FIL-AM UFC FIGHTER MARK STRIEGL FOLLOWS PACQUIAO’S MOUNTAIN PATH TO GLORY

Mark Striegl makes his UFC debut in Abu Dhabi this weekend having taken a path forged by centuries of feared Filipino warriors and followed by boxing great Manny Pacquiao.

Striegl based himself in the cool mountain climate of Baguio City and it paid off as he became the only Philippines-based fighter on the UFC’s books.

Baguio City — on the northern Philippines island of Luzon — has in the past hosted eight-weight world champion Pacquiao’s training camps.

The 32-year-old MMA bantamweight Striegl first visited Baguio a decade ago for a mixed martial arts bout.

He met a local woman and fell in love both with her and the popular Filipino holiday destination, which offers welcome respite from the sticky heat of much of the sprawling tropical archipelago.
