The fans at the St. Petersburgh Times Forum in Tampa, FL were treated to an exciting, but short main event at XFC 6 – Clash Of The Continents on December 5, 2008.
The South African Heavyweight champion, Rico Hattingh took on an undefeated prospect, Chad Corvin. All the pre-fight hype was directed at Rico Hattingh. After only 19 seconds of action, the only thing directed at the South African champion was medical assistance, and lots of it. He left the cage on a stretcher with his nose broken in four places. He couldn’t return to his native land for more than a month.
Chad Corvin, from Elizabethtown, KY, got his start in the sport of MMA following a street fight with an ending that neither he or his foe were satisfied with. Shortly afterwards, he found out his foe had signed up for a local cagefighting event. Chad followed suit. The promotion’s matchmaker paired up the two, but his opponent never showed up for the fight.
