PXC 40 will be headlined by one of the top prospects out of Japan in Michinori Tanaka (8-0) as he looks to defend his bantamweight title and extend his unbeaten streak against Kyle Aguon. The 23-year-old Ground Slam product has received high praise from established Japanese stars such as Shinichi Kojima and Michihiro Omigawa, and he will look to continue his mean streak as he takes on Aguon in his own backyard.
Co-headlining the event is Will Chope (18-5), a URCC champion who will be making his PXC debut against the current featherweight King of Pancrase, Takumi Nakayama (18-13-6). Known as 'The World's Tallest Featherweight', Chope will enter the bout riding an impressive 13-fight win streak, but he will get his toughest test to date when he faces Nakayama, who is a very experienced fighter with black belts in both Judo and BJJ.
A live stream of the contest can be seen below, so join us starting at 10 a.m. ET for some excellent Asian MMA action.
