Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) President Alvin Aguilar said that it would set a good example if actors Baron Geisler and Kiko Matos would settle their differences inside a mixed martial arts (MMA) cage in the latest edition of the URCC on June 25 at Valkryie in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
In an online video that went viral over the weekend, Geisler and Matos was seen engaged in a brief fistfight in a bar in Quezon City.
On Monday, during a URCC news conference, Aguilar invited the two to settle their grudge through an MMA match.
“Yes, [it’s confirmed]. But we have to remember it is an exhibition bout and we are doing this for both parties to settle their differences and to show them that if you want to do fighting, do it inside the cage and set a good example for everybody,” said Aguilar on Wednesday.
The Geisler-Matos bout will be a one round exhibition match lasting five minutes maximum. A modified pro-am rules will be used according to Aguilar, who is also the president of Wrestling Association of the Philippines.
“We may make them a halftime show instead of putting them for the last fight, since we have a scheduled main event.”
“But we want before and after the bout, they will shake hands. It’s in our power to give a solution and teach them a lesson,” added Aguilar.
URCC has promised to donate the proceeds of the Geisler-Matos bout to a charity.
“Whatever proceeds we get in this fight, we will donate it in the charity.”
“I am thinking of charity which will benefit the bereaved families of the SAF (Special Action Force) 44 but we will make the final decision, yet,” Aguilar added.
The URCC Fight Night will be highlighted by the catchweight match between URCC light heavyweight champion Chris Hofmann of DEFTAC and Arvin Chan of Team Vallega Camp.
“We still have the best Filipino fighters fighting and going against each other. On top of that, we have best up-and-coming fighters who will get to showcase their talents.”
“And we will be teaching everyone that instead fighting in bars, bring it inside the cage and set a good example,” Aguilar concluded.
