One of the fastest growing distribution and direct selling companies in the Philippines, Santé International is now eyeing its sights to support the sport of mixed martial arts.
“We have supported triathlon for the past five years and Sante is looking to support another sport, to inspire more of our distributors, not only in the Philippines but worldwide,” said Joey Marcelo, CEO, Sante International. “One of our triathletes Louie Sangalang who is also an MMA fighter, and through our conversations, I really saw the potential of the sport of MMA since is now gaining popularity globally,” added Marcelo.
Last December, “The Rebel” clashed with Thai star Rika “Tinydoll” Ishige at ONE: Warriors of the World in Bangkok, Thailand. Although she lost that fight, it did not hamper the fiery Filipino from going back to the drawing board and improving her over-all fight plan, with the help of her team, Coach Andrew Benibe and Louie Sangalang.
“As Sante is heading for the global market, we saw Rome’s tenacity and passion towards what she is doing. I even told Rome that she can be the country’s Ronda Rousey and I believe in that. And Sante will be supporting her through thick and thin. We are very confident that our partnership with Rome, Sante will be creating the next MMA champion that the world will be excited about” said Marcelo.
Make way for the new champion, Sante Fight Team’s Rome “The Rebel” Trinidad as she fights on May 12, at ONE: GRIT AND GLORY, which broadcasts live from the Jakarta Convention Center in Indonesia.
