Just yesterday, Affliction Entertainment vice president Tom Atencio announced that Mark Hominick was going to withdraw from his bout against L.C. Davis due to a case of pneumonia. In typical Atencio fashion, he kept the show going without missing a beat, as he had already secured Bao Quach as a replacement.
Quach is an EliteXC fallout that has compiled a 15-8-1 professional record. Although his record isn’t going to blow away most, he has won his past nine fights.
Quach will meet Davis on the night’s preliminary card, which airs live on HDNet on January 24th.
Quach’s gym, “No Limits Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness,” made the official announcement on their website today.
Here is how the “Day of Reckoning” lineup shakes out:

L.C. Davis vs. Bao Quach
