Bobby Nash Advances To Welterweight Final With 3rd Straight, 1st-Round KO At XFC 44

DESTIN, FLORIDA, June 2, 2021 – If Bobby “Nashty” Nash is ever in need of a new nickname, may we suggest “The Sandman?”

Nash has sent his past three opponents to dreamland, including back-to-back, jaw-dropping first-round knockouts in the Hexagon. 

Nash’s most recent smash took out Ryan Dickson at XFC 44 on Friday at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA, LIVE on FOX Sports 2, FOX Deportes and around the world on XFCTV.com. 

With his victory over Dickson, Nash cashed his ticket to the Final of XFC’s Welterweight Tournament against fellow knockout artist LaRue Burley (11-4). 

“I’m very happy with how things played out at XFC 44 — that was the most vicious knockout of my career,” the former Big 10 wrestling standout says with a laugh.

“I’ve been putting in a lot of work on my boxing and doing a lot of sparring,” he adds. “I’m really starting to believe in myself and my striking ability.”

Nash believes his Final matchup with Burley has “Fight of the Night” written all over it.

“This one is going to be violent and exciting,” he offers.

“LaRue hits hard and so do I, so this one is going to be a banger. He has the power to put anyone out, but he’s not going to land that overhand on me. We’ve both got serious power.

“Don’t blink.”
