One hundred sixty hopefuls filed into Charleston MMA, all with the same dream and goal; to secure a multi-fight contract with the XFC.

You only get one shot at a first impression, so, when Michigan’s own Dom O’Grady (16-6) decided he would introduce himself to the XFC, and it’s legion of fans, he planned to make an impression they won’t soon forget; and tapped out top contender Eric Reynolds. O’Grady is a true veteran of the sport. With a professional career dating back to 2007, O’Grady has been competing domestically and internationally for over six years. Between 2010 and 2012, O’Grady fought eight times for King of the Cage, with an unprecedented six of those eight bouts for promotional titles. From September to December of 2010, Dom held both the Lightweight and Welterweight KOTC title belts simultaneously.

We learned that as long as you are within 5 pounds of your opponent’s weight the fight will still be approved.
