Stephen Loman is solidifying his spot as one of the must-watch contenders in the Philippine MMA scene.

Last night, the Cordillera native defeated IMMAF champ Frans Mlambo of Dublin, Ireland at Brave CF in Bahrain.

Mlambo has been hailed by John Kavanagh, the coach of UFC champ Conor McGregor, as “UFC caliber.” If that’s an accurate assessment by Kavangh, then we could say the same about Loman, who picked up the decision win over Mlambo after three rounds.

In a pre-fight interview with Dojo Drifter, Loman said that he’d use his striking to set up his takedowns and showcase his grappling: “Strike in, out, move side-to-side or i-takedown at sa ground ko sya kukunin at execute ang mga techniques ko sa grappling.”

He did exactly that. See for yourself here:

Loman represents the new breed of fighter from the famed Team Lakay Gym, which extends its win streak with this latest victory.
