Mixed Martial Arts

Resurgent Jeremy Miado hoping to fight in Manila once more

Known for his tremendous one-punch power, Filipino strawweight Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado (8-4) is arguably one of the most underrated competitors in the field of mixed martial arts in the Philippines.

However, he lost all sorts of momentum after bowing to former ONE Strawweight World Champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke in their much-anticipated rematch earlier this year.

The 26-year-old Albay City native admitted that he was outworked by the Thai legend in their rematch at ONE: Call of Greatness in Singapore last February, yielding to his rival via second-round TKO.

But he knows that he’s a lot better now.

“To be honest, I am disappointed in my last match. I wasn’t able to show everything that I worked for. I also struggled with my conditioning and it led to my poor performance in that night,” said Miado.

“I know it hurts as it dampened my position in the rankings but I know that it will only teach me to be a better athlete moving forward.”

Seeing the things that he needed to work on, Miado is now looking to get back to action as soon as possible.

“In martial arts, you either win or learn and in that case I learned. I know that my opponents are all top flight and that’s why I need to just keep on getting better and better,” said Miado.

“I’m excited to fight again. Though there isn’t anything scheduled for me, I continue training and sparring non-stop.I want to make a statement in my next fight. Not just any other win, but a statement.”

Miado is very vocal of his desire to become a World Champion in the Home of Martial Arts, but after evaluating his previous performances, he realized that there are still tons of things to work on before he can get the shot for the division’s gold-plated strap.

“I’ve always dreamt of being a World Champion and I know that it’s not just enough to dream, I have to work for it,” said Miado.

“I’m still far from where I really want to be, but I have to start now if I want to be successful in this sport.”

Miado already has a date in mind if he’s to be asked.

“I want to compete in Manila if given the chance. Anytime, I’m ready. But this is the perfect event for me to showcase my hunger to win.”
