Actors Baron Geisler and Kiko Matos are not scheduled to fight until their June 25 Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) cage match but it seems like Matos has already scored points in the cheap shot department.
In a minute-long video posted by MMA Philippines, the actors are seen facing each other seemingly trying to make peace. The URCC invited the rivals to settle their differences inside their ring but required them to squash their beef prior to the fight.
Geisler went ahead and hugged Matos while the latter returned the gesture by tapping Geisler’s back.
But things suddenly heated up, with Matos pushing Geisler away before kicking him in the stomach.
Geisler seem unfazed by the cheap shot and even taunted Matos. “Hindi ako nasaktan doon ah. Yun lang ba yun?" he asked. "Ayan na naman oh, buti na lang punong-puno ng gulay yung sistema ko.”
The two got into a bar brawl last May where Matos sucker-punched Geisler, who was extending his hand in reconciliation.
Their URCC fight will be a two-round exhibition match and has been scheduled on June 25 at Valkyrie at the Palace in Uptown BGC in Taguig City.
