“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.”
During the event, they had One Championship’s Vice President and mixed martial artist, Rich Franklin, and One Championship’s Bradon Vera demonstrate different moves to created hype on the event coming on April 21.
Predator is the official partner of ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY’s fight; that happened on April 21. Predator will be sponsoring one of the main card fights of the day and the winner of this main card fight will receive the ultimate gaming laptop, the Predator 21 X.
During the launch, Predator Philippines has presented the beastly Predator 21 X, the world’s first 21 inch gaming laptop w/ curved screen. It also has the G-SYNC technology to let gamers see all their opponent’s movements without delay and react swiftly. It’s paired with the top of the line specs, HiFi audio quality, Cherry MX keyboard w/ PredatorSense adfance control, and runs thru two powerplugs-in for two 330-watt bricks.
“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.”
