There are more than 13 Filipino professional mixed martial artists who are expected to fight in 2020. But not all these MMA fighters in the Philippines will compete more than once within the year.

The Philippines is home to several sports stars including boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, 41, racing driver Marlon Stöckinger, 28, and pocket billiards player Francisco “Django” Bustamante, 56. The current president of the Southeast Asian country is Rodrigo Duterte, 74.
