Tonight two local Ohio Valley fighters head north to Southgate, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, for WXC 71. The event, Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting: Night of Champions X will be on UFC’s Fight Pass Network.
Muhammed Abdullah (9-3) will take on DeQuan Townsend (18-7) in the main event for the promotion’s professional interim welterweight title. In the co-main event, Dustin Parrish (6-1-1) will take on Troy Lamson (9-2) in a 165-pound catchweight match-up.
Before the main event bout takes place, Dustin Parrish will take on local favorite Troy Lamson. Parrish an Indianapolis, Indiana native will make his way out of the Hoosier state for only the second time in his professional career.
Coming into this bout with back-to-back wins, Parrish looks to extend his winning streak. In his last outing, the American Top Team product stopped Tyler Combs late in the opening round of their fight at Colosseum Combat XLI.
“If he wants to take me down, fabulous, I’ll take one of your limbs off,” the division two wrestler told Jim Gramm in a recent interview. “If you want to stay on your feet, great, I’ll knock your teeth in.”
“You’re going to sign a death waiver, we’re going to walk into a cage fight, we’re going to get into a fistfight, and we’ll figure it out from there,” Parrish explained to Gramm when it came to Lamson’s trash talking.
The “Pretty Boy” Lamson comes into the co-main event match-up on a three-fight winning streak. Two of those wins come over Alexander Trevino. In his most recent outing, he earned the unanimous decision win over Bellator veteran Kyle Prepolec.
The action at WXC 71 kicks off tonight 6 PM at Crystal Gardens in Southgate, Michigan. The event will be available as an on-demand event on UFC Fight Pass and will be viewable next week.
