Speakers for the Conference/Symposium


Mr. Ferdinand “Papa Goat” Munsayac

Will discuss the Road Map from the Grass Root level all the way in preparation for the international stage.

UGB MMA was created and founded by Ferdinand Munsayac, a former US Navy Chief who has always been fascinated with combat sports and martial arts.

So, when he decided to retire in the Philippines after 20 years of military service, putting up a gym and fighting sports promotion became his focus. Munsayac opened The Goat Locker Boxing Gym in 2011, which also offers Mixed Martial Arts, FMA, and Muay Thai. He later launched a platform for amateur fighters designed to groom fighters before they plunged into professional leagues—thus Underground Battle MMA was born.

Ferdie created this company with the advocacy of helping talented yet underprivileged Filipino martial artists. Having had to go through many hardships himself, Ferdie knows what it is like to need help from others to achieve one’s dreams. That is why Ferdie has dedicated the past 9 and half years of his life-extending his help to the Filipino martial arts scene.

Striegl grew up in Japan during the heyday of Pride FC, and watching Japan’s biggest MMA show on TV was part of his regular routine. He soon followed in his brother’s footsteps, training in Tae Kwon Do and Wrestling before making the transition to MMA during his university years.
