Filipino world bantamweight champ will defend his world title as Team Lakay’s Crisanto “The Slugger” Pitpitunge (4-1) battles undefeated Japanese fighter Michinori Tanaka (7-0). Pitpitunge’s last fight shocked a lot of people as he put Justin Cruz to sleep in a single punch to his chin; everyone went nuts as PXC crowned its new bantamweight champion in Pitpitunge.


Tanaka is known for his very tricky ground game. The 22-year-old Japanese fighter is arguably the best grappler in the PXC and one of the youngest fighters to ever compete in the guam-based MMA organization. While the champ, Crisanto Pitpitunge is a KO artist who loves to stand and bang with his opponents – that’s why he is called “The Slugger”. It is another classic striker versus grappler match-up and a highly candidate to get the KO or Submission Of The Night honors.


Another Filipino MMA icon is set to fight in PXC 37 as one of Asian MMA’s best featherweights, Mark “Mugen” Striegl makes his third PXC appearance and looks to stay unbeaten inside the PXC cage as he participates PXC’s four-man featherweight tournament against a Japanese featherweight champion, Yusuke Yachi.

Also, another match-up for the said tourney is set between KTT’s Jang Young Kim and Hawaii’s Nate Thorell. The winner of the said tourney will be crowned as the new PXC featherweight title.

The first-ever Singaporean fighter to be signed by the PXC, Syafiq “The Slasher” Abdul Bin Samad, a very well-rounded fighter, will make his PXC debut against the PXC vet, Glen Ranillo.

There are more exciting match-ups to be announced in the coming days, so stay tuned!
