Michigan-based Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting returns to UFC Fight Pass this Wednesday night for WXC- Warrior Wednesday 5 (a.k.a., WXC 80.)
In total, eight MMA fights will be contested this Wednesday night. Not all fights on the card will be on the broadcast.
Southgate, MI’s Crystal Gardens plays host to the midweek MMA showcase, streaming on UFC Fight Pass live at 8 p.m. EDT, 5 p.m. PDT.
Highlighting this Wednesday night’s show is a main event for the WXC Flyweight championship. In the title fight, 2-0 Juancamilo Ronderos will fight 4-0 Matthew Elliot.
Matthew Elliot enters this Flyweight title fight as the taller contestant. He stands 5-foot-4, two inches taller than Juancamilo Ronderos at 5-foot-2.
Dating back to his amateur career, Juancamilo Ronderos has posted a perfect 5-0 in his last five MMA appearances and is currently on an 11-fight winning streak.

Most recently, he won via first-round submission due to a heel hook vs. Jesse Bazzi last August in PFO: Glory, with just one second remaining on the clock.
This Wednesday’s main event will mark Elliot’s first career appearance in Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting.
Ordinarily at this point in the article, we’d mention who has the reach advantage as per the tale of the tape on Tapology.
No such information was accessible for this fight, however.
