If you donâ€™t know anything about MMA, I suggest you watch the movie BOOM!Â It was very fun and entertaining, and you would love the sport (If you donâ€™t love it yet).
If you havenâ€™t heard of PXC, then let me give you a briefer.Â Pacific X-treme Combat is one of Asiaâ€™s biggest and best MMA organizations based in Guam, they soon of course spread there brand to the Philippines and have grown massively since then. PXC has experienced massive growth in both ticket sales and TV viewers.Â Since then it has been tagged the fastest growing sport of MMA.
This February 16th, another PXC fight is about to bring you a packed card including a Lightweight Title Fight and an Interim-Bantamweight Title Fight.Â This will happen at the Ynares Sports Arena.
Featuring the main event is the Lightweight Title Fight with two Philippine fighters Harris Sarmiento (35-34) and Isiah Ordiz (2-0-0) in what must be a holding fight for the belt that Mark Striegl (12-0) is destined to win during the coming year.
Main Event: Sarmiento vs Ordiz, Tiamanglo vs Tanaka
I was there during the last fight of Sarmiento.Â Striegl beat him at 2:37 seconds of Round 1 â€“ I was just getting ready for the fight, and then it was over.Â Well, I guess I need to get used to Strieglâ€™s fights.Â Â The odds must favor Sarmiento because of the high quality opponents he already battled, whereas, Ordiz is relatively inexperience.Â I was there when Odiz had his last fight too, all I can say is â€“ he is ONE FIGHTER!Â Backstage, he kept practicing his moves until the time he was called on stage for his fight.
If Sarmiento wins this fight, he must surely fight Striegl again.
The Interim-Bantamweight Title Fight features Joe Taimanglo (17-4-1) from Guam tackles Japanâ€™s Michinori Tanaka (6-0) these two are both submission experts so expect a highly technical and exciting bout.
