On Tonight with Boy Abunda, Baron Geisler commented on his recent tussle with indie actor Kiko Matos, which resulted in the two agreeing to settle their fight “inside the cage” by a Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) fight under mixed martial arts rules (MMA) on June 25.
Baron said he and Kiko wanted to settle their differences through a “street fight” but the story was picked up by ABS-CBN and URCC. He said he thinks “it’s better we will settle our differences pero ang una ko talagang pinaglaban dito ay to free political prisoners (like) Maricon Montajes.”
Baron said that they have already “signed the contract” for the fight but he admitted the sad part is “it’s hard for me to go out sa streets because people think I’m like Bruce Lee. Like I go out and be courteous sa babae and people will just hit me sa likod ng ulo ko.”
Baron then explained what happened in the recent skirmish he was involved in. “That’s why may lumabas na viral video na nagwawala ako. I just went out and I told this girl ‘you’re so beautiful I will help you go downstairs,’ tapos biglang naglalakad na ako pabalik ng hotel, biglang sinuntok na lang ako patalikod. That’s why I don’t even want to use the word bakla e because that’s not right e. Pwede dapat bading pero bilang lalaki, suntukin mo ang lalaki ng patalikod, another sucker punch, that’s like especially to Kiko Matos what he did to me. I shook his hand, I was being a gentleman and he would do that to me.”
The actor said he isn’t close to Kiko and they just met that night of their tussle. He, however, did some research on Kiko and realized that, “uy, ang galing pala niyang artista. Ang dami pala niyang ginawang independent films. So dun ako nagkaroon ng respect.” He clarified though, “nandun pa rin ako sa sige let’s settle our differences, if you want to fight me. I’ve been visualizing my fights every night.” He also promised, “I will not smoke and I will not drink after this fight.”
Asked how he wants to be perceived by the people, Baron said, “he’s just human… I have feelings. Punong-puno ako ng pag-ibig. Marami akong minamahal sa buhay.”
On Fast Talk, Baron was asked “umatras ka na ba sa isang laban,” he said, “opo.” Asked “kanino,” Baron said, “sa lahat po ng mga nagawan ko ng kasalanan. I just want to make amends sa kanilang lahat, because hindi po ako Asked what makes him mad, Baron said, “just don’t provoke me.”
He asked audience to “please support URCC. Watch the fight. There will be blood.” He also said, “this is not fake. How I wish this is a social experiment. But I’m going to be totally there.”
