The cage looked a little too crowded from any point of the Marriott Grand Ballroom. Six fighters engaging in a brawl as three uniformed men look on. This is unlike any we have seen in Philippine MMA. But this is the URCC, and the most compelling things can happen.

On August 12, this same scenario is bound to take place in a bigger venue, specifically at the historic Araneta Coliseum. Last edition’s winners, Team Estroso, will be facing a new set of animals spearheaded by Mark Gatmaitan.

Team captain Sugar Ray Estroso, who surprised everyone with his game-changing strategy the last time out, will be joined once again by Patrick Dos Santos. Completing the group is Iyoy Espinosa, the guy who eliminated Dos Santos in that match. On the other end, Jovit Laxamana and Brian Paule team up with Gatmaitan.

Same rules apply: The 3-on-3 showdown uses the elimination format where a member gets booted out by knockout or submission. In case of a 3-on-1 scenario, the last member standing has the option to continue fighting or take the smarter route and admit defeat.

It may all look like a wild free-for-all, but as Team Estroso proved last time, strategies apply in this team format. To this, Laxamana agrees, “Bukod sa individual training, we make it a point to train together. This way, magkakaroon kami ng chemistry at ma-execute namin ng mabuti ang game plan namin. To the fans, expect a war dahil walang susuko dito.”

Also on the card are nine equally thrilling matches, including four title fights in Chris Hofmann vs. Robert Sothmann, Derrick Easterling vs. Jiar Castillo, Do Gyeom Lee vs. Jojo Orao, and Fritz Biagtan vs. Solomon Dultra. Seriously, you don’t want to miss this.
