Guam - Fight fans can look forward to the island's first 135-pound lightweight tournament next Saturday at the UOG Field House. The winner of the tournament will be crowned Guam's 135-pound Champion. Team Counter Shots Josh Alvarez is looking to take on Spike 22's Kyle Aguon in one of the matchups.

Alvarez is coming off a 3 round decision lost to Justin The Shocker Cruz in PXC 19 who is also in the lightweight tournament. Josh's opponent, Kyle Aguon is no stranger to the MMA game with impressive showings in his last couple fights. Aguon will pose a threat with his height advantage over the much shorter Alvarez but will have to keep his hands up against the smaller striker.

Kyle's last fight was a 3 round war with Guahan Top Teams Kyle "Boom" Reyes. Both fighters have knock out power with good submission skills and will make for a great fight come July 21.
