The full fight card for URCC 28 has been announced, and it will feature 3 title fights.
The URCC’s 28th major event, dubbed “Vindication”, is set for November 6 at the Marriot Grand Ballroom and will feature 10 bouts. In the main event, featherweight champ Do Gyeom Lee will attempt his first title defense against Hawaii-based Filipino Ryan Dela Cruz.
Lee is coming off a title win at URCC 27 last April, successfully dethroning Red “The Filipino Bolo Punch” Romero to claim the belt. His challenger is the current Destiny MMA featherweight champ and has a record of 5-2.
In the co-main event, 20-year-old flyweight champ CJ “Golden Boy” De Tomas will attempt his first title defense against URCC vet Alvin “Katigo” Ramirez.
The champ is currently undefeated at 6-0. His superb striking and grappling have led him to the top of the URCC’s 125-pound division. Ramirez, meanwhile, is a striking specialist with sharp submissions. This will be his 4th attempt at a URCC title.
The third title fight of the night will crown the promotion’s first ever female champion. Pinay Geli Bulaong will take on China’s Yan Qi Hui for the flyweight belt.
Bulaong is as well rounded as they come as she’s well-versed in wrestling, jiu-jitsu, and Muay Thai. Yan, on the other hand, is a Sanda striking specialist and a former Yunnan Sanda Championship title holder.
This fight card will likewise host the promotion’s first ever 3-on-3 MMA match, the finale for the AFC’s Fight Farm series, alongside a number of promising and proven local talent.
