XFC 7 creates history on Feb. 20 with first ever pro MMA event in Tennessee – results

It looks as though Xtreme Fighting Championship’s XFC 7: SCHOOL OF HARD KNOX  went off without a hitch last night as the first ever pro MMA event in Tennessee history. PRO MMA (promma.info) received the following press release this morning from the organization:

The first professional Mixed Martial Arts fight card ever allowed in the state of Tennessee, XFC 7: “School of Hard Knox” was history-making even before the first bell chimed. Taking place at Thompson-Boling Arena on the campus of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, the promotion showcased some of the top emerging talent in the sport, including a pair of undefeated heavyweights, Chad Corvin and Scott Barrett, in the main event. And because of the fast fists and electrifying knockouts during the fight card, XFC 7 also made history by catapulting the careers of the next generation of MMA champions to the cusp of superstardom – and perhaps converting the state of Tennessee into MMA fans in the process.

Tuff-Nuff winner Ryan Couture with coaches, Ron Frazier and Shawn Tompkins

PRO MMA (promma.info) has been covering the TUFF-N-UFF events for quite some time because we recognized early on what a valuable platform they provide for amateur MMA athletes. They call their shows “Future Stars of MMA” for a reason; because their tournament-style events offer a breeding ground for up-and-coming fighters to build a name for themselves and get the experience they need to move on into the world of professional mixed martial arts competition.

On Sunday, April 15, TUFF-N-UFF: FUTURE STARS OF MMA returned with the first rounds of a four-man 135lbs. tournament, an eight-man 155lbs. tournament, an eight-man 170lbs. tournament, a four-man 205lbs. tournament, and a 130lbs. female MMA fight. To top it off, they had a main event featuring Ryan Couture, the son of MMA legend Randy Couture and a member of Team Xtreme Couture, taking on Art Martinez from Team Fubar at 155lbs.

GAMENESS FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP – GFC 2 summary & results from Nashville, TN

GAMENESS FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP’s GFC 2 took place at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds Sports Arena on Saturday, Feb. 14, in Nashville, TN. The fights started at 8pm but the doors opened at 7pm and the place was already packed. It was a cold night in the city but this didn’t keep the fans away, just as the snow didn’t deter the fans from GFC’s inaugural show back in December.

This was the same Sports Arena I came with my Dad to watch local Pro Wrestling shows as a kid. Pro Wrestling stars such as Dutch Mantell, the Iron Shiek, and Jerry Lawler were larger than life and fascinated me as a child. A few decades later I’m back in the same arena but this time the action is real.
