The week before Christmas in 2019 brings with it a packed combat sports lineup.

Between Michigan-based Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting, the UFC, TITAN FC, and Bellator MMA, there will be five mixed martial arts cards that take place this week.

Add GLORY Kickboxing’s Collision 2 event on Saturday to the mix, and you’ve got six combat sports events taking place between now and the weekend.

It all begins this Wednesday night with WXC’s Warrior Wednesday 10 (a.k.a., WXC 85), the promotion’s final event of the 2019 calendar year.

Coverage begins with an amateur undercard at 6:30 p.m. EST, 3:30 p.m. PST on the WXC Facebook page, with the professional main card at 8 p.m. EST, 5 p.m. PST on UFC Fight Pass.

For those of you in the Southgate, MI area who are looking to attend Warrior Wednesday 10 this week, you’re invited to bring your children to the event as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will be in attendance for photo opportunities.

Money raised at Wednesday’s card will go toward helping those less fortunate during the season of giving.

Onto the fights themselves now.

Warrior Wednesday 10 is headlined by a fight for the WXC Flyweight championship as incumbent titleholder Juan Ronderos (3-0) will take on challenger Eric Shelton (13-6).

As is the case with all title fights, this contest will be a maximum of five rounds at five minutes per round.

Contender Comparison:

Heading into the main event on Wednesday night, challenger Eric Shelton is the taller combatant, standing 5-foot-6, three inches taller than champion Juan Ronderos at 5-foot-3.

Shelton has posted a 3-2 record in his last five fights, most recently scoring a unanimous decision against Jesse Bazzi during Warrior Wednesday 8 back on Oct. 30 on UFC Fight Pass.

In the other corner, Ronderos has posted a 5-0 record dating back to his amateur career.

Last time out, he submitted Matthew Elliot in the second round (head-guard choke) during Warrior Wednesday 5 on July 31 on UFC Fight Pass.

The Tale of the Tape:

Tapology shows that Eric Shelton has a 68-inch reach, with no such information accessible for Juan Ronderos.

Prediction: Juan Ronderos by first-round knockout.
