On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Alvin Aguilar, the founder and president of the URCC.
Founded in 2002 and running events regularly since then, the URCC (Universal Reality Combat Championship) is the first and largest mixed martial arts promotion in the Philippines. The URCC is thus one of the longest-running MMA promotions in the world. The URCC has also formed a mutually exclusive partnership with the ONE Fighting Championship, and is a key part of the ONE Asia Partnership Network.
We spoke with Alvin Aguilar by Skype on Tuesday about the development and growth of the URCC. We discussed the history of the URCC, how it is regulated by the government of the Philippines through the Games and Amusement Board, why the URCC is working so closely with ONE FC and other mixed martial arts organizations throughout Asia, who some of their top fighters are, their plans to run an event in the U.S. in 2012, their busy schedule of events in the Philippines, the effects of the UFC coming to the Philippines, and much more.
