FILIPINO-American Mark Streigl stakes his unbeaten record when he takes on Guam’s Robert “The Real Deal” Wusstig in a featherweight match in Pacific Xtreme Combat 33 on September 1 at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.
The 24-year-old Streigl scored eight of his 10 wins via stoppage, the most recent a first-round submission by rear naked choke on newcomer Alcer Lozada (1-2 win-loss) in the Universal Reality Combat Championship 21 – Warpath in April.
Streigl, who resides and trains in Baguio City and has fought in various MMA events in Japan, Hong Kong Macau and the Philippines, has signed a multi-fight deal with PXC and makes his debut against Wusstig.
The Guamanian, who debuted with a win in PXC 14 in 2008, has won his last two fights but lost the previous five. He most recently beat Thaddeus Malbreaux (1-2) in PXC 30 in March and before that won a split decision over erstwhile unbeaten Shane Alvarez (7-1) in Trench Warz 15.
“Mark will definitely have a big test against Robert, who is considered one of the best fighters in Asia. Mark will be highlighted as one of our top Filipino talents putting his undefeated record on the line on nationwide television,” said PXC chief executive officer EJ Calvo.
The PXC 33 main event is the lightweight title fight between Guam’s Jon Tuck (6-0) and Harris Sarmiento (34-23) of the US.
