Trench Tech Purebred Promotions recently released the tentative fight card for Trench Warz 15: Supremacy set for Dec. 16 at the World Resort Saipan’s Royal Taga Ballroom.
So far 11 fights are listed on the card, which features a heavyweight main event between Trench Tech’s Mylo “AlabaMMA” Lassiter (1-1) and Guam’s Manny “The Enforcer” Chong (8-8) of the Thug Cop Fight Club.
Lassiter is looking to bounce back from a recent submission defeat against South Korea’s Doo Hwan Kim (1-0) in PXC 27, while Chong is returning to the cage after over a two-year hiatus.
Chong was knocked out in his last fight back in July 2009 by Saipan’s Kelvin “The Big Hit” Fitial, who is Pacific Xtreme Combat’s current heavyweight champion.
In addition, Trench Tech’s Shane Pikaboo Alvarez (7-0) will put his featherweight title on the line against Guam’s Rob “The Real Deal” Wusstig (2-5) of Countershot MMA.
Alvarez is looking to stretch his unbeaten streak to eight. He was awarded a unanimous decision after five grueling rounds with Marianas Elite’s Derrick “El Peligro” Rangamar in Trech Tech’s Rites of Passage 11: Onra back in September.
Wusstig has not notched a win since July 2008. He lost three fights in 2010, one by submission and two via decision.
Trench Tech’s Fasi “Quickdraw” Jesse (7-4) is expected to be pitted against Marianas Elite’s Maitai “The Charger” Charley at 145 lbs.
Both fighters are hungry, as Charley endured a tough split decision loss to Trench Tech’s “Badd” Brad Palacios (5-3) this past June, while Korean Top Team’s Jang Yong “The Beast” Kim submitted against Jesse last month in PXC 27.
In other matchups, Trench Tech’s Slade “The Rage” Adelbai (8-4-1D) returns to the octagon after taking a year off to take on Guam’s Martin Pablo in a heavyweight bout. Trench Tech’s Martin “Ningbo Slice” Cepeda (3-1) will square off against Counter Shot’s Keith Corpuz in a light heavyweight match.
Zalaka’s Joe “Da Combo” Duenas (1-0) is set to challenge Countershot newcomer Leandro “Leanderlai” Dalalo in a 130-lb bout.
Independent fighter Josh “Chaos” Duenas (1-0) will touch gloves with Countershot/Universal Alliance newcomer Lloyd “Nyquil” Cubacub at 135 lbs.
Trench Tech’s Vince “The Clinch” Masga (1-0) is set to clash with Marianas Elite’s Dennis Cruz at 150 lbs.
Zalaka’s Jake “One Blow” Ilo (0-1) will go toe to toe with Tinian’s Craig “Earthquake” Borja (2-1) of Zeng Zung at 140 lbs.
Zalaka’s John Ilo will be paired against Tinian-Zeng Zung’s Rentz Bhenhit in a K-1 kickboxing match at 145 lbs.
Zalaka’s Zac Reyes will take on Tinian-Zeng Zung’s George “Kamikaze” Manglona in a boxing match at 145 lbs.
Meanwhile, Guam’s Ryan Toves of the Lights Out Gym is on standby at 145 lbs with Tinian-Zeng Zung-duo Pete Cepeda (1-0) and Joe Ray Manglona; Guam’s Jared Melon of Spike 22 and ME’s VJ Pua (1-0) are standing by at 170 lbs; and Trench Tech featherweight Brad Palacios is standing by against Guam’s Josh “The Hedgehog” Alvarez (7-4) of Countershot.
