URCC Global Welterweight Champion John Adajar is all set to return to his pageant beginnings. In a presscon held earlier at Annabel’s in Quezon City, an official announcement was made by National Director Arnold Vegafria. This 30 year-old 5’11” strongman from Laguna – a cyclist and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner – will conquer Poland as the appointed representative and Mister Supranational Philippines in Mister Supranational 2021. This stint will be his one final hurrah to capture the big glory in international pageantry and hopefully make the entire country proud.
As a Mixed Martial Artist (MMA) Champion with the moniker “Outlaw”, it’s not hard to either like or hate John. Owning a 5W-1L pro-MMA record, he has garnered fans with his deft skills in the ring and irritated a lot of people with his arrogant persona that he uses to promote fights or regaled them with his looks.But if you look deeper, Adajar is one of those fighters who had to climb their way up the food chain. While being born into a privileged life, “Outlaw” embraced the grind of combat sports where there are more fans than practitioners in his social segment. He wasn’t one of those fighters who just showed up into a pro league even if they haven’t even fought one amateur fight. He was cutting his teeth in the amateur circuit, namely the Academy Fighting Championship being handled by Ron and Aaron Catunao. He was the welterweight champion in the AFC and it was obvious to anyone who saw him fight that he was going to end up in the URCC sooner or later.
Pageant-wise, John was Ginoong Laguna 2014 and competed as a 24 year-old during Misters of Filipinas 2015. He made it to the Top 15 that year, and locked in the learning experience as a life chapter that he would look back to with fondness. After all, he is going to Mister Supranational 2021 armed with the good looks, the grit & guts of a true Filipino and the fighting spirit that made him shine in the worldwide caged fighting arena.
Give it your best shot. Go for it, John!
..gwapong Pinoy.. yes, those eyes.. 😉 i think this face will stand out in Poland..
Bet ko ‘to. Crush ko s’ya. He looks boyish pero hot na hot at lalaking-lalaki. Sana may pa-swim trunk din s’ya na photos para makita natin ang kanyang kahubdan.
John has strong sex appeal
@ serge His strength is his E-Y-E-S.
Whether sullen as in his championship mug or complemented by a black mask (impromptu bike shot), he can easily impregnate with just a longing/loving gaze (official one with Sgt. Pajares).
Look how those twin windows to his soul SMILE with his mouth (top photo)!
(Yes, he is clearly ‘top’.)

POLICE LINE. DO NOT CROSS. Do so at your own peril… Hihihihhh….
Ang daming poknat sa bigote…
Paki ahit nalang lahat para hindi ganyan… 🙄
We can’t deny the fact that the height of some Asian men except mixed race are not as tall like men in the other parts of the world. Representative of Singapore and Nepal are only 5′ 8″ tall. Indonesia and Philippines are both 5′ 11″ tall, considerably that height is tall among Asians. Let us hope John will bring home the title.
Puede na rin!
In case he don’t make it at Mr. Supranational, he should be relegated at Mr. World, papatok yan sa Sports Challenge kahit na gaano ka brusko yung mga makakalaban niya!
Tama yan! Ganyan dapat ang selection criteria nung 2 Arnold ng organization! Yung mga lalaking may sports background! For all I know kaya naka-1st runner up si Andrew Wolff sa MW noon is because of his sports background as Football player of Azkals (tama ba? confused kasi ko sa rugby and football!)
Although sa taste ko lang, kinulang sa guapo points si Atong eh baka sa Poland maging stand out yung pagiging Moreno niya! Trim-trim lang din ng bigote at balbas, yung tipong 4 days old lang hindi yung trying hard to exude masculinity through hirsute! And please no to carrot cut or skinny cut pants on Tuxedo, regular cut lang just like what he was wearing with Leren!
Boxing ba lalabanan nitong John Adajar? O suntukan hahaha. Kinulang sa height si pogi.
Good luck to both of you.
I was mulling the possibility of a first-time Miss- and Mister- win in Poland with Jihane and Okky.
Peru got within a hair of it with Janick and Alonso.
I am quite confident we will finally crack at least the Top 10 (for the guys’ category). @ Jonalyn Hernandez already commanded the planets to safely park Dindi there, too…
MoF 2015… 2014 kasi si Neil Perez (batch mates were Ichin Daclan, Mark Andrew Baron, and our first rep to MUA). ‘Ahhh… 2015 was first attempt ni AR de la Serna, that ‘gwapulis’ who’s now a financial adviser, and of course the Pinoy Alain Delon~Miguel Rodriguez~Christopher Reeve ‘anak’ of Tito Norman, Reniel Villareal… 2015, we hosted Mr. International; Pedro Mendes (Swiss) won… It was also around that time that I first encountered normannorman.com. I’m still here, po!

This post smells like a potential show business foray for Adajar. Does he sing? If so, I have in mind Justin Timberlake, in particular that chapter with material produced by Timbaland.
He looks gcc arab or pakistani. Gwapo Naman Kaso parang 5’10. I’m basing my estimate fr dindi. I’m sure may one inch or two inches heels shoes bung guy
For me 6ft Sana ang guysa male
@ bonsaihater Mukha’ng ayaw na magpa-appoint ni Ameen Sardouk…
Robin Hanrath also was short of 6′.
Public servant, daw, as per the ‘Team-Supra-Fil’ post.
Parang first time rin lang din na-meet ni Boss ALV. Notice how he looks back to the tarp to remember the name… Apparently, connect-connections-with-common-friends was key.
Baka magka-height rin lang sina ni Okky. Magkamukha pa. Twinning.
Cute smile, no? 🙂
