A bantamweight match has been added to Warrior Wednesday IV on July 3rd. Jose Johnson (8-5) will square of with James Dunn (2-2). James Dunn turned pro in August of 2017. After losing his first two pro MMA bouts, he has evened things up by winning his last two fight by KO. Dunn looks to take that momentum into Warrior Wednesday IV on July 3rd. After last fighting for WXC as an amateur in 2016, Jose Johnson returned to the WXC steel as pro at WXC 74. On short notice he faced Mike Johnson. In that return fight, he got the KO win. Johnson looks to add another KO victory to his resume on July 3rd. Tickets for Warrior Wednesday IV on Wednesday July 3rd, 2019 from Crystal Gardens in Southgate, MI are now on sale.
