In an exclusive over at MMA in Asia Filipino journalist Zike Sugawara revealed the full fight card for PXC 39 which sees the Guam based promotion return to the Araneta Coliseum in Manila for the second time on September 24th.
As previously announced elsewhere the show will be headlined by a featherweight title tilt featuring Fil-Am fighter Mark Striegl (12-0) and Korean Jang Yong Kim (6-5-1) who will be doing battle for the belt vacated by Joe Taimanglo.
Filipinos on the card include lightweight Isaiah Ordiz (2-1), bantamweight Troy Bantiag (5-2), flyweights Ernesto Montilla Jr (2-1) and Roldan Sangcha-an (3-0) and featherweight Rolando Gabriel Dy Navarette (3-2)
