MANILA, Philippines — Itatampok ng Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) ang kauna-unahang bareknuckle exhibition bouts sa “Bare Madness” card sa Oktubre 27 sa Xylo sa The Palace sa BGC, Taguig.

Ayon kay URCC foun­der Alvin Aguilar, ito na ang panahon para tangkilikin ng publiko ang bareknuckle fights.

“When we pioneered the MMA fight concept back in 2002, people thought it was too violent, too risky. But look at MMA now,” ani Aguilar sa press confe­rence sa Xylo. “In the same way, it’s worth noting that BKF (Bareknuckle Fight) is steadily gaining popularity in the US and Europe, so it’s only a matter of time before it enjoys mainstream acceptance here.”

Samantala, naniniwala si URCC Global Chairman Arnold Vegafria na ang sport ay may potensyal na makadiskubre ng mga potensyal na world-class Filipino fighters.

“With the harvest of Filipino athletes in recent global competitions, we believe that Filipino fighters are meant for global domination, particularly for this more adrenaline-inducing sport,” sabi ni Vegafria.

Matutunghayan sa pre-event matches ang laban nina top-rank Filipino mixed martial artists John Ornido at Janedie Bernardo sa 135-pound class duel; Ruel Catalan kontra kay Edrion Macatangay sa 125-pound clash; at ang bugbugan nina Rex de Lara at Jayson Margallo sa 125-pound fight.
