Always Evolving

As we reach the midway point of another month, things are happening as fast as ever at Evolve MMA.  As our namesake would suggest, there is truly never a dull moment at Evolve as everyone continues on their quest for self-improvement and greatness.  One big announcement is followed by another, and that is what the Evolve MMA family is all about. 

The month started off with the return of UFC legend Rich Franklin to Singapore.  After spending some time training at Evolve last year, Rich made the decision to base his entire training camp here in preparation for his upcoming fight at UFC 148.  Now two weeks into his training camp, Rich has become a familiar face at the Evolve MMA fighter’s program and the Evolve family is thrilled to have him.  Not long after Rich’s arrival, Evolve welcomed former Olympic wrestler and Bellator Welterweight Champion Ben Askren to Singapore.  Ben flew out from the United States to spend a few weeks training with the Evolve Fight Team and our World Champion instructors.  The addition of these two MMA stars to the daily Fighter’s Program has made for some excellent training sessions for all parties involved.  There has been a constant exchange of martial arts techniques and philosophies, and it is safe to say that everyone is growing together as martial artists.

UFC fighter Rafael dos Anjos from the Evolve Fight Team will be competing in his next UFC match in several hours against a tough opponent in Kamal Shalorus.

This month has also marked the beginning of another Evolve Fight Team training camp as they prepare for ONE Fighting Championship: Destiny of Warriors on June 23rd in Kuala Lumpur.  Although the official fight card has not yet been announced, ONE FC has confirmed opponents for both Eddie “Magician” Ng and Leandro “Brodinho” Issa.  We also expect some additional members of the Evolve Fight Team to be added to the card in the coming weeks.  Check out the first trailer for the event below, and start making your plans to attend.  We are looking forward to another strong showing of support from the ever-growing Evolve family.

While it has certainly been an exciting start to the month of May, we don’t have any intentions of slowing down.  Everyone at Evolve understands that in both life and martial arts the learning is never done.  Our mission is to help each other achieve greatness within, and that comes through upholding the highest standard of excellence in everything we do.   We look forward to continuing on this journey towards greatness with you all.
