Late last week Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney denied claims that his promotion offered a contract to ex-UFC fighter Leonard Garcia. According to Garcia's management, however, that story is "childish and far-fetched at best."
Former XFC champion Nick Newell on Friday refuted claims that he was scared to defend his belt, saying that he exercised an opt-out clause in his contract to leave the promotion with a goal of drawing UFC interest.
The XFC's twenty-fourth fight card is in the works as the organization will hold an event headlined by a Nick Newell vs. Scott Holtzman lightweight title fight on June 14, 2013, at the USF Sundome in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Xtreme Fighting Championship (XFC) 22 complete quick results from Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, last night (Feb. 22, 2013) that featured a lightweight main event of Scott Holtzman vs. Jason Hicks. See who won and how.
Underdogs are unveiled for Henderson vs. Melendez and Cormier vs. Mir, Pat Healy calls out a pair of exciting UFC lightweights, and Bellator MMA prepares for its Spike TV debut on today's edition of the Morning Report.
"Notorious" Nick Newell is a promising young lightweight (and XFC champion) who is undefeated at 9-0 with eight finishes and six submissions. So why has UFC President Dana White refused to give him a shot at UFC superstardom?
