Pacific X-treme Combat (PXC)
is proud to support yet another PXC Fighter by releasing him from his
contractual obligations in order for him to sign with The UFC. PXC is one of
the best MMA shows in Asia with regular events in the Philippines and Guam,
while The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championships) is the world's top MMA
PXC Welter-Weight Champion,
Lim Hyun Gyu, also known as "The Ace", hails from South
Korea and trains with Korean Top Team, a respected camp
that has produced some of Asia's best
fighters, including the UFC fighters Chan Sung Jung "The Korean Zombie" and Dongi
"The Ox" Yang.
Gyu has fought his last 4
fights as an exclusive PXC fighter, defeating BJ Penn's student and Hawaiian
standout, Ross Ebanez, Ferrid Kheder of France,
Japan's Takahiro Kawanaka,
and finally, Guam's top Welter-Weight, Ryan
Biggler in PXC-32 on July 28th.
Like many of PXC's top
fighters, Lim Hyun Gyu has been on the UFC radar for the last year or so, and it
is rumored that Gyu may appear on the card for the UFC's upcoming debut in Macau later this year.
PXC has featured UFC talent
including Dan Severn, Jeremy Horn, Roy Nelson, Rich Clemente and Eddie Yagin
throughout its 33 professional events. Current PXC Fighters are certainly
representative of the best MMA talent in Asia, including Guam's Jon Tuck and
Joe Taimanglo, JJ Ambrose from the US, Hawaii's Harris Sarmiento, as well as
Crisanto Pitpitungue, Ale Cali, and Mark Striegl from the Philippines.
