Mixed Martial Arts, as the name suggests, is a sport that combines the disciplines of different combat sports on one grand fighting stage. Take Muay Thai’s damaging strikes, wrestling’s hardnosed force, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu’s submission savvy, roll it all into one and you get the complete MMA athlete.
Putting this idea into practice is easier said than done. It takes guts and a whole lot of grit to become an MMA fighter and Filipino-American Mark Striegl has proven that he has what it takes to be the sport’s next top flight star.
Known for his nickname “Mugen”, Striegl has amassed an impressive career in different international fighting organizations such as Legend FC in Hong Kong, Dare Championships in Thailand, and the Philippines’ own URCC (Universal Reality Combat Championships). He most recently fought for the featherweight title of the PXC (Pacific X-treme Combat) before being beaten, his first in 13 professional fights, by Korean Jang Yong Kim.
Striegl assures though that the defeat is just a minor detour on his climb up the MMA mountain. Since then, Striegl has dedicated himself to get back in track to title contention and possibly a shot at signing with top MMA suit UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championships). Staying true to form, Striegl recently earned the gold medal in the under 70-kilogram division of the Freestyle Wrestling event of the PSC-POC Philippine National Games.
Considering the conditioning needed to grind through grueling training sessions, Striegl is confident that his excellent fighting skills are well complemented by his ability to stay in impeccable shape. Healthway Medical, with its trusted and most-preferred network of mall-based clinics, supports Striegl on his way to the top by recently making him the company’s newest HealthCheQ ambassadors.
Currently in the peak of his career, Striegl needs nothing short of the best support system to stay on his game and to take care of his health and wellbeing. Having been personally helped by Healthway Medical before, during, and after every fight, Striegl gives his full confidence in the HealthCheQ service.
“Mark is a top-class athlete and one of the most gifted fighters in the world. It is our pleasure on his corner, ensuring that he goes out with full confidence in his strength, fitness, and conditioning,” says Healthway Medical’s Marketing Manager Joven Alcala. “The best deserves only the best and with the health services offered by HealthCheQ, Healthway Medical guarantees that Mark gets the proper attention and treatment needed to help him through his rigorous training.”
