King of the Cage lightweight champion Joe Camacho will defend his title against EliteXC veteran Victor Valenzuela in the main event of the organization’s “Bio Hazard” show tonight at the San Manuel Casino in Highland, California.
Camacho rebounded from a disappointing loss to Fabricio Camoes at a ShoXC event in April to score a first-round verbal submission win over skilled wrestler Zach Light at Sparstar Promotions inaugural event last month. Camacho claimed the KOTC lightweight crown with a knockout of Thomas Denny in January.
Valenzuela will return to KOTC after splitting a pair of fights under the EliteXC banner. He bounced back from a quick submission loss to James Edson Berto by submitting colorful veteran Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett at a ShoXC offering last summer.
Sam Caplan at Five Ounces of Pain! is reporting that Aaron Wetherspoon has suffered an injury and is out of his Gladiator Challenge and King of the Cage welterweight unification title bout with Jeremiah Metcalf.
Replacing Wetherspoon will be middleweight Jaime “El Cucui” Jara (15-4). Jara is currently on a 10 fight winning streak with victories over Carter Williams, Kyacey Uscola, and Anthony Ruiz. The bout will take place at a catch weight at 175 lbs.
