The Guam-based promotion Pacific Xtreme Combat (PXC) returns to Manila on June 13, 2015, at the Ynares Center in Pasig City with a card headlined by two championship bouts.
In the co-main event, Filipino-American, Alvin Cacdac, will defend his PXC Flyweight Championship for the first time against Lakay MMA’s Crisanto “the Slugger” Pitpitunge. Then, in the main event, “The Incredible” Roland Dy will challenge for the PXC Bantamweight Championship in a rematch against Guam’s Kyle Aguon.
With just less than two weeks away from PXC 48, here’s a brief introduction to the four fighters headlining the card:
PXC Flyweight Championship: Alvin Cacdac vs. Crisanto Pitpitunge
Nor-Cal Fighting Alliance’s Alvin Cacdac (10-15) was recently minted as the bantamweight champion of PXC in defeating Ernesto Montilla by submission last November 15, 2014, here in Manila. Cacdac dominated the entire fifteen minutes of action in the championship match before locking in a rear naked choke to seal the win.
After the match, the MMA journeyman, who has ran the worldwide MMA circuit, called out UFC Veteran, Darren Uyenoyama, or former PXC Bantamweight Champion, Crisanto Pitpitunge, for his next match. He had his wish granted as Pitpitunge accepted the challenge.
Lakay MMA’s Crisanto “the Slugger” Pitpitunge (7-3) has been a mainstay in the PXC since 2011. His three losses came from ONE Championship bantamweight, Mark Striegl, UFC veteran, Michiniro Tanaka, and Korean, Han Bin Park. “The Slugger” is the former PXC Bantamweight Champion, who lost the title to Tanaka last May 20, 2013 in Pasig City. During his most recent outing, also during the PXC 46, the Baguio-native defeated Thai legend Rambaa “M16” Somdet by split decision.
With both men riding a high, this will be the perfect time for both men to square-off and will bring the house down at the Ynares Center.
PXC Bantamweight Championship: Kyle Aguon vs. Rolando Dy
Guam-based fighter, Kyle Aguon, in his professional MMA career, has fought for one promotion only: the PXC. The fighter, out of Spike 22, has fought in 12 bouts, and has won eight of them. His most recent win was against Filipino Rolando Dy, which ended in a controversial split decision. The match was for the vacant PXC Bantamweight Championship.
Kratos MMA’s Rolando Dy is the son of former WBC Super Featherweight Champion, Rolando Navarrete. Dy has compiled a 5-3 MMA record with losses coming from Elliott Untalan, ONE Championship’s Ev Ting, and the aforementioned loss to Aguon. After the bout with Aguon, Rolando Dy posted this on his personal Facebook account: “I’m not a sore loser, but I am sure I won that fight. I sacrificed everything for that fight, but they stole it from me. I’m sorry for all those who expect that I’ll bring the belt back home,” he posted.
Dy has been waiting for this rematch since October of 2014. Now the grudge match has been set with a at lot stake.
June 13 will surely be an explosive night for fight fans.
