Bao Quach is a Vietnamese-American Featherweight professional mixed martial artist who has fought for Bellator, Affliction, M-1 Global, EliteXC, Strikeforce, World Extreme Cagefighting, King of the Cage, and Shooto promotions.

Background[edit]

Quach is originally from Huntington Beach, California and attended Dana Hills High School where he excelled in wrestling and was a state qualifier. He continued wrestling at Cerritos College before earning a degree from Cal State Fullerton.[3]

Affliction: Day of Reckoning[edit]

Bao Quach agreed to step in for Mark Hominick to face LC Davis at Affliction: Day of Reckoning as Hominick was forced off due to contracting pneumonia.[4] This was Bao's first fight since coming back from his injury which cancelled his 140 lb EliteXC Featherweight Championship fight with Wilson Reis back in September.[5] Quach lost the fight via unanimous decision.

Filmography and other media[edit]

Bao was featured in the Australian film The Heartbreak Kid in 1993 when he was only 13 years old.[6] Quach is also featured in the 2011 video game Supremacy MMA.
