AS a longtime fan of mixed martial arts competitions, I can tell you it was a great pleasure to interview MMA fighters Kimo and Heath Herring
. Kimo and Heath dropped by the INQUIRER.net office to help promote the "Ring of Fire: World Team Challenge" competition organized by Proelite.com
and Platinum Fighting Productions
, which will be held at 1 p.m. at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City on Dec. 9.
Here are two video clips taken by INQUIRER.net reporter Alex Villafania.
Here's a clip of Kimo (left) and Benny Tuazon Jr., president of Fearless Fighting Productions, encouraging Filipino fans to watch "Ring of Fire" this Sunday.
And here are Kimo (left) and Heath gamely demonstrating a choke hold. These two fighters were such good sports in granting our requests, especially since Kimo has an injury.
Here are some photos taken at the INQUIRER.net office.
From left to right, that's Kimo, Alex, me and Heath. Photo taken by INQUIRER.net editorial assistant Feliza Cana.
Here's a group pic with other members of the INQUIRER.net team taken by Alex.
Heath, by the way, went to the office with his girlfriend, professional poker player Lacey Jones
