PXC-55: PXC WORLD TILES ARE UP FOR GRABS ONCE AGAIN!

Barrigada, Guam (November 7, 2017) - Pacific X-treme Combat has established itself as one of the top Mixed Martial Arts leagues in the world, and continues to promote action-packed bouts featuring the rising stars of the sport. 3 PXC World Titles are now up for grabs as the Flyweight, Bantamweight and Featherweight Champions of the PXC have all been signed by the UFC, and two of those PXC belts are slated to be awarded to new Champions on November 18th in Guam.

According to PXC Chief Executive Officer, E.J. Calvo, “The UFC is clearly the biggest stage in the sport of MMA, just like the NBA is for basketball, the NFL for football, or the Premier League for soccer. No other sports organization in Guam & the Philippines is regularly producing athletes that sign with these leagues! We are proud to give PXC fighters opportunities to showcase their talents, and our fans benefit from all the great MMA action!”

Flyweight champion Jenel Lausa was picked up recently from Manila. The Philippine standout acquired the Flyweight championship when he beat Crisanto Pitpitunge at PXC-51 earlier this year in January. Lausa was the only Filipino fighter picked up for the UFC Manila card, that has since been postponed and Lausa will instead fight at UFC Fight Night 101 vs Zhikui Yao. Lausa was planning to fight Darren Uyenoyama at PXC-55. Instead, Uyenoyama will now face Rilley Dutro for the vacant Flyweight Title in front of fans in Guam on November 18th.

Undefeated Korean Top Team bantamweight and PXC champion Kwan Ho Kwak is the latest PXC product to join the ranks of the UFC. Like Lausa, Kwak won his title at PXC-51, dethroning Guam’s Kyle Aguon in a 5 round war. The 9-0 Kwak is known for flashy standup and explosive power in his kicks. Kwak was slated to defend his PXC Bantamweight title versus Trevin Jones at PXC-55. Instead, Jones will face a familiar foe…the former-champion, Kyle Aguon, as they face off for the third time…but this time is for the PXC World Title on November 18th in Guam.

Former featherweight champion Alex Volkanovski will make his UFC debut when he faces another PXC veteran in Yusuke Kasuya at UFC Fight Night 101 in his hometown of Australia. Volkanovski was unstoppable during his time at PXC, stopping both Guam’s Kyle Reyes and taking the PXC belt from Japan’s Yusuke Yachi. The 13-1 featherweight was slated to face Rolando Dy at PXC-55 prior to negotiations with the UFC altering the course of his career. Dy will now face Aydin Mrouki as the two Featherweights look to move one step closer to a PXC Title fight.
