URCC to crown first women’s champion this October

Universal Reality Combat Challenge, the country’s first professional mixed martial arts promotion, is preparing a stacked card in its return to the Marriot Grand Ballroom in Paranaque City on Sunday, October 9.

In a report by our friends over at Dojo Drifter, Subsports Philippines standout Geli Bulaong (1-0) is set to take on Chinese MMA fighter Yan Xiao Nan (7-1) for the inaugural URCC Women’s Flyweight Championship.URCC-27-Geli-Bulaong URCC to crown first women's champion this October Mixed Martial Arts News URCC  - philippine sports news

Bulaong made an impressive debut during URCC 27: Rebellion as she submitted Jen Damaso via a standing guillotine choke in just three minutes.

On the other hand, Yan made her debut with the URCC a year ago during URCC 26: Domination. The Chinese warrior made quick work of Dolores Meek, stopping Meek with two minutes to spare in the first round. She then kept herself busy, fighting under the Zhong Wu Championship and Road FC promotions.

Two other championship bouts have been confirmed for the event.
