Meanwhile, for the flyweight title match, defending champion and Pinoy fighter Mark “Mugen” Striegl will go up against Japan’s Shunichi Shimizu. The fight for the welterweight title (the competition’s main event) will have Filipino champion John Adajar face off against Miguel Mosquera, another local fighter in the lineup.
