THE EIGHT MAN – TAKAHIRO ASHIDA
Our eighth fighter has officially joined us to make our BATTLE ROYALE complete. He is young but formidable, with a record of 12-2 with a foundation in grounding. Meet Takahiro Ashida. He will be joining his compatriot, former ZST champion Yojiro Uchimura, in our 8-Man KO Tournament, alongside former UFC stars Miguel “Angel” Torres and Will “The Kill” Chope.
REBEL FC 2: BATTLE ROYALE is a knockout tournament that will test the skill and will of eight of the world’s toughest, and most experienced and decorated Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters. These world-class athletes will be officially unveiled to the media on 8 May 2014, 2pm at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre in REBEL FC’s BATTLE ROYALE MEDIA LAUNCH.
The draw for the BATTLE ROYALE fight card is unprecedented in Singapore and has not been done in years. Attending media and invited guests will get to witness first-hand at the BATTLE ROYALE MEDIA LAUNCH on how the top fighters are selected at random for their respective quarter-final bouts. This makes for a tense and exciting viewing and will surely generate plenty of talking points as pundits and media alike analyse and debate who will progress and finally win the tournament.
Aside from the Media Launch on 8 May, you can catch eight-man BATTLE ROYALE tournament team in action from May 6-8 as they embark on a publicity tour in Singapore. They will be spending time visiting selected fight gyms around Singapore to give pointers or conduct fight workshops at the gyms. The fighters will also be filming a television commercial at a Impakt singapore as well as a Meet & Greet session with fans of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) at SAFRA Toa Payoh.
The aforementioned activities are a goldmine of opportunities for interviews and feature stories. We welcome feature writers/editors and journalists as well as their photographers and/or camera crews to be present at the activities we have lined up for our BATTLE ROYALE Media Tour.
