Xxtreme Knockout (XKO) 2 in Arlington, TX – results

Arlington, TX, Jan. 10th, 2009 – Backalley Promotions out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas has reentered the world of mixed martial arts. They had previously held one event prior to January 10th back in 2002 under Pancrase rules. While that event might not have struck a cord with the local mixed martial arts fans in north Texas, Saturday’s show is definitely going to generate a rippling effect of excitement.

Backalley Promotions owner Mike Bussey has a 20,000 sq ft training facility dubbed simply “The Gym” that also includes a 600 seat auditorium to use to his advantage. Mr. Bussey, along with his sons Chris and Thomas brought some of their professional wrestling experience to the mixed martial arts event on January 10th.

While some feel that we should seperate our sport and sports entertainment, the Xtreme Knockouts 2 event proved that with the right leadership, the sport of mixed martial arts and the showmanship of professional wrestling can be fused into an entertaining product.
