URCC “Reckoning” Set on Mar. 27 by James U. Sy Jr.

The 10-fight card Colt 45 Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) XVI “Reckoning” will be held this coming March 27, 2010 at the A. Venue Events Hall, Makati City.

The main event will have Southeast (SEA) Games Wushu Sanshou champion Eduard Folayang defending the URCC welterweight title against Brazilian Jiu-jitsu exponent and former Korean gymnastics team member Dooje Chung of NEO Fight Korea.

In other bouts, former URCC flyweight champion Richard Lasprilla is making a comeback against newcomer Angelo Estanol of Strike and Shoot. Lasprilla lost his title two years ago to Kevin Belingon of Lakay MMA.

Erwin Focad of Lakay MMA will fight and Hideo Morikawa of Japan. Focad defeated Lando Espinosa of Elorde MMA during URCC XV “Tribal Wars” in November 2009 in Baguio. Meanwhile, Morikawa beat his opponent during his URCC debut at Rogue Magazine’s Black Tie Brawl.

George Lusadan will square off with Joel “Latigo” Taon of Kampilan Yaw Yan. Lusadan is a last minute substitution for Regie “Baby Ama” Amarante of Deftac who pulled out due to a right hand injury. Lusadan defeated Leonard Caliwa of Cavite via rear naked choke during their main event bout at URCC 15.
