Rambaa Somdet injured, title fight vs. Roldan Sangcha’an scrapped from PXC 43

Team Lakay’s Roldan Sangcha’an (4-0) will have to unfortunately wait a little while longer to get a crack at the Pacific X-Treme Combat’s vacant Flyweight strap.

PXC officials announced this week via Facebook that Sangcha’an’s opponent, Rambaa Somdet (12-2), was forced to withdraw from PXC 43′s main event title fight after suffering a herniated disk in training. They also confirmed that no replacement will be made and instead, the bout will be scratched from the card altogether.

PXC 43 takes place March 29th at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, Philippines. As with previous events, the main card streams online, free-of-charge, on LIVESTREAM.

Sangcha’an is expected to maintain his number one contender status and fight for the title at a future PXC event.

The Filipino fighter hails from the famed Team Lakay camp in the Philippines. Since entering the MMA landscape in 2012, Sangcha’an has made four pro appearances which have all ended in stoppages. PXC 43 would have been his second appearance under the PXC banner.

Somdet (pictured), 39, is Thailand’s most successful Mixed Martial Arts fighter. His fitnesse in Muay Thai has been well been documented in a career that has spanned over a decade. With an eleven-fight win streak that includes wins over the likes of UFC vet Ulysses Gomez among others, Somdet has competed primarily in Japan, having made appearances in DEEP, Shooto and Grabaka. After a submission triumph over Wushu standout Rabin Catalan in his PXC debut, ‘M16′ was set to make just his second appearance in PXC as well.

With the cancellation, the current PXC 43 line-up includes:

  • Ali Cali vs. Ernesto Montilla Jr.
  • Reno Remegio Jr. vs. Glen Ranillo
  • Gina Iniong vs. Mei Yamaguchi
