New Blood goes to Tarlac for their Sixth Event

Tarlac is bound to witness an exciting local MMA tournament between promising Filipino fighters as The Clash in Tarlac: New Blood MMA Challenge will be holding its sixth event at Tarlac State University Gymnasium on May 21, 2016.

In the main event of the evening, resurgent Rex De Lara will try to extend his win streak to three as he faces veteran Arie Zarco.

After years of absence in the sport, Arie Zarco is making a comeback. “I am very excited. I have trained since the beginning of the year,” Zarco told MMA Philippines about his preparations for the main event bout. “I have all the enthusiasm to fight against De Lara. He is a great a fighter, and I will put all my effort.” Leaving the scene after a disappointing 0-2 start, Zarco is not planning to go home with a loss in the second stanza of his fight career.

On the other hand, coming off wins against Stephen Loman and Darwin Sagurit, Rex De Lara is prepared to add another win in his career resurgence. “I am ready. I just needed to cut some weight. Zarco is one fine fighter. May the best man win.” De Lara is no stranger to disappointment, at one point incurring a string of five losses before his sensational knockout of Loman in a record-setting 12 seconds. As such, he’s taking every fight to tip his career’s scales more favorably and gain as much experience as he can.
