The Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) will be holding its 26th major event on July 25, and the card will feature a championship bout.

URCC 26: Domination is set for the Fonatna Convention Hall in Angeles City, Philippines and sources close to the promotion have confirmed with that featherweight champ Reydon “Red” Romero and middleweight Chris Hofman will both be on the card.

Romero captured the title in November 2013 by submitting Ricardo Sapno via rear-naked choke at URCC 24: Uprising. He fought once in 2014 under the Rebel FC banner, losing to Yojiro Uchimura via TKO. URCC 26 could mark his re-entry into the winner’s circle and his first successful URCC title defense.

Hofman, meanwhile, is an exciting up-and-comer who showed off his striking prowess by knocking out Nickson Kola in the first round of their URCC 25: Takeover bout last October 2014.

There’s no word yet on who these two will be fighting. We’ll have more on URCC 26 as the event nears.
