MANILA—Jiu-jitsu expert Eros Baluyot survived a grueling bloody bout over fellow black belt Elouie Federic Sevilla while Mariano Jones did what he promised during the Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) 84 Rage on Tuesday night at the Xylo at the Palace in BGC in Taguig. 

Baluyot of ParaƱaque City displayed great striking skills — never expected by the MMA fans — and great wrestling skills to score a unanimous decision win over Sevilla in flyweight match that improved his win-loss record to 2-0. 

“I learned how to face and conquer myself first before and during the fight. Good thing I learned how to execute well my striking and wrestling skills,” the 30-year-old Baluyot said, who worked in a one month training camp in Baguio City to enhance his striking skills. 

Sevilla, also bloodied after the fight, dropped to 6-4 record.

Jones, meanwhile, put an end to Arvin Chan’s 12-year MMA career by crushing him with a kimura submission lock in three minutes and 45 seconds of the second round of their welterweight battle witnessed by URCC President Alvin Aguilar and GM Aleks Sofronov. 

Chan (8-10) showed up his striking skills, trying to land solid blows, but the 26-year-old Costa Rican fighter also known as the “Hitman” overpowered him with powerful takedowns before catching him with the deadly submission to hike his win-loss record to 2-0.

“This victory is for everybody, for those people who are always being put down. So always believe in yourselves, fight for what’s right, and not only to the LGBTQ+ community, but I dedicated this fight to the other individuals as well,” Jones said. 

The fight cards watched closely by the Games and Amusement Board (GAB) Chairman Atty. Richard Clarin are supported by the most trusted online casino in the Philippines Nuebe Gaming and the flavorful Vietnamese Highlands Coffee. 

Marianne Mariano escaped Jomary Torres’ wrestling and grappling skills via split decision triumph in the lone women’s strawweight bout. Mariano got 29-28 and 30-28 scores from the judges, while Torres got 29-28 score from the other judge.
