MANILA, Philippines – Controversial actor Baron Geisler accepted the invitation from Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) to settle his beef with independent film artist Kiko Matos inside a mixed martial arts (MMA) cage.
Geisler had an altercation with Matos at a local bar in Quezon City, which was captured in a viral video circulating online.
URCC founder Alvin Aguilar made a formal invitation to both men on Monday, May 30 during the press conference of the organization’s upcoming event on June 25.
“In the URCC, we make sure that all street fights get settled inside the URCC cage. So guys we are offering you both a chance to finally settle your score inside the URCC cage and not in the streets,” Aguilar said.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, May 31, the Philippine-based MMA company publicly confirmed that Geisler has responded to their matchmaker and seems interested in pursuing a bout against Matos on URCC’s “Fight Night Card,” which takes place at The Palace Pool Club in Taguig City.
“Baron Geisler just contacted our matchmaker over the phone and says that he wants to settle everything with Kiko Matos inside the cage on URCC Fight Night this coming June 25, 2016 at the Palace Pool Club,” URCC wrote.
With URCC promising to give the fight’s proceeds to charity, Geisler has already begun his training as online footage shows that he is working on his Taekwondo background with brother Donnie, who was a member of Philippine Taekwondo team that represented the country in the 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympic Games.
Meanwhile, Matos has no qualms in facing Geisler under the MMA rules and expressed that he is prepared for a fight anytime of the day.
“Baron Geisler, mahal mo ako? (Do you love me?) Kiss kita. (I will give you a kiss) Sige, kahit saan. (I will fight you anywhere.) Anytime, anywhere, I’ll be there,” Matos quipped in an interview with Aksyon TV. – Rappler.com
