Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) at Casino Filipino Battle Extreme Tournament of Stars (CF BETS) featured a bout between the most recognizable fighter in the promotion Caloy ‘Bad Boy’ Baduria and Jess Dan Dela Pena as the main event on January 28 at Waterfront Manila Pavillon Hotel and Casino.
Baduria absolutely dominated Jess Dan Dela Pena. One big straight punch slumped Dela Pena. His first-round knock out win made the crowd go wild and loud.
Askar Mozharov landed lots of punches in the co-main event. Mozharov pulled Arvin Chan against the cage and took him down. He was looking for a guillotine but Chan was still defending. They scrambled a bit but the Ukrainian eventually finished the Filipino with a triangle choke. He calls out Chris Hofmann “You’re next.”
Reydon Romero and Rahul Raju went head-to-head on a three round special bout. The former featherweight champion is heading to the 1 Million ROAD FC Tournament in Korea after qualifying with a win by unanimous decision.
The prelim fights were just as good as the main card.
Joevincent So started off the fight well and bagged a few extremely close rounds. Ariel Lampacan escaped all of So’s submission attempts, and then submitted him. Punches thrown and the punches landed ended up in a TKO victory for Lampacan.
Great fight for Rodian Menchavez. First round victory by rear naked choke. Menchavez with a very fast paced and very aggressive opening. Hard punches and dominant control on the ground after a hard takedown.
What a comeback and very impressive win from Louie Sevilla who was being pound on the ground by Kervin Lampacan. He was quick on the mat and his transition to armbar was very smooth which forced his opponent to tap.
These pairs battled solidly and these men deserve credits for the performances they put on.
