URCC 24: Uprising Results/Video – Kelly makes a triumphant return, Subora retains strap

The main event super fight wasn’t so super after all.

Eric Kelly needed just three minutes or so to snap on an Armbar, and submit Xian Sports University’s Jianbo Lu.

URCC 24: Uprising took place last weekend, November 30, at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, Philippines.

Kelly, 31, landed a takedown early on and transitioned to full mount. The former ONE FC contender then locked on an Armbar which promptly forced a tap from Lu.

This was Kelly’s first fight since his gut-wrenching defeat at the hands of Honorio Banario, in a title match-up that was held early on in the year.

Elsewhere, in the co-main event, Igor Subora knocked out Marcus Valda to retain his Light-Heavyweight strap, while Reydon Romero secured the URCC Featherweight title in his re-match against Ricardo Sapno.
