EliteXC has tapped Abel Cullum to step in to replace the injured Bao Quach in the promotion's first bantamweight (140-pound limit) title bout. Cullum will face Wilson Reis on Sept. 26 as part of a ShoXC event on on the Showtime premium cable network.

Quach suffered a fractured orbital bone in training and subsequently had to be withdrawn from the card, according to ProElite.com.

Allum brings with him an 11-1 professional record in the bout against the undefeated Reis. He is the current "King of the Cage" flyweight champion, among other honors.
