Current Bantamweight Champion, Julius Lopez will be putting his title on the line against Cesar Liborio, on Jan. 26, 2018.
Lopez is 6-6-0. His last fight was on July 22, against Sean Mcalpin at Cage Wars 28. Lopez won the match 2:23 minutes into the first round with a submission choke hold.
Liborio is 3-1-0 and has faced Lopez before at Real MMA VII, in 2015. Liborio won that fight by unanimous decision. However, he has not had a bout since April 2016.
It would appear that Lopez has the training and experience this time that could allow him to keep his championship title. He has a height advantage, however, it did not seem to help him in 2015.
This fight will be on Jan. 26, at Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino. The first bell rings at 7 p.m. PT. Lopez vs Liborio will be the first bout of the evening.
