Detroit, MI- After having to cancel our show on April 10th and being on hiatus since January due to COVID-19, the WXC is back in action its long awaited return to weekend shows. WXC had cancel several events this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the following regulations set by the state of Michigan. With some of these restrictions lifted, WXC will be able to hold an event with no crowd on Friday October 30th for WXC 87.
WXC 87 will be broadcast live on UFC Fightpass starting at 8pm eastern. The main event of the evening will be a flyweight super fight. Two former UFC competitors will be throwing down in the WXC steel as Jarred ‘The Monkey God’ Brooks (16-2, 1 NC) battles Elias Garcia (6-2). More match-ups will be announced in the following weeks.
Elias Garcia comes into his WXC debut having lost his last two fights. However those fights were against top talent inside of the octagon of the UFC. Before his two fight stint in the UFC, Garcia won his first six pro fights in a row. He did so in impression fashion earning three wins by submission and two by knockout. He also has a big win over Adam Antolin who is a veteran of TUF and the Contender series. Garcia is on a similar path as his opponent, trying to get back to the UFC. A win over Brooks put him on the right track to getting back to that spot.
Jarred Brooks returns to the WXC cage for the first time since October of last year. In his long awaited WXC debut that was over two years in the making, he fought the undefeated Victor Altamirano at Warrior Wednesday VIII. ‘The Monkey God’ proved to much for Altamirano earning a second round submission victory. He then finished 2019 with a win in Bellator in December. Brooks has now won three of his last four fights after losing two in a row. Now with momentum behind him he looks to continue on the winning track and maintain his status as one of the best 125 fighters in the world at WXC 87.
