“When you look at the big picture, only the XFC, UFC, & Bellator travel to do shows. It’s tough to pack the houses when you are in a different city all the time, but we’re doing it. That alone shows you how much we have grown in the past few years.” said XFC President John Prisco.
“Our Open Fighter tryouts just drew over 200 fighters from around the World, looking to fight in the XFC live on national television. One guy took home the 5 fight contract and that was Bantamweight Jeremiah Labiano.”
When asked about signing ex-fighters from other top ranked promotions to a multi-fight deal, Prisco had this to say, “I don’t give a sh** if you’ve fought for UFC or Strikeforce, you need to beat my guys and my guys are f****** animals. I could care less if you’ve had a UFC contract in the past, that’s the UFC’s problem. My guys are now your problem! The UFC does not have the best talent in the industry, I’ve said this for years…..”
