Team China and Team Philippines went to war in a fiercely contested -- and bizarre -- three-vs-three MMA fight at an event hosted by Universal Reality Combat Championship.
URCC 77: Raw Fury was held at the Cove Manila in the Philippines in April 2019, with all six fighters competing at the same time inside the octagon.
JR Rulloda, Florence Eusebio and Joey Lepiten were the three officials in charge of the URCC 77 clash.
Members from Team China and Team Philippines broke up into separate pairings as the two sides went into an all-out brawl in the first round.
It didn’t stop fighters from coming to the aid of one of their teammates, but they had to remain vigilant for any surprise attacks that could happen.
Team Philippines was comprised of Sugar Ray ‘The Mammoth’ Estroso, Brian ‘The Batman’ Paule and Mark ‘The Wolf’ Palomar.
Team China, on the other hand, were made up of Tian Hong Yan, Zhao Sigi and Zhouzhe Yihang.
Unfortunately for Team China, Team Philippines walked away with the ultimate bragging rights over their rivals.
Conan Daily reported the URCC 77 contest ended after 55 seconds in the first round when one of Team China’s members was ‘knocked out.’
According to the publication, Team China were ‘verbally informed’ by officials that they couldn’t continue and Team Philippines were handed an automatic victory.
Powcast Sports also uploaded post-fight reaction on Instagram, which featured members of Team Philippines showing off hilarious dance celebrations.
One YouTube commenter posted: “This s**t’s crazy, never seen anything like this!”
While another added: “This is madness. I will definitely pay to watch this with some big names.”
Someone else wrote: “This reminds me of me and my mates at school doing this exact thing.”
A fourth said: “This could actually be an interesting concept with the UFC, 2 v 2, randomly pick captains by division and they pick who they want to fight alongside with. And battle it out for the best duo.”
And a fifth commented: “This is chaos, they all look confused like they don’t know who to fight.”
