Lions Nation MMA partners with Payantog Sports to elevate training facilities

Lions Nation MMA has taken a significant step forward by welcoming Payantog Sports as its “new team partner.”

The announcement initially came during the camp’s first-anniversary celebration at the Landslide Martial Arts Training Center in La Trinidad, Benguet last June 22.

Both entities publicly confirmed their mutual ties a week later.

Established in 2015, Payantog Sports is regarded as the top manufacturer of combat sports gear and equipment in the Philippines.

Under the Memorandum of Agreement signed by the two parties, the Landslide Martial Arts Training Center is set for a comprehensive upgrade. Courtesy of Payantog Sports, the facility will be furnished with top-of-the-line equipment, transforming it into a state-of-the-art training hub.

“This partnership is a game-changer for us. With Payantog Sports on board, we are equipped to provide our athletes with the best training environment and gear, setting a new benchmark in Philippine MMA,” said Eduard Folayang, the stable’s chairman and co-founder.

“Their dedication to quality and innovation aligns perfectly with our vision for the future.”

Moreover, Payantog Sports will become the official outfitter for Lions Nation MMA in all domestic and international competitions, providing each member on its active roster with a personalized uniform.

Adding to the excitement, the joint venture will also introduce the Lion’s Roar Collection, a limited-edition line of gear and apparel co-branded by Lions Nation MMA and Payantog Sports.

The timing of this collaboration couldn’t be more opportune, coming on the heels of Lions Nation MMA’s eventful inaugural year.

Gelyn Aquino, the owner and operations manager of Payantog Sports, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership.
