PXC 46: Two Title Fights Announced for November 15th

As if November 15th couldn’t get any better, already featuring events from the UFC, Bellator, WSOF and Cage Warriors, PXC has announced a return event to the Philippines.  The Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City will play host to PXC 46, featuring a stacked line-up of fights, including two title fights.  The doors open at 7pm and tickets can be purchased at SM Tickets or Ticket World.  The event will be streamed worldwide at 7:30am EDT.

The Vacant Lightweight Title will be up for grabs as Filipino Glen Ranillo will look for his fourth straight win against Japan’s Chuji Kato.  Chuji Kato’s lone loss in MMA came to Mach Dojo disciple Yoshifumi Nakamura (17-5) in Shooto three years ago.  Chuji Kato has won three fights since, including two fights under the PXC banner, most recently at PXC 40 against Tyrone Jones.  Glen Ranillo has fought all six of his MMA fights under the PXC banner, going 4-2 in that stretch, including his most recent win against Reno Remigio at PXC 43.  Both men come from a grappling background, but Ranillo’s counter right hand knockout of Reno could see Glen look to counter wrestle.  Chuji Kato will look to get this fight down early and get on top, where he looks to pass to dominate position and hunt for submissions.

The PXC Flyweight Title will be on the line as Filipino Ernesto Montilla Jr. faces American Alvin Cacdac.  Alvin has been a stable in Southeast Asia MMA in the past four years of his 8 year career.  Alvin carries a 3-1 PXC record into this title fight, most recently defeating Trevin Jones at PXC 40 with a choke off of a defended takedown.  Ernesto Montilla has impressed in his PXC career, holding a 4-2 record with 3 finishes.  Montilla submitted former PXC Flyweight Champion Ale Cali at PXC 43 to earn his shot at the title.  Cacdac will be making the drop back down to Flyweight for this opportunity, a fight that should be exciting from the opening bell.  Both men are aggressive fighters who will look for the finish early, the formula for an exciting fight.

Also on the card, a tentative bout between one of Asia’s very best flyweight/strawweight fighters, Rambaa “M16” Somdet (12-2) and former PXC Bantamweight Champion, Crisanto Pitpitunge (6-3).  Rambaa was scheduled for PXC 43 before he had to pull out of the bout due to an injury.  He will look to return to the cage for the first time in over a year, carrying an eleven fight win streak into the fight.  Pitpitunge ended his brief losing skid at PXC 44, when he was able to take a unanimous nod over Josh Duenas.  Pitpitunge will have a size advantage, but M16 has a significant striking advantage into the fight.

Undefeated PXC fighters, Cortney Casey and Gina Iniong with meet at strawweight.  The 21-year-old Filipino fighter brings a 3-1 record into the fight, including two straight wins in PXC.  Most recently a split decision win over Japanese MMA veteran Mei Yamaguchi at PXC 43.  Cortney Casey is an American with an aggressive grappling style.  Casey is 2-1 in MMA, her only loss in an XFC bout against Pearl Gonzalez.  Casey’s most recent fight was against Tomo Maesawa at PXC 44, a dominant showing in her PXC debut.
