Submission Sport Philippines’ Roy “Pilipino Badboy” Doliguez will get first dibs at the inaugural ONE World Strawweight Championship, as he takes on Thai and Evolve MMA’s Dejdamrong sor Amnuaysirichoke on May 22, 2015, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Kallang, Singapore.

33 year old native of Sarangani, Roy Doliguez has only been in MMA for four years, but has compiled a 6-1 record. Prior to signing with ONE Championship, Doliguez has made the rounds in the premiere leagues in the country as he competed in both the Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) and the Pacific Xtreme Combat (PXC).

The “Pilipino Badboy” had a 4-1 record in the URCC with his sole loss coming from Dennis “the Dynamite” Salazar in a decision loss. Almost two years since that loss, Doliguez and Salazar faced off yet again, this time under the PXC banner. Doliguez dominated Salazar in three rounds to take a unanimous decision victory.
