Bloody Elbow has confirmed 8 of the 9 bouts set for PXC 41 which includes a flyweight title fight between Ale Cali and Louis Smolka.

Pacific X-Treme Combat is set to host yet another show in the Philippines on November 9, and BloodyElbow.com has confirmed with officials most of the match ups on their line up. PXC 41 will be headlined by a Ale Cali (5-1) who will be looking to defend his flyweight title yet again, but this time against much stiffer competition. "The Young Gun" will be taking on an unbeaten fighter in Louis Smolka, who is coming off an impressive submission win against former URCC champ, Jessie Rafols.

Co-headlining the card is Mark Striegl, who will be taking on New Zealand's Ev Ting in a rematch of their Legend FC 7 bout last year. The Filipino-American star will look to take another victory against Ting as he tries to rebound from the first loss of his career against the newly crowned PXC featherweight champ Jang Yong Kim.

Also on the line up is former bantamweight champ Crisanto Pitpitunge. PXC officials say that the Team Lakay product's opponent hasn't been finalized yet, but he has been earlier linked to a bout against Hawaiian prospect Russel Doane.

Former SRC champ Keita 'K-Taro' Nakamura and Shane Nelson were both supposed to be on the card, but officials have also informed us that the bout between these two UFC veterans has been postponed to a latter date. A total of 8 fights have been confirmed to us so far, with one more preliminary bout set to be announced in the coming days. Check out the current line up below.
