Roy “The Punisher” Docyogen survived the fierce assault of Jordan “Jungle Boy” Ogo of Saipan early to keep his pinweight crown in the Colt 45-URCC (Universal Reality Combat Championships) XVII held over the weekend at the jampacked A. Venue Events Hall in Makati.
The Lakay Wushu star used a ‘kimura’ tactic to get the back of Ogo before executing a rear naked choke that saw the pride of Saipan’s Team Hagat tap out – a sign of surrender – with 9:26 in the first round.
Aside from retaining his title, the 25-year-old, 5-foot-5 Docyogen also extended his winning streak in the fast rising mixed martial event (MMA) to eight.
Another big winner in the event presented by Colt 45 and sponsored by Tribal Gear, Alaxan FR, Solar TV, Solar Sports, 99.5 RT, NU 107, Rogue Magazine, Pinoy Exchange, VRP Medical Center, Chris Sports, Yoshinoya, and SEAIR, was first-timer Froilan Sarena of Submission Sports Philippines who beat Iranian Razi Jabbari.
Sarenas used his brute strength to win via an armbar in 5:50 in the first round of their welterweight showdown.
Other victors in the 10-bout affair were lightweight Honorio Banario, pinweight Norel Norada, bantamweight Jessie Rafols, bantam Reysaldo Transmonte, featherweight Carl Sabeniano, heavyweight Igor Subora of Ukraine, featherweight Eric Kelly and pinweight Regie Amarante.
Sabeniano posted the quickest win in the event dubbed as “Havoc” as he knocked down Jerson Estoro with a vicious spinning left arm in just 18 seconds.
