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, 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 15 fighting events in the past four years, held at stadiums and venues in Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, & over-seas in Greece. Recently signing an 8 fight deal with Hdnet, the XFC is quickly growing to be one of the top MMA promotions in the world.
