Undefeated Japanese PXC bantamweight champion Michinori Tanaka has successfully defended his title last night against Guam’s Kyle Aguon by way of Unanimous Decision win at PXC 40.

UOG Field House in Guam was packed last night as PXC 40 showcased a very explosive night of fights.

The PXC World Bantamweight Champion, Tanaka, once again, showed why he is the champion by displaying his much-improved MMA game against Aguon.

Both fighters were very cautious in the first couple of minutes of the opening round. Both warriors are waiting for each other to make a mistake. Few exchanges were initiated by both men in the later minutes, but it was the Japanese fighter who showed his speed against the Guamanian fighter. Tanaka scored an incredible throw and controlled Aguon until the end of the first round.

Tanaka also exhibited his much-improved standu-up game last night. He threw several lethal high kicks to distract Aguon. His movement is fantastic. He always circles to the right to avoid Aguon’s power. The champion’s takedown has been his bread and butter ever since and he used it again last night to negate Aguon’s striking.

Aguon scored a couple of takedowns but every time he takes the champion down, Tanaka always gets up quicklt to his knees.

The crowd at UOG Fieldhouse went nuts when Aguon attempted an armbar in the third round. But the champion was so calm and relaxed during the situation and managed to get out of it.

There were a certain moments in third round that Aguon was very aggressive stalking Tanaka with punches and kicks, but then again, Tanaka’s movement and speed has been the biggest factor of the night.  Tanaka was able to get out of Aguon’s range that gave a lof problem to the Guamanian fighter.

Tanaka’s power is undeniable. He stopped a lot of Aguon’s takedown attempts. We all know that Aguon is a very strong wrestler, but he has no answers for Tanaka’s superb grappling abilities.

Tanaka keeps his pace and looks fresher against Aguon heading to the fourth round. Tanaka’s dominance is unbelievable; he almost takes Aguon down at will, but props to Aguon for hanging in there. The champ’s takedown attempts are relentless; he is a bully inside the Terror Dome that’s for sure.

Aguon had his moment in the last minute of the fourth round, taking the champion down and puts himself inside of Tanaka’s half guard and later on to full mount. But the champion was so quick and very explosive that he was able to reverse the situation in the end of the round.

The challenger was aware tha he was behind on points. That is why he was the aggressor in the final round, stalking the champion, throwing deadly body kicks and punches. But just when Aguon got his momentum going, the champion shoots in for a single leg takedown and once again, took Aguon down and stopped his momentum. The fight ended with Tanaka defending Aguon’s takedown attempt. It was a very disappointing round for the challenger.

Tanaka won by way of a Unanimous Victory and successfully defended his title for the first time. Though he got the win, the Japanese champion admitted during the post fight interview that he is not happy with his performance and will train harder to get better.

Tanaka improves his record to 9-0, while Aguon dropped to 6-4.

Meanwhile, the tallest featherweight fighter in the world made a successful PXC debut last night as Will “The Kill” Chope defeated a much experienced fighter in Takumi Nakayama in the third round via 3rd TKO stoppage.

The Kill wasted no time and came out from his corner guns blazing, using his height and reach advantage over Nakayama, he connected several punches to maintain his range against the Japanese veteran. In the later minutes of the first round, Nakayama took Chope down and caught him in a deep D’arce choke, but Chope escaped.

Nakayama came out aggressive in the second round, tagging Chope with several hard punches. But the American kept his composure and recovered.

In the third round, Chope finally finished his opponent and got him hurt with his ground and pound. Chope stopped Nakayama in the third made his PXC debut a successful and very impressive one.

Kyle “Boom” Reyes scored a mind-boggling flying knee KO against Taekyun Kim of South Korea in the very first round. Reyes redeemed himself from his UD loss in the hands of Rolando Dy at PXC 39 in the Philippines.

MICHINORI TANAKA TO FACE KYLE AGUON FOR BANTAMWEIGHT WORLD TITLE

PXC 40

(Press Release)

Recently crowned PXC Bantamweight Champ, Michinori Tanaka of Japan, will defend his Title for the first time in hostile territory against rising MMA star from Guam, Kyle Aguon, on October 25th at the University of Guam Field House in Mangilao, Guam.

Aguon earned the right to challenge Tanaka for the belt by defeating Hawaii’s Russel Doane at PXC-38 in August in a tight decision, bringing Aguon’s current winning streak to 4 straight. At 24 years old, Aguon has used his sizable frame, reach and strong grappling to establish himself as the top contender at 135 pounds.

Michinori Tanaka, on the other hand, does not intend on giving up his belt t yet. At 23 years old, Tanaka is one of Japan’s top young fighters with an undefeated record of 8 – 0, including impressive performances against Russel Doane, Caleb Vallaton, and former Champ, Crisanto Pitpitunge.

Tanaka (5’5”, 135 lbs) captured the Titel at PXC-36 with a unanimous decision win over former Filipino champion Crisanto Pitpitunge in Manila. This will be his second fight on Guam in his pro career, his first five victories coming in Japan’s Shooto fighting organization.

Tanaka versus Aguon is expected to showcase world-class grappling and submissions attempts, although both fighters throw heavy punches and possess knock-out abilities. This main-event will also be the first PXC title fight in Guam in over a year.

PXC-40 will take place on Friday, October 25th, and will feature a stacked fight card, with professional MMA matchups showcasing some of the best fighters from Guam, Hawaii, California and Japan.

PXC 37 Results – Tanaka Is The New PXC World Bantamweight Champion, Jang Yong Kim Advances To The Tournament Finals

tanaka 2

Venue: PXC 37

Date:18 May 2013

Location: Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig, Phililppines

Pacific X-treme Combat (PXC) wrapped up its 37th installment on Saturday (May 18, 2012), at the Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig City, Philippines.

Crisanto Pitpitunge failed to defend his title as he was defeated by the skillful Japanese fighter, Michinori Tanaka via Unanimous Decision.

It was a very entertaining fight between Tanaka and Pitpitunge as two of the best bantamweights in Asia gave all they got to entertain the fans.

In the first round, everyone thought that Crisanto will make Tanaka tap as he caught the Japanese submission specialist into a tight rear-naked choke. But Tanaka looked very relaxed while Pitpitunge’s squeezing his neck – that’s how high level grappler Tanaka is. Since that RNC attempt by the former champ, it was all about Tanaka’s wrestling.

Tanaka and his team were very emotional after the fight as they all knew that their labor paid off as they’ll bring the PXC bantamweight belt back home in Japan. In this sport of MMA, each bout can only have one winner and one loser. Getting a victory in this tough sport is no doubt, one of the best thing that has happened to a fighter while losing can put a fighter down emotionally and mentally.

We know the fact that all fighters are looking for that win; we must also know that some captures it, others don’t.

After enduring some rigorous training and exhausting weight cut, Korean Top Team’s Jang Yong Kim is back to his winning ways as he submitted an up and coming fighter from Hawaii, Nate Thorell in the opening round via kimura.

While Kim is celebrating his win against Thorell, his team mate, Hong Seung Chan was at the dugout thinking what went wrong in his game plan as he was defeated by Reno Remigio of Hawaii in the third round by way of TKO (punches). Remigio’s Muay Thai played a big factor on his victory over the South Korean fighter. He is connecting solid knees and razor sharp elbows whenever they are in the clinch position. Also, the take down defense of Remegio helped him get the W for his PXC debut. Though stepping up late to fight Chan, the part Hawaiian-Filipino Remegio showcased his superb striking abilities and left a message to the rest of the lightweight division that he is here to stay.

Fight Works MMA went 2-0 as Rolando Gabriel Dy submits Arex Montalban by way of armbar and Ernesto Montilla Jr. shocked the crowd by taking out Team Lakay’s Jerome Wanawan in the second round. The Laguna-based fight team is going to celebrate its first anniversary on May 27th and getting big wins last night were an early gift for the whole team who struggled to get some sponsorship prior to PXC 37. Someone really needs to support this team financially because the talents over there are exceptional. I predict that FWMMA will be one of the Philippines’ best MMA team in a couple of years.

While Fight Works MMA celebrates their huge victories last night, Team Lakay arguably had their toughest outing so far as they went 0-3. Wanawan faced a much improved Ernesto Montilla last night. Montilla showed speed, power and his excellent endurance. Montilla handed Jerome his second straight losses. Troy Bantiag faced Trevin Jones in a match where most of the fight fans knew he will dominate. But Jones fought smart and took the fight to where Bantiag has his weakness – on the ground. Jones defeated Bantiag via UD. Team Lakay vows to bounce back strong on August 31st as 5 of its best fighters will fight in ONE FC 9 ‘Rise to Power’.

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

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.

Filipino MMA Champ Crisanto “The Slugger” Pitpitunge To Defend His Belt Against Japanese Submission Specialist Michinori Tanaka At PXC 37

pxc 37

Two of the most dominant bantamweights in the region today collides in May 18th as Philippines’ pride and the reigning  PXC bantamweight king, Crisanto “The Slugger” Pitpitunge (4-1) makes his first-ever title defense against the surging undefeated Japanese fighter, Michinori Tanaka (7-0) at PXC 37 scheduled on May 18th at the Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig City, Philippines.

It has been almost a year since we last saw Pitpitunge in action – that was when he put Justin Cruz to sleep in a single blow straight to his chin during their bantamweight championship fight in July of 2012. After capturing the bantamweight belt, Pitpitunge focused himself in a six-month training as a police officer.

We spoke with Pitpitunge during PXC 35 in Manila last February 16 and asked him on how excited is he to get back inside the cage; he just simply said,

“I’m excited to fight and defend my belt for the first time. Even if I’m outside the cage doing my training as a police officer, I always make sure that I’m fit and my cardio is always at its best. I always run in the morning and in the afternoon inside our barracks.”

Pitpitunge is known for his outstanding endurance and physical toughness. He has a deadly striking game and once he’s on top of you, it is the beginning of the end for you.

On the flip side, Michinori Tanaka is coming off a very convincing win over Team Reign’s Caleb Vollatton by way of 2nd round submission (triangle choke) in PXC 36 on March 8, 2013. Tanaka is no doubt, one of the brightest prospects in Japan today and he is going to be a superstar in years to come. He trains at Reversal Gym Yokohama Ground Slam alongside Shinichi Kojima, Shuichiro Katsumura and Chuji Kato.

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. He will be making the most important fight of his career against a very tough opponent in Crisanto Pitpitunge.

PXC CEO and Promoter, EJ Calvo, said, “In my opinion, Crisanto is actually the underdog in his title defense against Michinori Tanaka. He hasn’t been able to fight for about 1 year, so this is his chance to remind fans how tough he really is. I wouldn’t underestimate him after what he did to Justin Cruz.”

Tanaka is one of Japan’s top rising stars of the sport and has yet to be beaten. We have so many elite bantamweights in PXC. iI will be hard for any champ in this division to hold on to the belt for too long..but anything can happen in MMA if you make a mistake against elite PXC fighters!” Calvo Added.

Will Tanaka keep his streak alive or will Pitpitunge add another highlight KO win over his Japanese foe?

Aside from a confirmed bout between Singapore’s Syafiq “The Slasher” Samad and Philippines’ Glen Ranillo,  there are also rumors that PXC 37 will also feature a four-man featherweight tournament and a flyweight championship fight between the reigning champ Ale “The Young Gun” Cali and the super tough Hawaiian fighter Louis “Da Last Samurai” Smolka.

PXC 37 will be broadcast nation-wide on AKTV via IBC-13 to millions of viewers in the Philippines, and will stream online via PXC’s Facebook page. Visit www.pxc.com.ph or http://www.facebook.com/pxcmma for news and information.

PXC 36 Results: Aguon drawn the score with Jones, Josh Calvo stops Vistante, Tanaka stays unbeaten

pxc 36 poster

It was a sweet victory for Kyle Aguon as he avenged his 2008 loss by defeating Trevin Jones via unanimous decision last night in PXC 36 at UOG Field House, Guam.

With that win over Jones, Aguon might just put himself as the no. 1 contender for Crisanto Pitpitunge’s title.

Although the PXC officials are still on the process of choosing who will be Crisanto’s next foe, we will likely see either Aguon or Michinori Tanaka challenge Pitpitunge in May at PXC 37 in the Philippines as Tanaka, once again, impressed the PXC fans when he defeated top prospect from Reign Training Center, Caleb Vallotton via second round submission (triangle choke).

Also, Josh Calvo lived up to the hype as he demolished Johnavan Vistante by way of first round submission (RNC). With that impressive win over Vistante, Calvo just sent out a message to all fighters in his division that he is a force to be reckoned with. I would love to see him fight Zebaztian Kadestam or Bellator fighter, Ryan Ford, who has been showing his interest on fighting inside the PXC cage and said that he wants to make his debut in May at PXC 37 against Ryan Bigler.

Here’s the complete results for PXC 36:

Kyle Aguon def. Trevin Jones via UD

Kailin Curran def. Kaiyana Rain via UD

Josh Calvo def. Jhonavan Vistante via 1st rd. Submission (RNC)

Roque Martinez def. Mylo Lassiter via UD

Renewed MMA Rivalry In PXC 36

pxc 36 poster

Trevin Jones has been one of Guam’s top Bantamweights for the last 2 years, with only 1 loss by decision to PXC’s former Champ, Justin Cruz, over that span. In PXC-36’s Main Event, Jones will be tested by another up and coming Spike-22 fighter, Kyle Aguon, who many feel has the potential to become Guam’s top contender for the Bantamweight Title. Jones versus Aguon shouldn’t dissapoint, as both fighters are well-rounded and have what it takes to go the distance.

The Pacific Xtreme Combat-36 fight card is stacked with fighters from around the world gathering under one roof to throw down. Guam has been hosting the best Mixed Martial Arts events in the region for over a decade, and for a Main Event bout, PXC didn’t have to go scouring the world to find two fighters who will put on an exciting show. PXC found what they were looking for at the island’s 2 top MMA gyms, as Spike-22’s Kyle Agoun takes on Trevin Jones from Underworld X-treme in the Rivalry Match. Spike 22 and Underworld Xtreme have the reputations of producing some of the best fighters in the region and have had a strong rivalry for years. Jones and Agoun are training partners with former rivals, Joe Taimanglo and Alex Castro, who put on great fights for PXC fans throughout their careers. Any time these two gyms match up in the PXC cage, it is sure to bring fireworks.

Fighting out of Spike 22, Kyle Agoun is mentored by Melchor Manibusan and has a professional record of 4-3. Manibusan is one of Guam’s pioneering mixed martial artists and now veteran coach. Wrestling being the strongest part of his game Kyle is sure to display some great takedowns. According to Agoun, “I took off from work for my last hard weeks of training to focus more on the fight. Training two a days six times a week. Strength and conditioning mornings and MMA in the evenings. As a freestyle striker and fighter, I am focusing on every aspect of the game sharpening up all my skills for the fight.” Although Agoun has not changed any aspects of his fighting in preparation for the fight he also recently took his training camp to Washington to get a feel of different sparring partners. Aguon trained with new PXC fighter and cousin Josh Calvo, training at combat sport and fitness with Jeff Houghland and Foster in Brazillian Jui Jitsu.

This will be Agoun’s second time challenging Jones. The last time Agoun faced off against Jones the fight did not go in his favor and Jones took home the win. Wanting to redeem his loss Agoun says, “I feel motivated and I get to get to show the fans what was suppose to happen the first time.” Already having a feel of his opponent Agoun says, “Trevin is tough but I feel that he lacks a lot of technique, and toughness can only take too far.” Eager for the win, Kyle has these last word for his opponent, “This fight is not going to end up in the judges hands because I am going to be looking for the finish.”

Underworld Xtreme’s Trevin Jones has trained under veteran PXC fighters Alex Castro and Chris Brub, and alongside Featherweight Kyle Reyes. Jones has a professional record of 4-1, his only loss was to Justin “Shocker” Cruz in what he says was a win he was cheated out of. Jones says, “At first I wasn’t going to take the fight my team mate was suppose to fight him but he got hurt. I think Kyle is pretty tough, so I said why not fight him again and get some payback against Spike-22.” Jones wants to make sure there is no shadow of a doubt that his win against Agoun in their last bout was the right decision. Jones has been working hard as well, training six days a week and focusing on all aspects of his training, switching it up between sparring, vale tudo, grappling, muy thai, and judo. Jones says, “ I still have a good amount of weight to cut but my gas is good and I’ll be ready. I am feeling really good and strong.” Jones has been studying his previous match up against Agoun very closely. Jones says of this fight, “ I am planning on taking it to the ground. We will stand up at first, but I want to see how he handles me while on his back.”

The winner of this bout will determine who is Guam’s top contender for the PXC Bantamweight title shot, featuring two of Guam’s best young up and coming fighters. Both fighters have dreams of holding the title. According to Agoun, “A shot at the title is great it would be awesome to be the PXC 135 champ. A win over Trevin would be a big step in that direction for me.” Trevin Jones added, “I am gunning for the title, and Kyle is in my way.”

PXC CEO and Promoter, Ej Calvo said, “As PXC’s first show of the year in Guam, we didn’t hold back by bringing in high quality fighters to battle in front of thousands of loyal PXC fans. We will also be upgrading production of the show and expect to sell out. It should be a historic night at the UOG Fieldhouse!

This card features the best up and coming MMA fighters in Guam, Saipan, Hawaii, Japan and Korea. Look out for new PXC fighters making their debut, including Josh Calvo and Toby Misech from BJ Penn’s camp in Hawaii.” Said Eli Monge, PXC VP & Head-Matchmaker.
