Dagistan and I’m from the mountains of Baguio so it’s gonna be a wild fight,” said Striegl.https://www.cnnphilippines.com/sports/2020/8/14/Fil-Am-MMA-fighter-Mark-Striegl-makes-UFC-debut-on-August-22-.html
Agree with Mark Striegl that this fight will be wild but I believe he’ll get the win on August 22nd. He’s a talented Philippines prospect with a win win over Kai Kara France which says a lot because we all know how talented Kai is.
Wins in the third best MMA promotion, One Championship help as well. Accomplished everything on the Asia Scene now it’s time for Striegl to show what he’s made of in a short notice fight against Timur Valiev.
“I’m just taking advantage of the opportunity. You have to keep trying if this is your passion. I fought everywhere but the UFC is the promotion that has eluded me in my career. And now I’m trying to make this happen,” he said.https://www.bworldonline.com/filipino-mma-fighter-mark-striegl-excited-over-possible-ufc-debut/
