THE country's best pinweight mix martial artists take another shot at improving his record in the professional arena.

Roy Docyogen tries to further embellish his status when he defends his pinweight crown against Jordan Ogo of Saipan in the Colt 45 URCC XVII dubbed "Havoc" on July 24 at the A. Venue Events Hall in Makati.

One of the rising stars of the famous Team Lakay Wushu, Docyogen will not only defend his crown but is also determined to extend his winning streak in the popular mixed martial arts (MMA) tournament to eight.

Docyogen's bout with Team Hagat T's top bet will be the featured match in the 10-fight event presented by Colt 45 and sponsored by Tribal Gear and Alaxan FR.

Like his popular teammate Eduard Folayang, Docyogen will be banking on his wushu and striking skills in the hope of beating Ogo who is known for his unorthodox style of fighting.

According to Alvin Aguilar, founder and president of the organizing Universal Reality Combat Championship, Ogo's punches usually come from all angles, thus making it hard to predict his pattern.

Tickets are available at Ticketworld and additional information on the fight at www.urccmma.com.

Also worth watching in the tournament backed by Solar TV, Solar Sports, 99.5 RT, NU 107, Rogue Magazine and Pinoy Exchange is the welterweight showdown between Froilan Sarenas of Submission Sports Philippines and Iranian Razi Jabbari.

The other pinweight tussle which pits DEFTAC's Reggis Amarante against D'Elements Gym's Chary dela Cruz is also expected to provide firepower in the event which also has the support of VRP Medical Center, Chris Sports, Yoshinoya, and SEAIR.
