URCC 28: Vindication Was Arguably One Of The Best Fight Cards

URCC 28: Vindication was as BIGGEST BADDEST as I expected to be. The preliminary card bouts had action-packed and multiple finishes. Ref had to stop the fight as Mechavez pounded out Macaria via TKO (doctor stoppage) in round  two. Solomon Dultra also finished MJ Abrillo in the second round by way of submission. Drex Zamboanga climbed to the top of the cage celebrating for choking out Sem Bicaldo.
Do Gyeom Lee successfully defended his featherweight title vs. Ryan Dela Cruz. An elbow opened up a cut above Lee’s forehead and leg kicks rendered the Filipino’s left leg swollen. After the five rounds of back and forth, Lee was the winner by unanimous decision. Two warriors with plenty of motivations to get the win co-headlined the night. Both have all the makings for a great fight. CJ De Tomas with series of slams to the ground outwrestled Alvin Ramirez. Blood splattered on Ramirez from the knee to the head he gave to De Tomas. Kastigo had some great three rounds but slowed down. The flyweight championship still went to De Tomas by judges decision. A first round TKO win gave Geli Bulaong the first URCC female championship crown ever. She utilized some great ground and pound to put away Yan QiHui. Bulaong was confident and controlling that she landed some big shots and finished her Chinese opponent. Chris Hofmann’s knee dropped John Adajar before crunching his head with punches on the canvas. Holfmann claimed the middleweight strap with his second round TKO. He is now the URCC’s two-division champion. Both fighters stepped in on short notice to face each other.
The 3-on-3 match stole the show big time. It was one hell of an out war between Iyos Espinosa, John Rey Larena and team captain Arvin “Asintado” Chan vs. Mark Palomar, Patrick Dos Santos and team captain Panchito “Sugar Ray” Estroso. Team Estroso won the first ever 3 on 3 match in Asian MMA and URCC history. All six of the competitors nearly set off a brawl inside the cage.
Former flyweight champion Red Romero and Jiar Castillo were also victorious in this event. They went toe to toe for three rounds before they took the win by unanimous decision.
