Detroit, MI- Light Heavyweights Kris Lusch (0-0) and John Slayton (1-1) will step into the WXC steel against one and other for WXC 70. Lusch makes his pro MMA debut after competing on the amateur scene for the last few years. He has mainly competed at middleweight but felt it was time to try fighting as a professional regardless of the weight.
His opponent in John Slayton is a former WXC amateur champion and last competed for WXC as a pro in his last fight at WXC 65. In that bout he took on Travis Murchison and knocked him out in his first round, his only pro win to date. He also fought in WXC for his pro debut at WXC 63 in April of last year. With the current 205 WXC title vacant, a statement by either fighter could have them fighting for a title sooner rather than later.
Doors open at 6pm with the fights starting at 7pm on November 11th. Tickets for WXC 70 can be purchased here and are priced as follows; Bleachers- $30, General Admission- $40, Cageside $65, Front Row- $100, VIP table $700 which can seat up to 10 guests.
