URCC B.E.T.S. Will take place at the Waterfront Manila Pavilion Casino in Manila, Philippines at 7:00pm PST on Saturday, January 28. The event will be broadcast live on ABS-CBN to all of the Philippines. The Main Event will be a smasher between Light Heavyweights Jesdan dela Pena and Caloy Baduria.
Rahul Raju (2-0, Juggernaut Fight Club) is an experienced amateur MMA competitor who has gone undefeated in his first two fights as a pro. With a kung fu background, then trained under top boxing coach Arvind Lalwani, it will be very interesting to see how this young fighter challenges for the finals.
Andrew Benibe (6-8, Maic’s Gym/DEFTAC) is a former URCC Champion and is in the URCC Hall of Fame. One of the most well-rounded athletes in the promotion, he draws huge crowds and support for his performance. With his long tenure in the URCC – since 2006 – and with the massive DEFTAC team, he’s a strong candidate for the finals.
Reydon “Red” Romero (10-6, DEFTAC) is a URCC staple fighter since 2010. He’s fought across many divisions, including challenging for the bantamweight title, and winning the featherweight belt. Romero throws everything he has at his opponents from the opening bell, so it could be a short night of fights.
Patrick Manicad (1-4, Catalan Fighting System) hails from one of the most exciting striking camps in Southeast Asia, under Rene Catalan. While Manicad has started out fighting some very tough opponents like URCC champ Will Chope and Zebaztian Kadestam, his entrance in the Trials is no doubt a huge opportunity in his fighting career.
Romero versus Manicad and Raju versus Benibe are expected to be the sixth and seventh in the line up, with the winners’ finals match scheduled before the main event.
