Predator Philippines joins forces with ONE Championship to CONQUER NEW WORLDS

A new partnership has been forged between Predator Philippines and ONE Championship to bring Philippine gaming to new heights. Set at High Grounds Café, an other-worldly gaming café decked out in Predator G1 and G3 gaming units, Predator Philippines and ONE Championship challenged Filipino gamers to prepare for modern combat.

“Gaming is so much more than cool graphics and great sound effects – it’s about every gamer transforming into their characters and conquering new worlds in any galaxy and in any battle,” said Ray Gozon, Predator Philippines Senior Marketing Manager. “Serious gamers have intense skill, focus, and fury if they are to destroy their enemies. This is why ONE Championship is the perfect partner for us – ONE Championship fights and fighters embody the intensity that our gamers experience on Predator machines.”

With an audience of Philippine media and gaming fanatics, Predator Philippines presented the Predator 21 X, a 21-inch gaming laptop with a curved screen that makes for fluid gaming. This powerful machine enables gamers to completely immerse themselves in the future of gaming with G-SYNC technology – it lets gamers see all their opponent’s movements without delay so they can respond swiftly and decisively to any threat. With custom-engineered five-fan cooling, top-of-line power for the fastest gaming in the world, HiFi quality sound, and Cherry MX keyboard for advanced controls with PredatorSense, the Predator 21 X is the ultimate weapon to annihilate any opponent.

Two powerplugs-in for two 330-watt bricks allow anyone with this weapon to game hard for as long has he can survive.

“Predator doesn’t only CONQUER NEW WORLDS of gaming, but it CONQUERS NEW WORLDS of gamers themselves,” said Gozon. “It’s all about making the experience as real as possible.”

Bringing the experience of combat to life are ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera and ONE Championship VP & MMA Legend Rich “Ace” Franklin with a thrilling demonstration of the basics of MMA fighting. They then went head-to-head with a team of media and Predator fans for a round of Overwatch, putting their combat skills to the test in the world of PC gaming.

Predator is the official partner of ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY. Predator sponsored one of the main card fights of the day, which is the fight right before the title fight of Folayang and Ting battle for the ONE Lightweight World Championship.

The winner of this main card fight will receive the ultimate gaming laptop, the Predator 21 X, helping this fighter to conquer not only the ring but any world he chooses through Predator.

“On the outside, MMA is extremely physical, but it is as much a mental game as it is a physical sport,” said Gozon. “The level of professionalism that goes into fighting in the ring and gaming in a new world is often understated. A lot of strategy comes into play, and you see these fighters go into beast mode as soon as they step into the ring. This is how gamers are – they may be everyday Juans on the streets, but as soon as they sit behind that screen, they unleash their inner fighters and immerse themselves into these worlds they enter.

“So what do we do? We give them the ultimate weapon, and that is the Predator,” Gozon concluded.
