Drex Zamboanga and John Adajar Triumphant At URCC CF BETS 3


Newly crowned URCC Bantamweight Champion Drex Zamboanga is surely living it up right now!

The third excellent night of Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) at Casino Filipino Battle Extreme Tournament of Stars (CF BETS) featured a bout between the two "T-Rex" in the promotion Drex "The T-Rex" Zamboanga and Rex "T-Rex" De Lara as the main event on September 15 at Casino Filipino Pavilion, Manila Bay.

The young and hungry stalwart of Tough Guys International came out on top! The matchup went to be a chess match both on stand up and the ground during the first round. But Zamboanga has momentum going in his favor come second round as he was able to secure big takedowns, gaining top control. Punches were delivered and a heavy elbow inflicted a damage on the former champion's nose deemed serious enough to stop the match giving Drex a TKO victory.

The busiest fighter of Hitman MMA John Adajar indeed showcased his much improving ways to Lee Min Hyeok. Last night was Adajar's third fight for 2017. "The Outlaw is now riding a three fight win streak.

Adajar and Hyeok were exchanging by closing the distance and controlling the actions with their wrestling, leading to wild series of scrambles as two fished for submissions. Adajar came out to maintain the positions in round one. Hyeok was turning his opponent's right leg to red with lowkicks, driving him into the fence. John Adajar's big weapon for me last night was his knees which landed several times to the body and chin of Hyeok. His spinning back fist was pretty amazing, too. On the third round, some fast left and right combinations thrown by these welterweights making the crowd go wild and loud. Adajar made the korean's URCC debut unsuccessful by pulling off the split decision victory.

A minute of the first round was all it took for Arvin Chan to have his opponent verbally tap out. "Asintado" had his six fight losing streak snapped in a big way.  Paulo Mendralla got taken down but never back up.

Pepito Masangkay Jr. unleashed his fury on Oyo Cruz near the end of the third round. He was constantly looking for the finish all two rounds, but Cruz' toughness and defense made it not so easy for "Du30". Masangkay landed a hard shot that put Cruz on the canvas, giving him a TKO victory inside round three.

Michael Fangki mix hard punches and dominant control on the ground after a hard takedown. Arjay Bongala's left eye has some swelling over it after the first round. The fighter from Baguio rocked his opponent multiple times on the feet and managed to get down on the mat. Bongala worked his way back to his feet, but not for long. Fangki outpointed Bongala in a competetive bantamweight fight.

Yours truly was amazed and was not expecting that Ariel Oliveros will finish the fight against Eddie Estrada quickly. "The Lady Boxer" took the perfect opportunity to ground and hit Estrada's face with hammer fists. He made a statement with this first round TKO win in his URCC debut. Same with Jhunnie Kimmayong.

After a dominant first round, he survived  a leglock attempt by EF Sevilla before the bell rang.  He came back with another dominant round in the 3rd to win the fight by way of unanimous decision. He displayed superior grappling and conditioning in this battle.

10 Hottest PBA Courtside Reporters

It's a good thing that these ladies weren't ranked in this video. Not only will it be too difficult, it will also be too unjust.

Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.








At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup.
