Elite XC has finalized its fight card for the latest event in the Sho XC series, with the main event featuring a bout between undefeated jiu jitsu sensation Wilson Reis and fellow featherweight fighter Abel Cullem.
Sho XC “Challenger Series” acts as way for Pro Elite (Elite XC’s parent company) to showcase up-an-coming fighters on their roster. Although critized for lack of talent/energy, the series has produced some memorable scraps inside the cage. If you have Showtime, you would be well-advised to check it out and polish up on your knowledge of lesser known names in MMA.
