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.
Additional featured fights on the card include Anthony Lapsley going up against Aaron Wetherspoon, Mike “Joker” Guymon facing James Fanshier, and Daniel Hernandez taking on Rick Legere.
