FiveOuncesOfPain.com has confirmed that a fight for EliteXC’s vacant bantamweight title between Wilson Reis and Bao Quach that had been scheduled for Sept. 20 has been re-scheduled for Sept. 26 during the promotion’s next ShoXC event at the Chumash Hotel & Casino in Santa Ynvex, Calif.
MMAjunkie.com was the first to report the news on Wednesday.
Reis improved his record to 5-0 following a unanimous decision victory over Bryan Caraway during the SHOWTIME portion of EliteXC’s “Unfinished Business” on July 26. The 23-year renowned jiu-jitsu black belt is considered one of the top competitive grapplers in the world.
He’ll be facing an opponent in Quach, who improved his winning streak to nine following his unanimous decision victory against Mark Oshiro during ICON Sport’s “Hard Times” event on August 2. Originally known for being primarily a ground fighter, Quach’s standup has become highly respected under the tutelage of Colin Oyama.
The Sept. 26 event is also expected to feature bouts between heavyweights Jon Murphy and Shane Del Rosario as well as welterweights Matt Makowski and Erik Apple.
