It's been a year since my latest blog about MMA here in my country and with the premier Philippine MMA team I've been a student and training in, TEAM LAKAY.
With my post graduate studies and field work, I've been not that active with ModdB. Anyways, I got some time off from my studies and field work and now to my fellow ModdB enthusiasts in MMA, I just want to repost a delayed livestream link of the current Pacific Extreme Combat event, PXC 41.
In this event, four of the fighters in Team Lakay will be competing. Coach Troy Bantiag, Coach Cris Pitpitunge, Coach Harold Banario and first Filipino Female fighter in PXC, Coach Gina Iniong. Coach Troy and Cris lost but Coach Harold and Coach Gina clinch the win for their respective fights.
Just click on the link ---> PXC 41
On another note:
My ModdB friends, I'm sorry for not being able to help you guys with your mods. As on Monday, I have volunteered myself with an NGO and the Philippine Red Cross to help my fellow countrymen who were the victims of the strongest recorded Super Typhoon that made a landfall in history. Typhoon Hainan is a lot more stronger, than even Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy that devastated the US the past years.
Super Typhoon Hainan made its destructive path in the Central Visayas bringing in nearly tsunamic 15 to 30ft (in some areas) storm surges that flooded its destructive waves from the seas onto numerous coastal towns and villages. The typhoon left a destructive swath with hundreds killed - shocking and appalling are the images of dead casualties, human adults and children stacked up like debris and cordwood at the sides of the streets in cities and villages that were decimated by the typhoon's onslaught. Whole families gone, numerous orphans and missing family members. The death toll will continue to rise every hour for several days as bodies will be discovered. A lot of missing persons are currently being reported specially in coastal towns where those waves from the storm surge took a lot of lives out to sea. The typhoon also affected the Bohol region where it just recently suffered from a 7.2 magnitude earthquake last month. And so I have registered to volunteer myself to help my fellow countrymen for at least 2 weeks. I do hope at least with this gesture, I can lend a hand and help someone in need at their most extreme crisis in their lives.
