Guam - A press conference was held at the P.I.C Amphitheater. Some of the fighters on the card were in attendance answering questions from the media. Frank "The Crank" Camacho will be facing Japan fighter Keita Nakamura who is 26-5 as a pro.

Camacho told KUAM Sports, "Keitaro is very well rounded so I can't really have one set game plan, I have to play the whole game with him. I have to work my takedowns, I have to work my striking and I have to work my faints and my submissions. I have to defend his takedowns so it's going to be a very interesting fight and I'm very excited to share the cage with him. The guy has lots of knowledge and experience and I can't wait to leave the cage with all of that."

Hawaii fighter Kailin Curran is back for the 3rd time in PXC. She is 2-0 in the cage and will be facing Korean Top Teams Yoojin Jung who is making her professional debut.

She said, "I feel pretty excited for Friday night. With her making her pro debut, I was once there and I know she's hungry but I'm going to use my experience to my advantage. I have been in the cage for 2 professional fights and I'm pretty confident and excited and focused and I think that I'll be able to stay calm and pick my shots. I'll be me comfortable."

Tobey Misech will be fighting 145-pound champion of the PXC Jang Yong Kim out of Korean Top Team for the title. The Hilo fighter says this is just another fight and looks forward to keeping the fight standing. "I had BJ Penn come inside training camp while he's been training to help me. I've had his older brother JD helping, I've had Ross the Boss, Shane Nelson, Mike Aina, Chad Hall, Troy Mandalones and they all know a lot and helped me with my skills. We have a bunch of good wrestlers at our gym so they have been helping me and I just been drilling. I'm comfortable off my back but I prefer to stand but wherever the fight goes I'll be good to go," he said.
