Roldan Sangcha-an has been announced as the latest fighter out of the Philippines to sign with the UFC. He will debut at UFC FN New Zealand on June 28, 2014 against Richie Vaculik.

Sancha-an is a 22 year-old Wushu Sanshou specialist with unending endurance and a well-rounded MMA game. While pursuing his Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management, the now graduate from Baguio was never defeated in his MMA career.

Sangcha-an trains alongside notable Filipino fighters Mark Eddiva, Eduard Folayang, and Honorio Banario at Team Lakay. His appointment to the UFC is a swift one for the standout, who at just 4-0 is quite wet behind the ears for such a big step. His opponent, Vaculik, only has one appearance in the Octagon which was a loss last December to Justin Scoggins. However, Vaculik’s 9-2 record on the Australian circuit gives him a huge step up in experience over Sangcha-an.
