Xavier Foupa-Pokam last fought at BAMMA 11 in December 2012, where he scored a split decision victory over Jack Marshman. Prior to that he dropped a unanimous decision loss against Claudio Henrique da Silva at SFL 6 in October 2012. Xavier now has the chance to begin a winning streak with a good performance against Troyer on March 29th.
John Troyer is unbeaten in his last five fights, most recently scoring a unanimous decision victory over Vasily Novikov at SFL 8 in November 2012. Prior to that he picked up a second round submission win over Sean Huffman at Hardrock MMA 45 in March, and recorded a No Contest against Luke Harris at AMMA 7 in June 2011.
