Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC) makes its long-awaited return to action after four years away on Veteran’s Day at the Tabernacle in Atlanta. We have the XFC 43 results right here. The only publicly-traded MMA organization, XFC has undergone a major overhaul in preparation for their relaunch. Along with general rebranding and their new Employee Share Ownership Program, it is also going to feature a three-part fight system.
The Super Fights feature high-profile matchups at the top of the card. At XFC 43, those fights will be a bantamweight showdown between UFC veteran Andre Soukhamthath and former XFC featherweight champion Guilherme Faria, and a strawweight battle between women’s MMA pioneer Jessica Aguilar and UFC and Invicta FC veteran Danielle Taylor.
The Tournament Series looks to crown new contenders and champions in various divisions. The opening round for both the lightweight and welterweight weight classes goes down at XFC 43. The lightweight tournament features Kenny Cross, Jarel Askew, Kurt Holobaugh, Joziro Boye, D’Juan Owens, Scott Hudson, Jose Caceres, and Tom O’Connor. The welterweight tournament, meanwhile, will see Bobby Nash, Spencer Jebb, Steven Newell, Carson Hardman, LaRue Burley, Alex Sanchez, Mike Hill, and Ryan Dickson.
The Young Guns fights, as the name suggests, showcases young fighters with limited professional experience but show flashes of potential. This event will feature two of those fights: a flyweight bout between Enzo Perez and Austin Bashi, and a welterweight contest between Luis Navarro and Nick Horton.
