The UFC officially announced the fight card for their very first event in Manila, Philippines, and both of Guam’s UFC fighters have made the card! Jon “Super Saiyan” Tuck and Jon “The Heat” Delos Reyes will strap up to take on opponents in the card highlighted by the main event of Frankie Edgar vs. Urijah Faber.

Jon Tuck vs. Tae-Hyun Bang

Fighting out of Korean Top Team, Bang is a seasoned veteran with 17 wins and 8 losses. He stands 5’9″ and is just a year older than Tuck. Bang is coming off a win in UFC 174 late June, with a KO win over Kajan Johnson.

Tuck’s only losses have come in the UFC, his most recent being a loss to Kevin Lee last September. Tuck will be fighting in familiar territory after fighting in previous PXC events in the Philippines. Tuck has 8 wins and 2 losses.

“Joe Silva matched us up because he knew our styles would make an exciting fight,” said Tuck.
