“MMA fans from around the world will be excited to witness the caliber of athletes that Latin America has to offer in XFCi 2,” said Eduardo Duarte, Director of Events/ Matchmaker of XFC International. “The Next Generation of Champions will be discovered, and we will follow these champions from the XFC International events to our championship events in the US.”
In the Brazil show, fighters from the men’s divisions will meet with the winner moving on to the next stage in a tournament series. The final winner of each weight division will emerge as the season champion, moving onto bigger fights in the United States and in the XFC International Super Fight Series.
"XFCi 1 was a huge success for MMA fans around the world,” offered John Prisco, President of XFC USA. “We are excited to see the pool of talent from Latin America developed and rising through the ranks to become the next generation of stars in MMA.”
Myron Molotky, President of XFC International, elaborated on the vision of the expansion into Latin America.
“XFC has demonstrated a rich history of discovering The Next Generation of MMA superstars, and Latin America has been a driving force in the rise of popularity and the evolution of MMA,” Molotsky remarked. “Our mission is to discover and reward fighters that, up to this point, have not had the opportunity to display their skills on the biggest stage. Our partnership with REDE TV! will enable MMA fans throughout Latin America to witness the rise of their local warriors through the XFC International tournament series.”
