SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--San Diego’s Leading Mixed Martial Arts Production Xplode Fight Series continues its MMA dominance in the Southern California area after another mega card went into the books on September 22nd in Valley Center.
XFS had 62 fighters compete in 31 matches (16 amateur and 15 pro) without fail. XFS is becoming the benchmark of MMA across the region. Xplode Fight Series continues to push the envelope with the goal of having meaningful fights for the fighters, fans and sponsors.
CEO Gregg Sharp continues to push hard to open more doors for fighters in the region and does it in such a way that there is no mistaking what MMA is all about. “We are here to get as many fighters meaningful competitive fights so that they can climb the ladder to success. Many talk it but we walk it…” states Sharp on his production. “…If you are coming to XFS you better be ready to fight, if you want to dance and hold hands in the cage then XFS is certainly not for you as a fighter.”
This rang true as the punches flew, blood splattered and hands were raised. The culmination of the evening was with Strikeforce veteran Keith Berry winning the Middleweight Title and with a fight of the night having Leonard Smith Jr. the challenger out of Fight Ugly upsetting then Light Heavyweight Champ and UFC Veteran Brodie Farber, as Farber could not answer the bell in the 3rd round.
“Ask the guys who don’t get their hands raised how real the deal is with Xplode or better yet ask the ones that do...” states Sharp. “…you can certainly fight in a lot of cages in California but none of them are going to get you ready for the next level like we do!”
And with several fighters already moving up to the UFC and Strikeforce in the last year there is no doubt that Sharp is correct. Xplode Fight Series IS setting the tempo in California.
