Event: PXC 36
Date: March 8, 2013
Venue: UOG Field House, Mangilao, Guam
After a very successful PXC 35 last Saturday, PXC returns to their home turf for PXC 36, scheduled on March 8th, as massive bantamweight fighter, Kyle Aguon (4-3) takes on heavy-handed Trevin Jones (2-1) for the second time and looks to put themselves closer into the bantamweight title picture.
Aguon and Jones are some of those fighters which PXC gave an opportunity establish themselves as one of the region’s best fighters, who both started their career inside the PXC cage. Their first encounter with each other was in April of 2011, where Jones defeated Aguon via UD. It is very interesting fight to see because Kyle Aguon has tremendously improved his game since losing to Jones. On the flip side, Jones only fought once in 2012, when he submitted Josh Duenas. Now, a year since his last win, he will once again fight a guy who he already beaten couple of years ago. Will Trevin Jones score another W against Aguon or can Kyle Aguon even the score against the always dangerous Jones at PXC 36? Stoked for this fight!
Two exciting female MMA fighters will try to get their first pro career win at PXC 37 as Kailin Curran from Gracie Techniques, takes on Kings MMA’s Kaiyana Rain.
Both Curran and Rain has a solid amateur MMA records. Kailin Curran, who trains alongside UFC fighters, Max Holloway and Dustin Kimura, has an amateur record of 3 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw, while Kaiyana Rain is 5-1-1 and 0-1 as a pro, who lost to Tecia Torres in October at Invicta FC 3. Rain who trains with the legendary Rafael Cordeiro in L.A, has an incredible endurance and her approach in every game is very technical, which made her a threat to anyone in her division, while Kailin Curran loves to finish fights early and will not hesitate to trade punches with her foes. I’m really excited to see this one!
Josh “Killa” Calvo (6-2) and Chris “The Maverick” Cisnero (13-5) are both going to make their PXC debut in PXC 37.
Calvo, is a brown belt BJJ specialist from Guam and he is coming off a unanimous decision win over Jerome Jones in November. This kid is a gifted fighter. He is physically and mentally strong and he is arguably one of the deadliest submission artist in the PXC lightweight division. For sure he is aiming for an impressive win for his PXC debut but he knows that he is going to face a tough fighter in Cisnero.
“From what I’ve seen, he (Cisnero) looks tough. Fought some tough guys and is a Bellator veteran. It’s going to be a fun night. I cannot wait.” Calvo said.
Calvo’s opponent, Christ Cisnero is a Bellator veteran who is currently on a two-fight losing kid. Cisnero got some decent submission game in his arsenal, but what makes him more dangerous is his ability to punch with tremendous force behind it. This is going to be an explosive scrap for sure as one of Guam’s top lightweight fighter battles a very durable Hawaiian fighter.
Rising star, Michinori Tanaka from Reversal Gym Yokohama in Japan (6-0) is back and looks to stay unbeaten against an outstanding wrestler from Reign Training Center, “The Original” Caleb Vollotton (3-1).
Tanaka is no doubt, the most dangerous and submission specialist in the PXC today, and the scarier part of it is that he is only 22 years old. He is first scheduled to fight Joe Taimanglo at PXC 35 in Manila but Taimanglo got injured during practice that left Tanaka without an opponent. You already know what happened next; PXC interim fighter was cancelled. But good news came when PXC CEO, EJ Calvo announced that Tanaka will not wait for his next fight to happen as he is scheduled to fight in March 8th against a fellow young fighter in Vollotton. Fresh from his 3rd round RNC win over Russell Doane at PXC 34, Tanaka aims to extend his impressive mma record to 8-0 and looks to add another submission win in his resume when he takes on Vollotton.
“The Original” is not intimidated with Tanaka’s ground game as he is very confident on his wrestling, who trains with UFC middleweight fighter, Mark “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Munoz at Reign MMA alongside “The Juggernaut” Jake Ellenberger, “The Sandman” James Irvin and a lot more monsters in that gym.
Tanaka vs. Vollotton is going to be the most technical fight of the fight card because a submission wizard from Japan battles a very talented wrestler who has a very good submission defense.
