    Baluyot of Parañaque City, displayed both great striking and wrestling skills to score a unanimous decision over Sevilla in their flyweight match as he improved to a 2-0 record.

    “I learned how to face and conquer myself first before and during the fight. Good thing I learned how to execute well my striking and wrestling skills,” said the 30-year-old Baluyot, who worked for one month in a training camp in Baguio City to enhance his striking skills.

    Sevilla, who was bloodied after the fight, dropped to a 6-4 record.

    Jones, meanwhile, put an end to Arvin Chan’s 12-year MMA career by crushing him with a kimura submission lock in three minutes and 45 seconds of the second round of their welterweight clash witnessed by URCC President Alvin Aguilar and URCC vice president Aleks Sofronov.


    Chan (8-10) displayed his striking skills by trying to land solid blows, but the 26-year-old Costa Rican fighter nicknamed "The Hitman" overpowered him with powerful takedowns, before he caught him with a deadly submission on the way to maintaining an unbeaten record at 2-0.

    “This victory is for everybody, for those people who are always being put down. So always believe in yourselves, fight for what’s right, and not only for the LGBTQ+ community, but I dedicated this fight to the other individuals as well,” Jones said.

    The fight cards monitored by the Games and Amusement Board (GAB) led by Chairman Atty. Richard Clarin, were supported by the most trusted online casino in the Philippines Nuebe Gaming and Vietnamese Highlands Coffee.
