Brandon Vera and Ana Julaton recently trained together for their respective One FC fights in California.

During their open media workout at the Elorde Fight Factory in Taguig, the Fil-Am fighters told the press what their training was like.

"That was amazing," Vera opened the conversation.

He added, "Watching Julaton train was cool to watch. It was inspiring."

Vera also said that Julaton, known for her striking being a world champion boxer, even gave him, a ground-and-pound specialist, some tidbits to improve his striking game.

He also said that he was amused at her personality in and out of the fighting area.

"She was an amazing fighter in and out of the ring," Vera said.

On the other hand, Julaton found the joint training a dream come true.

"This is actually a dream. To train together with a fellow Filipino MMA fighter is a breakthrough," she said.

She also expects more Filipino support for her come Friday for Warrior's Way at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Vera will face Igor Subora, while Julaton will take on Walaa Abbas in the said event.
