PXC brings Mixed Martial Arts action to the Big Dome this Nov 17

The big fight of our best MMA fighters is on Nov 17 at the Big Dome, I share here a press release about the MMA tournament.

- Press Release -

Pacific X-Treme Combat (PXC), the premier MMA organization in the Philippines and Asia-
Pacific region is moving to the biggest stage as they move to the SMART Araneta Coliseum for
PXC 34 happening on November 17.

Previous PXC tournaments have been held at the Newport Performing Arts in Pasay City and at
the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

Headlining the star-studded international fight card led are Erwin Tagle, Mark Streigl, Harris
Sarmiento and PXC flyweight champion Ale Cali. It will also have top rising MMA stars from the
Philippines, as well as Hawaii, Guam, Japan & Korea.

The event is expected to draw thousands of MMA fans from all corners of the Philippines and
will be broadcast via satellite on AKTV via IBC13.

For PXC CEO, EJ Calvo, “We are extremely excited about the move to Araneta. Our fighters have
worked hard and performed well, and deserve the exposure this event will bring. PXC, as an
organization, has grown leaps and bounds over a decade, and there is no doubt PXC can stand
up against any MMA promotion in the region right now.”

Calvo added, “Our goal is to continue to grow PXC for the benefit of MMA fans in the
Philippines, as well as for the long-term growth of the sport in the entire region.”

In less than 2 years since PXC arrived in the Philippines, the promotion has clearly established
itself as the premier MMA organization in the country. PXC together with Sports5 – the
sports arm of TV5, has successfully built a mainstream viewing audience, which has attracted
thousands of viewers when PXC events are broadcasted.

In the past three months, PXC has seen two of its top fighters to the Ultimate Fighting
Champion (UFC). PXC Welterweight Champ Hyun Gyu Lim, and Lightweight standout Jon Tuck
were signed by UFC to compete in their upcoming event in Macau on November 10.

PXC prides itself on recruiting and showcasing the best up and coming MMA talent in the Asia-
Pacific region, but also has been known to feature elite fighters from Brazil, Europe, Canada,
and various areas of the US.
