Let the revolution continue as Pacific X-Treme Combat (PXC), the top mixed-martial arts event in the Philippines, returns with another action-packed night on July 14 in Manila, Philippines to be held at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.
PXC 31 will feature some of the best fighters from the US, Guam, Hawaii & the Philippines. Headlining is the title fight between Justin “The Shocker” Cruz and Crisanto “The Slugger” Pitpitunge for the PXC Bantamweight Title.
The big event will be aired on AKTV on IBC 13.
The main event features two of the top 135-pound MMA fighters in the region, Justin Cruz and Crisanto Pitpitunge. Both men have had success in various MMA tournaments in the Asia-Pacific region but have not faced each other in PXC.
Justin Cruz, a Guam native, will be defending his PXC championship belt. He hasn’t lost a fight since securing the PXC title in early 2010. Cruz was also an undefeated champion in the URCC, and made the move to fight exclusively with Pacific X-Treme Combat once it landed here in the country.
Pitpitunge contends in his first title fight after winning his first three matches in PXC events for the past year. Pitpitunge is part of the famed Team Lakay, which has produced some of the best MMA fighters in the country.
“Justin Cruz is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the region, and a proven champion while Crisanto Pitpitunge has earned his shot at a title and could be the next big name in MMA throughout Asia. This main event will be a war,” said EJ Calvo, PXC General Manager and Promoter.
PXC 31 will also feature some of the best MMA talent in the Philippines, as well the return of Filipino-American fighters Tristan Arenal and Alvin Cacdac, who have both competed in Strikeforce in the US, and now fight exclusively in Asia for PXC.
PXC 31 is presented by San Mig Strong Ice and AKTV on IBC 13 with special thanks to E-Games, FHM Philippines, Best Western F1 Hotel, Gold’s Gym, Beer Below Zero, Healthway Agility Phil, Real Sports, Loqal.ph and Amber Ultra Lounge.
