Xtreme Fighting Championship returns to action with a two-part night of fights. The first half of the action is XFC Young Guns 2, a six-fight card featuring prospects in the early stages of their MMA careers. Of the twelve fighters on the card, eight of them are making either their first or second professional MMA appearance. It is all going down live from the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.
XFC Young Guns 2 is headlined by a lightweight matchup between “The Apex Predator” Davi Young and the 4-1 Jake Kozorosky. Young picked up a submission win at XFC’s most recent event, XFC Young Guns 1, while Kozorosky most recently fought for King of the Cage in September 2019. The co-main event pits fellow XFC Young Guns 1 competitor and Ben Rothwell-trained “The CodeBreaker” Cody Linne taking on “One Shot” Orlando Ortega at bantamweight. Linne grabbed a submission win in that professional debut, while Ortega will be looking to pick up his first professional win after losing by submission to Cody Law at Bellator 250.
The most experienced fighter on the card is seven-fight veteran Dennis Hughes, who is a training partner of Kurt Holobaugh, who is set to fight in the second XFC event of the night. He will face Syndicate MMA product Ali Omar, who is riding a three-fight winning streak and holds an overall record of 4-1. The card will also be kicked off by the night’s only female fight, a flyweight bout between 18 year old Autumn Newcomb and Michigan native Atty Belanger.
MMA Sucka has fight fans covered with XFC Young Guns 2 results, with the card happening live on Fox Sports 2 and XFCTV at 8pm ET/5 pm PT.
