MIAMI, FLORIDA, Nov. 29, 2021 – The final Xtreme Fighting Championships (OTC:DKMR) event of 2021 goes down Dec. 10 at The DeltaPlex Arena in Grand Rapids, MI. This action-packed offering to combat sports fans includes a number of established stars in the sport and a glimpse into the future of the Hexagon. Here are the five biggest storylines heading into fight night.
“The Boss” Is Back
After more than a year on the sideline due to a torn ACL, top lightweight contender Kenny “The Boss” Cross returns to the Hexagon to battle Jose “Lil Juggernaut” Martinez in the Main Event. Michigan is Cross’ backyard, and he’s hungry to earn his seventh straight win in front of his fans, friends and family at The DeltaPlex Arena. This is Cross’ first bout in Michigan since he won the Lights Out Championship lightweight title with a 69-second KO at The DeltaPlex on Feb. 8, 2020.
“Lil Juggernaut” Ready To Spoil Cross’ Homecoming
Standing across the Hexagon from Cross, of course, is Jose “Lil Juggernaut” Martinez. A professional since 2015, Martinez hails from Oklahoma and is Cross’ toughest challenge yet. He is 12-5 with two first-round stoppages in his last three victories heading into his Hexagon debut, and is eager to spoil his opponent’s homecoming.
High-Stakes Co-Main Event Showdown
In the Co-Main Event, Austin Bashi tries to live up to his billing as “super prospect” when the 20-year-old looks to climb to 5-0 in the Hexagon against challenger Darnell White. Bashi is quickly establishing himself as one of the sport’s top prospects, and a win on Dec. 10 will go a long way in setting the stage for another breakout campaign in 2022. White, though, is far from a stepping stone, and he’s gunning for a signature win in his second trip to the Hexagon.
Top Fighters Debut In The Hexagon
White XFC fans are well aware of established contenders like Kenny Cross, Austin Bashi and Dennis Hughes, YoungGuns 4 features an exciting slate of top prospects ready to turn heads in the Hexagon. That list includes lightweight Ryse Brink, who tries to climb to 9-2 at the expense of Hughes, who’s hungry to advance to 3-0 under the XFC banner and 7-3 overall. Mando “El Toro” Gutierrez, meanwhile, looks to improve to 6-1 against Chaka Worthy (4-4).
Battle Of Unbeaten Prospects in Preliminary Card Headliner
Fans are ill advised to show up late to The DeltaPlex on Dec. 10, as the action-packed Preliminary Card features a pair of the top amateur contenders in the United States in Michigan upstarts Joel Harkey (5-0) and Hunter Oberst (3-0). This is a bout with two future stars in the MMA world and it’s one of many action-packed bouts that will help set the stage for the Main Card.
