Florida MMA promotion Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC) is looking to broaden their horizons by taking their show international. On Dec. 12, 2009, the XFC will hold an event in Berlin, Germany. Following in the footsteps of the UFC in June, the show will mark only the second American based MMA promotion ever to visit Germany.
The Dec. 12 event will feature some of Germany’s own rising MMA talent as well as fighters from the U.S. XFC President John Prisco spoke about the event. “This is an exciting opportunity to showcase the athleticism and skill of XFC fighters internationally,” said Prisco.
“It will inspire a greater appreciation and awareness of Germany’s local up-and-coming fighters, and simultaneously expose the future American MMA legends abroad. These fighters will be branded in a global market with opportunities solely limited by the way they present themselves in and out of the cage,” Prisco explained.
