Cesar Liborio Will Face Julius Lopez for the Bantamweight Title


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.
