XFC 7 creates history on Feb. 20 with first ever pro MMA event in Tennessee – results

It looks as though Xtreme Fighting Championship’s XFC 7: SCHOOL OF HARD KNOX  went off without a hitch last night as the first ever pro MMA event in Tennessee history. PRO MMA (promma.info) received the following press release this morning from the organization:

The first professional Mixed Martial Arts fight card ever allowed in the state of Tennessee, XFC 7: “School of Hard Knox” was history-making even before the first bell chimed. Taking place at Thompson-Boling Arena on the campus of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, the promotion showcased some of the top emerging talent in the sport, including a pair of undefeated heavyweights, Chad Corvin and Scott Barrett, in the main event. And because of the fast fists and electrifying knockouts during the fight card, XFC 7 also made history by catapulting the careers of the next generation of MMA champions to the cusp of superstardom – and perhaps converting the state of Tennessee into MMA fans in the process.

PRO MMA Exclusive Interview: Chad Corvin looks for another highlight KO

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.

Is undefeated 22 year-old Chad Corvin the next great American heavyweight?

Amidst great fanfare and international intrigue, South African heavyweight champion, Rico “The White Lion” Hattingh, entered the main event of the XFC “Clash of the Continents” supercard on December 5, 2008 with an 11-1 pro record, ten gold medals won from international wrestling competitions, a submission victory over UFC veteran Trevor Prangley, and universal recognition as the top heavyweight in all of Africa.

The Mixed Martial Arts media on both continents eagerly awaited Hattingh’s XFC debut against the lesser-known 22-year-old American heavyweight, Chad Corvin. Rico Hattingh left the main event on a stretcher – with his nose shattered in four different locations – after being knocked out cold in 19 seconds. But Hattingh shouldn’t feel too disheartened: None of Corvin’s previous opponents have survived the first round either.
