To change it up, try something completely different and attend an MMA match! This January 19, Miguel Mosquera will defend his home turf against Brazilian Afonso “Cego” Celso Jr. at the SMX Convention Center. Mosquera is a purple belt holder in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and a Pan Asia jiu-jitsu tournament gold medalist. He began his MMA career at BRAWL and eventually went on to fight for PXC and URCC.
Aside from the main event, Tiger Black Brawl will feature different fighters from Bacolod, Boracay, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Dumaguete, Iloilo, and Victorias who represent 11 gyms and training centers.
How to get to the SMX Convention Center: Either take a public utility vehicle to Bata or Mandalagan; both ply the main roads of Bacolod. Ask the driver to drop you off in front of SM City Bacolod. If you are in the east area, you can ride any public utility vehicle to Sta. Fe, Homesite or Fortune Town as all will pass by SM.
Tip: Pay attention to the movements of the fighters so you don’t miss out on a single thing.
