Pacific Rim Organized Fighting (PRO FC) launches its tenth event on May 9, 2015 in Taipei, Taiwan with the Welterweight title on the line between Chad Reiner and Takenori Sato.
The Taiwanese promotion has made a history of pitting nation against nation and this card makes use of that in spades for this event. Reiner of the USA and Sato of Japan face off from opposite sides of the world with a wealth of experience between them. Both men have competed for the UFC, both have a decade in the sport, and both have held championship belts in other promotions.
Also from opposite sides of the globe are the co-main event fighters, Korea’s Kim Hoon and Canada’s Moise Rimbon. Heavy hitters with lots of experience will make this a guaranteed KO for someone.
Taiwan’s own stand out Jeff Huang meets the Philippines’ Trestle Tan towards the top of the card. Several more Taiwanese fighters follow, including Zhang Jingxiong, female fighter Jenny Huang, and debuting card openers Neil Huang and Wu Peixui.
A PRO FC card wouldn’t be complete without the inimitable Will Chope, who faces a Mongolian K-1 karateka transitioning to MMA in Narantuya Taivan. Once again Chope will enjoy the reach advantage and a standing headlock of some sort could be the fatal blow.
Other notable fighters on the card include Yasuaki Miura versus Luke Jumeau, Moon Ki-Bum versus undefeated Chris Fishgold, and Kai Kara-France versus Jang Ik-Hwan.
