XFN-2 Returns on January 15th, 2014

XFN-2 (Xtreme Fight Night) returns with another exciting night of amateur MMA action at Knockers Sports Bar in Miami Gardens, Florida on Wednesday, January 15th, 2014.

After a successful debut this past November with a packed house, President and CEO, Daniel Kay brings another super stacked fight card with two titles fights and the debut of Women’s MMA.

The night of fights features the introduction of the bantamweight and strawweight Women’s MMA divisions under the XFN banner. In a Bantamweight match, Jennifer Nixon from Padrino’s MMA in Hialeah faces newcomer Danielle Gallagher from Rush Squad MMA in Hollywood. In the Women’s Strawweight division, American Top Team – Coconut Creek, submission specialist Jessica Branco faces striker Shelishka Silva from Tampa’s Team Assassin.

The fight card will be topped off by two Championship fights: Romeo Valdez vs Charles Moreland for the XFN Heavyweight Title and Junaure ‘Zoepapi’ Saintil vs Lazaro ‘Navajita’ Perez for the ISKA Lightweight State Championship.xfn-2 235x

Valdez and Moreland fought only months ago in a championship bout at ‘The Rise of a Warrior 12’ and Valdez came out with the decision victory. ‘Moreland has every intention of ruining Valdez shot at another belt, and is aiming to take home the XFN Heavyweight Title,’ said Kay.

Junaure Saintil, unbeaten in nine fights (9-0), will be facing knockout artist Lazaro Perez in his final amateur bout. Perez is also undefeated (3-0), two wins by KO, says he is not intimidated by Saintil. This is an ISKA State Championship bout and BOTH fighters will have to weigh in at exactly 155 pounds to secure the title.

Veteran MMA referee, Troy Waugh will be officiating the night’s bouts at XFN-2. Waugh has refereed matches at WEC, Bellator, Strikeforce, and the UFC. Waugh was also recognized as ‘Best Referee’ at the 2012 Florida MMA Awards.

The undercard is full of upcoming champions ready to prove themselves in the cage, fighters returning from their bouts at XFN-1 and new fighters added to the XFN roster.
