The Philippines is looking forward to a couple of big MMA events in the next few weeks. The first will be ONE FC – Pride of a Nation and then a day later it will be Pacific X-Treme Combats time to shine.
PXC have in a short period of time become a major player in the Philippines with a local TV audience reaches over high half a million viewers and it genuinely sells out it’s events.
The event PXC 33 is going to be on September 1st 2012, at Ynares Sports Arena. Pasig City, Manila.
The Fight Card:
PXC Lightweight Title:
Harris “The Hitman” Sarmiento (34-23) vs Jon “Super Saiyan” Tuck (6-0)
Sarmiento has a bucket load of experience starting his pro career right back in 2002. Tuck on the other hand since 2007 has had just seven bouts all of which he won in the first round. His most famous win was over the URCC champion and present ONE FC fighter Eduard Folayang that took just 8 seconds. (Gorilla Warfare 3, 2009).
Flyweight Title Bout:
Ali “The Young Gun” Cali (4-1) and Erwin Tagle (1-1-2)
Rest of the Card:
Mark “Mugen” Striegl (10-0) vs Robert “The Real Deal” Wusstig (4-5)
Striegl is the newest addition to the PFC roster a very talented and experienced fighter with Legend, URCC, PRO and DARE bouts under his belt. He hoped to fight Mitch Chilson at ONE FC in Manila but he was ignored. ONE FC’s loss is most defiantly the PXC’s gain and having signed a three-fight deal he must have a chance at a featherweight title shot soon. He will certainly become a very big crowd favorite and he hopes to really make a name for himself amongst the Philippine public.
Anthony Leone (11-5) vs Satoshi Inaba (8-7-2)
Leone is a Strikeforce and Bellator veteran and shows the higher level that PXC is aiming for.
Richie “Rich” Redman (2-2) vs Sung Chan Hong (debut)
Troy Bantiag (2-0) vs Jon Delos Reyes “The Heat” (6-1)
Eugene Toquero (2-0) vs Leonard “Bruce” Caliwa (1-1)
Victor “Gladiator” Torre (6-1) vs Jerome “Torogi” Wanawan (2-0)
Kristoffer “Ludakris” Persson (1-1) vs Isaiah Ordiz (no record)
Dave Galera (1-0) vs TBA
Arex Montalban (1-0) vs Salvador “Badong” Domasian (1-3-1)
