On February 16th, a flyweight scrap is set between WEC and Strikeforce vet Alvin Cacdac (11-9) and undefeated Hawaiian prospect Louis “Da Last Samurai” Smolka for the no. 1 flyweight contender spot. PXC 35 is scheduled on February 16 at Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig City, Philippines. The said event will feature PXC lightweight championship fight between Harris Sarmiento and Isaiah Ordiz and the co-main event fight between Joe Taimanglo taking on undefeated Japanese fighter, Michinori Tanaka for the PXC interim bantamweight championship.
Cacdac and Smolka are two of the most thrilling and skilled fighters in PXC’s flyweight division. Both fighters bring an aggressive, stand-up focused fighting style to the PXC cage. This will be Avlin’s second PXC appearance since defeating Rex Wa-o via RNC at PXC 32 in July of 2012. Cacdac is a fighter who will trade punches with you; and if you will but if you’ll take him down, he will surely find a way to make you tap.
Fans can expect more of the same exciting fighting style from Cacdac. But he is up against a tough competitor in Smolka, who trains out of 808 Top Team in Hawaii alongside PXC lightweight champ Harris Sarmiento and bantamweight contender Russell Doane. Smolka possess a never-say-die attitude whenever he is inside the cage and the more you hit him in the face, the more he will come at you and try to put you to sleep. Smolka is training tirelessly to win the fight and stay unbeaten inside the PXC cage.
Both guys got their own definitive advantages over each other; Cacdac’s edge lies in his wrestling and boxing, while Smolka will be looking to use his excellent jiu-jitsu to earn the W. But regardless of the outcome, the audience is guaranteed an action-packed fight.
