Berchelt vs. Vargas • MMA News
WBC gold is on the line tonight (Sat. May 11, 2019) in Tucson, Arizona. Miguel Berchelt takes on Francisco Vargas for what is to be his fifth consecutive title defense. Vargas is currently on a two-fight win streak after suffering the first loss of his career to Berchelt in their first fight back in January of 2017.
Berchelt actually won the title from Vargas in that contest. Now, Vargas will get the chance to avenge that defeat. Also on the card is a WBO junior featherweight title fight between Emanuel Navarrete and Isaac Dogboe, another rematch. Navarrete dethroned Dogboe back in December.
