Tumon, Guam – The hardest part is over for the fighters of PXC 38’s stacked nine-fight card.
All 18 fighters made weight during the weigh-ins Thursday afternoon at Cowboy Ninja Bar & Restaurant in Tumon. With all the hard training and dieting, it’s now time to replenish the body, relax and await fight night Friday night at the UOG Field House.
“That’s how to make weight,” PXC CEO E.J. Calvo said after all 18 fighters stepped on the scale and made it within the allowed weight limits.
A packed crowd was on hand, including Guam UFC fighter Jon Tuck and Big John McCarthy. McCarthy will be refereeing his third PXC event and his first one ever on Guam. “I’m excited to be here,” McCarthy said before giving the fighters their instructions after the weigh-ins. “It’s a beautiful place and I’ve always wanted to come to Guam.
