URCC 28: Vindication will feature four title bouts. Four warriors will cement and defend their place as the Champions of their divisions.
Do Gyeom Lee will go in a war with Ryan Dela Cruz for the featherweight championship bout as the main event. Two stand up fighters and both have the ability to knock people out. We see this battle is not going to a decision. These two guys will keep come forward to each other, put everything behind their punches to finish!
South Korean Do Gyeom Lee claimed URCC Featherweight title just last April 23, 2016 at URCC 27: Rebellion. He defeated Red Romero via TKO at 0:57 of round two. During their fight, Do Gyeom Lee survived a first round onslaught before dominating the second round and immediately dethroned the Filipino URCC champion, Red Romero in the URCC 27: Rebellion at the Marriott Grand Ballroom that night. The fight was almost over in the opening round after Romero took advantage of Lee’s slip to land a vicious flying left kick to the head. Romero then viciously pounded on the challenger but the Korean somehow managed to hold his ground and recovered after the bell rang.
The action was on different tune come the second round as Lee came out firing as if he didn’t sustain any damage at all!!! Kid Tornado connected on a barrage of punches to Romero’s head that caused the Filipino’s head bounce off the canvas. The standing southpaw, Kid Tornado tried a rushing 1-2-1 combination, with the third one connecting cleanly on Romero. Red backed up, trying to feint the damage done by Lee, but Lee smelled blood and went after him. Combining unrelenting strikes with vicious knees, Lee caught Romero with at least two knees, causing Romero to crumble onto the mat. Stepping over his visibly hurt opponent and raining down 6, 7, 8 unanswered strikes, referee Joey Lepiten had to call a stop to the contest, declaring Lee as the new URCC featherweight champion at o:57 seconds of the very first round. WHAT A COMEBACK!!!! Then, after that fight… The BK Wang Ho fighter became the promotion’s new Featherweight(145 lbs.) king in only his second appearance in the promotion.
In Do Gyeom Lee’s first URCC appearance, he got an upset victory over crowd favorite Drex Zamboanga with a TKO via referee stoppage at URCC 26: Domination.
The South Korean champion (2-1-0) will defend his belt against a tough Hawaiian challenger, Ryan Dela Cruz(5-2-0).
Ryan Dela Cruz is the current Destiny MMA Featherweight World Champion and is carrying a (5-2-0) MMA record. Two losses were by submission. He will debut inside the URCC cage and is excited to make a statement by challenging the young and current URCC Featherweight champion, Do Gyeom Lee. His deep experience in amateur bouts can also make the difference.
Dela Cruz is a well-rounded and explosive MMA fighter that is well-versed good stand-up specialist. Four of his last wins are by KO/TKO. So, expect a finish because this guy wants a brand new belt for his budding MMA career.
Watch as Hawaii-based Filipino-Spanish Ryan Dela Cruz is looking to get back in the win column and guns for URCC Featherweight gold when he challenges Do Gyeom Lee. ‘Kid Tornado’ is ready for his first title defense. Two strikers go head to head at URCC 28: Vindication, November 6 at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in Resorts World, Manila.
