After starting off 2018 with their ﬁrst pro MMA card, Florida based mixed martial arts promotion, Xtreme Fighting Nation (XFN), will be ending off the year featuring some of the sports top prospects not yet signed by the UFC.
The nights main event features two up and coming Colombian featherweight prospects, Danny Chavez (8-3) vs Felipe Vargas (6-0). Chavez is coming off of a knockout victory at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino back in April 2018, and his opponent Vargas is feeling conﬁdent after his submission victory on UFC FightPass from February this year, extending his unbeaten professional record to 6-0.
The co-main event will be a battle at welterweight as BJJ black belt Fred Moncaio (5-3) faces off against a dangerous brawler Alan Arzeno (7-9).
Moncaio was riding a four ﬁght win streak before getting stopped for the ﬁrst time in three years and is looking to get back in the win column. Meanwhile Arzeno will be looking for his sixth KO victory.
Also on the card:
Undefeated welterweight prospect Miguel Baeza (5-0) faces Pan American Sambo gold medalist Matthew Colquhoun (4-2). UFC veteran Daniel Jolly (6-3) will meet Bellator MMA veteran Emmanuel Verdier (4-2-1) in a light-heavyweight matchup.
A WMMA rematch is set between Trisha Cicero (1-3) and Angela Jennings (1-0) who ﬁrst squared off as amateurs back in 2016 for the XFN amateur women ﬂyweight championship. Cicero won the ﬁrst meeting by submission in the third round, but Jennings feels she has more weapons in her arsenal to take the victory as a professional.
XFN amateur lightweight champion, Elvin Espinosa (6-2 am) makes his long awaited pro debut against Stephen Defalle (1-2).
