The XFC christened Tennessee with the states’ first ever pro mma sanctioned show, back in 2009 with “XFC 7: School of Hard Knox”; a few months after the state’s commission was put into place. The show featured Rafaello Oliveira and O’Vince St. Preux, who later went on to fight in Strikeforce and the UFC. This will be the promotion’s third venture into Knoxville, as they continue to feature the top prospects not only in the south, but from all over the world.
“We are thrilled to be headed back to Knoxville,” said XFC President John Prisco. “We have done shows there twice before and each time we did very well. We have a lot of momentum right now with our last two shows and I can’t wait for the world to see what we have in store for Knoxville with XFC 16: High Stakes. Not only are we going to use fighters from Tennessee, but I am bringing in some of the top prospects from around the country. It’s going to be a good show and we will be announcing the card very soon.”
XFC 16: High Stakes is sponsored by Sheets Energy Strips & Overthrow Gear and will take place at the the Knoxville Civic Auditorium-Coliseum in Tennessee on Feb. 10th 2012.
