Four championships up for grabs at URCC XXX
The URCC heads to the Big Dome for URCC XXX!

Four championships will be put on the line when the Philippines' premier mixed martial arts promotion heads to the Big Dome for URCC XXX this Saturday, August 12th.

Headlining URCC's 30th major card will be a middleweight championship match between Fil-Swiss reigning titleholder Chris Hofmann and Canadian challenger Robert Sothmann.

Hofmann will be eyeing a second straight middleweight title defense after claiming the belt back in November of 2016. Sothmann on the other hand, looks to make an immediate impact in his URCC debut.

In the co-main event, reigning URCC flyweight king Derrick Easterling defends his title against inaugural Fight Farm Series champion Jiar Castillo.

Half-Pinoy Easterling makes his Philippine debut as he looks to hold on to his title, while Castillo, who's coming off a stoppage win over veteran Alvin Ramirez, is looking to continue his impressive run.

Also, the URCC featherweight title is up for grabs as South Korea's Do Gyeom Lee tries to make it two successful title defenses when he takes on Jeorey Orao.

URCC strawweight champion Fritz Biagtan will also make his long-awaited return to the cage when he meets challenger Solomon Dultra.

Plus, Mark Striegl makes his URCC return against Pinoy MMA pioneer Andrew Benibe, and fan-favorite Caloy Baduria faces off against Mark Palomar.
