    Originally, Vaculik vs. Delos Reyes was announced for this card. But it seems that they've changed their mind because they announced this fight today on UFC.com.

    I'm bummed that the Songcha'an-Rambaa Somdat fight won't happen in PXC, but Songcha'an was already linked to signing with UFC last year, so I hope it works out for him.

    I was really looking forward to seeing Delos Reyes debut at 125. How goods Roldan?

    I'm not sure if Roldan is that good but he's definitely good enough to beat Richie Vas. His last fight (I think?) from PXC is on youtube.

    Here is his fight with Ernesto Montilla

    Here are his fights previous to that one.

    I don't know a lot about him, but I know he trains at Lakay MMA with UFC guys like Mark Eddiva and Dave Galera and all those One FC guys like Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon, and Honorio Banario, but that camp hasn't really been able to prove that they have top talent. PXC seemed pretty hyped on this guy though, they had him in a main event against Rambaa M-16 Somdet who is a big star in Asia.

    4-0 against guys on the Philipines circuit? This guy will find the competition VERY tough going in the UFC....saying that, I said the same about Mark Eddiva before he fought Tuerxun.

    Vaculik is very beatable too, but I'm gonna go for Vas via submission.

    PXC has had a pretty decent go of things in terms of churning out UFC talent. Luis Smolka, Russell Doane, Dustin Kimura, Michinori Tanaka and even Hyun Gyu Lim are all guys who've made stops through there.
