JM de Guzman challenges Enrique Gil to MMA fight

JM de Guzman has challenged fellow Kapamilya actor Enrique Gil to a one-on-one mixed martial arts fight two weeks after the latter tried to hit on his girlfriend.


"With all due respect to Enrique Gil's friends, fans and family. I would like to challenge you to a one on one [amateur] mixed martial arts match any place any time," the "All Of Me" lead star said in his Instagram post.

"I'll give you time to prepare. Man up. Face me. (reply to my text messages please.) thanks brother.: @enrique17," he added.

The IG post has been deleted. However, some netizens were able to capture a screenshot of the message.


On September 4, Gil allegedly got drunk and rowdy inside a plane as he and other ABS-CBN talents were heading to London for the ASAP Live concert. He reportedly had an argument with Jessy Mendiola and was slapped in the face by his love team, Liza Soberano.

In an interview aired on the primetime newscast TV Patrol a week later, the actor owned up to his actions by apologizing to the couple.

A showbiz blog reported that de Guzman was enraged after learning about the incident.

Because of the controversy, online sources said he and Mendiola broke up. They were supposed to attend the 2015 Star Magic Ball at Shangri-La Makati last Saturday but did not show up.

It's not yet known whether or not Gil already accepted de Guzman's challenge to an MMA fight.
