ORIGINAL POST: May 31
The recent altercation between veteran actor Baron Geisler and indie actor Kiko Matos has caught the attention of the Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC), leading the mixed martial arts league to give an open invitation to the two to settle the score in an actual match.
URCC Founder and President Alvin Aguilar issued the invitation on Facebook and during the recent Fightnight press conference held at Café Naya at The Palace.
“Kiko and Baron… In the URCC, we make sure that all street fights get settled inside the URCC cage. So, guys, we are offering you both a chance to finally settle the score inside the URCC cage and not in the streets. Are you guys up to the challenge?”
There have been coaches who have shown their interest in training the two for a fair and legit fight, especially after Baron had initially said that he wanted to meet Kiko once more “mata sa mata”.
URCC has confirmed that Kiko is willing to answer Baron's challenge inside the cage.
Baron, on the other hand, posted a vague message on his fan page.
