(PXC) – Pacific X-treme Combat, the region’s premier mixed martial arts organization, pulled off another spectacular event for fans in the Philippines.
On Sept. 1, PXC-33 showcased 10 action-packed bouts in front of a sold-out crowd in the Ynares Sports Arena, Kapitolyo, Pasig City, Philippines. The event broadcast also captured about 500,000 TV viewers.
PXC Lightweight Main Event
One of Korea’s up-and-coming MMA fighters, Seung Hwa Han, immediately pushed the pace in the first round of the non-title bout with PXC Lightweight Champ Harris “Hitman” Sarmiento. Han threw several punches and kicks that put Sarmiento in a tough position, but Sarmiento stood his ground.
The Hitman entered the second and third round poised and ready to take the fight to Han. With relentless takedown attempts and power punches, Sarmiento easily countered what Han had to offer. Han never recovered and Sarmiento won via split decision.
PXC Featherweight Featured Bout
Filipino-American Mark “The Mugen” Striegl has officially arrived. In his PXC debut, Striegl made quick work by disposing of his opponent, Robert “The Real Deal” Wusstig, and showcasing that he is a fighter on the rise.
Wusstig and Striegl are both strong wrestlers and immediately went to the clinch early in the fight. Striegl took the fight to the ground and landed on top with a sweep into side control. Striegl took his time applying an arm lock and submitting Wusstig within two minutes into the first round. It was just business as usual for the undefeated (11-0) featherweight.
