The contracts are signed and the Featherweight Main Event is set for XFC 27 in Muskegon, MI Live on AXS TV Friday Dec. 13th. Former XFC Lightweight World Champion Junior Assuncao (14-5) returns to the cage ready to face off against newly signed 22 year old Daniel Swain (10-2). The two will collide in the headlining fight, just after the Featherweight Co-Main event which will decide the new champion in the division. As if any more incentive is needed, a new title holder being crowned just 1 fight prior their time to shine is sure to give the two fighters an even bigger reason to get the win that night.
Swain (10-2) is a Pancrase and MFC veteran that is looking to continue on his winning ways. He is currently riding a four-fight winning streak with his most recent victory against Tomonari Kanomata at Pancrase 248 in Japan. “Agent Orange” is a wrestling standout who is now training with Trevor Prangley’s AKA school.
Assuncao (14-5) is coming off a big submission victory at Premium Fight Championship 2 against Guilherme Faria de Souza. The Brazlian was on a six-fight winning streak and got a call back to the UFC in 2011 where he picked up a unanimous decision victory over Eddie Yagin. He lost his next match-up to Ross Pearson at UFC 141 in December 2011 and was released from the promotion.
XFC 27 is set to go down on December 13 from Muskegon, MI. The co-main event will be for the featherweight championship, as Farkhad Sharipov will take on Deivison Ribeiro.
