De Tomas, Lee, Bulaong, and Hofmann continue in their winning ways
The Marriot Grand Ballroom once again became host to a historic Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) fight night on Sunday, November 6, 2016 which featured the Fight Farm Finale, four championship bouts and the first-ever 3-on-3 exhibition match in the Philippines.
Fight Farm Finale
Jiar “Twister” Castillo proved that he is the top flyweight prospect as he got the unanimous nod from the judges to become the inaugural Fight Farm flyweight champion. The storied one-eyed-fighter seemed sharp as he went toe-to-toe against KO machine, Norman Agcopra.
The reality show featured fighters from the Academy Fighting Championship (AFC) and was shown on ABS-CBN Sports+Action.
Light heavyweight champion Chris Hofmann showed John “Outlaw” Adajar how moving down a division won’t mess with his knockout power. With only three weeks to prepare, Hofmann dropped down 19 lbs to meet the welterweight Adajar at 185 lbs.
Hofmann dropped Adajar with a flying knee which forced the challenger to verbally submit 1:18 of the second round.
Post-fight, the now two-division URCC champion expressed his desire to be on the URCC San Francisco card in January.
Women’s Flyweight Championship
Filipina fighter Geli Bulaong became the first URCC women’s flyweight champion as she dominated Yan Qui Hui of China.
Referee Franco Rulloda was forced to stop the fight after a ground and pound flurry from Bulaong held the Chinese Sanda veteran helpless in the final seconds of the first round.
