XFC International returns to Sao Paulo, Brazil with the XFCi 4 Semi-finals. Athletes in the men’s Lightweight, Featherweight, Middleweight and Welterweight division will face each other in the Semi-finals in the fourth installment of the XFC International Latin American tournament.
XFC International President Myron Molotky commented “We are one step closer to the finals and seeing the rise of new champions in XFCi 4 with the men’s semifinals. We have witnessed wars inside the XFC Hexagon to advance to this point…we expect even more with so much on the line in XFCi 4.”
The Main Event Super Fight features USA vs. Brazil, when American XFC contender Waylon Lowe (14-5) steps into the XFC Hexagon against veteran Marcos Rodrigues dos Santos (21-11) from Brazil in a three round, featherweight bout when XFC International returns to Live TV on REDETV. This is Waylon Lowe’s first fight in Brazil and his debut with XFC International, while the versatile dos Santos comes to XFCi4 with a 14 fight winning streak. In the Co-Main Event, XFC women contenders, Brazilian Kalindra Faria (14-3), and Serbian Sanja Sucevic (4-2) face off for a critical battle for domination in the XFCi Super Fight Strawweight division.
The main card also features Argentine hero Bruno Canetti facing off against Costa Rica’s Alejandro Villalobos in a contest of up-and-coming Lightweights. This is Canetti’s first fight since his XFCi 2 upset win over Luan Gazetta. Also, the main card will feature country rival’s Argentina vs. Brazil as Kevin Medinilla from Argentina will be looking to advance past Brazil’s Pedro Junior. The winners from the main card will move forward to men’s finals scheduled for June 2014.
Molotky provided this insight “Our fighters know what is at stake and are hungry to take advantage of the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a massive television audience on Rede TV!. Each fighter throughout this entire card has earned his position and will represent XFC at the highest level when they enter the XFC Hexagon.”
