The Pacific Xtreme Combat, PXC for short, is a Mixed Martial Arts promotion that’s based in Guam, USA. Recently, the promotion made an alliance with the Philippines which will help aid in the development of local and regional athletes.

To date, the promotion has showcased over 36 professional events that have attracted thousands to its live showing. Its latest event, titled PXC 32, went down this past Saturday, July 14th, at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

The highlight of the night undoubtedly came from the main event, where a new Bantamweight champion was crowned in Team Lakay’s Crisanto Pitpitunge, as he defeated Justin Cruz by KO in the 1st round.
