The Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) is now getting better and bigger that some of its stars are now being invited to showcase their talents in more established mixed martial arts (MMA) leagues abroad.

According to URCC founder and president Alvin Aguilar, two of its stars – Filipino Eduard Folayang and Chinese Zhang Tie Quan – are consistently doing well in different leagues with Folayang winning two of his last two fights in Martial Sports in Singapore.

Zhang, on the other hand, has recently signed up with US promotion WEC – a sister promotion of the UFC – which Aguilar said was a proof that URCC is now being recognized almost everywhere.

“It’s a welcome development and that says a lot to our organization and to the players we discovered and helped nurture,” said Aguilar, who thanked Colt 45 for its unwavering support to all their projects.

On Saturday, URCC and Colt 45 will again join hands in staging the URCC XVIII dubbed as “Relentless” at A. Venue Events Hall in Makati City.

The 10-bout event, also co-presented by Tribal Gear, will be highlighted by two title bouts involving Eric Kelly of Yaw Yan Ardigma who stakes his four-game winning streak against Nate Flores of Predator Combat/Konflikt in featherweight clash and BRAWL’s Jerry Legaspi who battles Froilan Sarenas of Submission Sport in the middleweight division.

Tickets for the event are now available at TicketWorld (891-9999). The first fight starts at 8 p.m.
