URCC Welterweight, Arvin “Asintado” Chan from The Den MNL/Ronin BJJ is set to return inside the URCC cage. Asintado recently had a dominant first round win over newly-signed URCC fighter, Paulo Almendrala of Wolves Lair MMA last URCC Fight Night: Battle Extreme Tournament of Superstars III, who took the fight on short notice.
Asintado did not waste any time as he went straight for the kill during the beginning of first round as he unleashed his legkicks early and went straight for the takedown.
It was clear that the experienced veteran, Asintado knows that his wrestling skills will help him get the win against a veteran striker.
He then established a full mount against Almendrala and did some ground and pound that got him the victory.
Despite the animosity between the two during the weigh-ins and the press-conference, Asintado respects his opponent, for taking the fight on short notice and not pulling out of the bout.
With this win on the record books, Asintado is now slated to co-headline an upcoming URCC fight night event this December according to URCC matchmaker, Ron Catunao. Who do you want him to face next?!?
