URCC 30 EasterlingHofBiagtan

Three title fights will headline URCC 30 this August 12, 2017.

Following their first foray in the United States early this year, URCC champions Chris Hofmann, Fritz Biagtan, and Derrick Easterling will be putting their titles on the line.

The Filipino-Swiss, two-division titleholder Hofmann (6-1 MMA, 6-0 URCC) will look to continue his winning ways as he attempts to defend his middleweight belt for the third time. Canadian journeyman Robert Sothmann (3-4 MMA, 0-0 URCC) will be challenging Hofmann for his title.

Additionally, pinweight champion Fritz Biagtan (3-0 MMA, 1-0 URCC) will return to the URCC cage to take on the surging Solomon Dultra (4-1 MMA, 4-0 URCC). For the third title fight on the card, new undisputed flyweight king Derrick Easterling will make his Philippine debut against Fight Farm champion Jiar Castillo.

URCC founder and president Alvin Aguilar has confirmed these developments with Dojo Drifter.

Plus, the card will also feature the URCC return of Mark Striegl (15-2 MMA, 2-0 URCC) following his stint with ONE Championship. Former 135-pound champ Andrew Benibe (6-9 MMA, 6-7 URCC) will be welcoming the 29-year-old Fil-American back into promotion.

URCC 30 is set to take place at the Araneta Colosseum on Quezon City.
