HEART-POUNDING mixed martial arts action returns to Casino Filipino as the seventh installment of the highly-fancied Battle Extreme Tournament of Superstars (BETS) series sets the stage ablaze at CF Manila Bay in Ermita, Manila tonight.
The nine-fight card, organized by CF in partnership with the Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) through Live Artists Production, is bannered by battle-tested warriors who vow to give fight fans more exciting ring combats that will once again bring them to the edge of their seats.
Serving as the main event is the flyweight division encounter between George Mascardo of Dipolog Top Team and Ruel Catalan of Catalan Fighting System, while the co-main event will pit the unbeaten Mark Gregory Valerio of One Revolt MMA opposite Mario “Mars” Sismundo of Team Boss MMA in the featherweight tiff.
Mascardo carries a win-loss record of 7-2 and looks to score the eighth victory of his professional career over Catalan (6-1), who is raring to bounce back from a loss to Marcio Cesar in the RFC Way of the Dragon 01 last February.
Valerio, meanwhile, boasts of an unblemished 6-0 slate and heads into the match a slight favorite against Sismundo, who has six wins and three losses to show in nine professional skirmishes.
“CF BETS continues to gain popularity among fight fans, and the secret lies in the lineup of ring gladiators that we feature in every series. The seventh staging of this much-awaited combat event promises to give MMA followers extreme excitement anew,” said Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) Assistant VP for Entertainment Bong Quintana.
