Injury has changed the complexion of the Triple A MMA X: Genesis co-main event, originally scheduled to be a Bantamweight bout between Isaiah Reyes (7-5) and Russell Wilson (3-3).
Wilson has been forced to withdraw from the bout due to a cut sustained in training.
Now facing Fit NHB’s, Isaiah Reyes is Perez Fighting Systems, Derek Perez (1-3), and the bout will be contested at Featherweight. Talk about a complete opposite Reyes had expected to face a wrestler with a good submission game; but will instead now face a fighter with pro boxing experience an a underrated submission game. Reyes will be looking to end a skid, that has seen 3 straight decision losses, while Perez who is coming off a submission loss to Russell Wilson, will be looking to end a 2 fight skid.
