WHAT IS XFC?
XFC (Xtreme Fighting Championships) is one of the leading Mixed Martial Arts Organization in the United States. Based out of Tampa, Florida, XFC has produced fight cards in Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, & recently over-seas in Northern Cyprus, and is currently pursuing international ventures in 12 other countries.
A DIFFERENT KIND OF MMA ORGANIZATION
XFC differentiates itself from other MMA organizations by holding a huge fan base and providing resources to undiscovered talent. XFC also owns and operates several MMA training facilities for professional fighters, amateur fighters and even children. With eleven professional fighting champions, XFC hopes to reach out to new fighters and train them on a professional level.
XFC was founded in 2006 by John Prisco, and the organization’s popularity has grown exponentially ever since. In 2007, the organization set a Florida statewide record for attendance of an MMA event for drawing over 13,000 fans to the St. Pete Times Forum. Every event held at the Forum since then has brought over 10,000 fans each. In April 2009, XFC held its first televised fight card in Tennessee. It aired on HDNet. XFC has come a long way since its first fight show in 2007 at a Tampa line-dancing bar, the Dallas Bull. Since then, XFC has produced nine fighting events in the past two years, held at stadiums and venues in Florida, Tennessee and Kentucky. Eight more fight cards were planned for 2009 and 2010, and they’re now pushing into XFC 13 in Dec 2010.
