Get up to date on the four hard-hitting, 155-pound contenders showcasing their skills in the Lightweight Tournament.
Kurt Holobaugh (18-7) vs. “Handsome” Scott Hudson (12-5-1)
Kurt Holobaugh returns to the XFC Hexagon after his jaw-dropping, 26-second KO victory over Joziro Boye in their Quarterfinal matchup at XFC 43 in Atlanta. Representing Louisiana, 15 of Holobaugh’s 18 wins are by stoppage (six knockouts, nine submissions). Holobaugh was a late replacement for an injured fighter in the tournament, but he’s quickly proven to be one of the field’s most dangerous competitors.
Canadian “Handsome” Scott Hudson advanced to the Semifinals with a smothering victory over D’Juan Owens at XFC 43. The hard-nosed Ontario product has won five straight heading into his bout with Holobaugh. Six of the former hockey player’s wins are by finish (four knockouts, two submissions).
Tom “Big Nasty” O’Connor (9-1) vs. Damonte Robinson (6-1-1)
Canadian Tom “Big Nasty” O’Connor takes aim at his 10th straight victory after most recently scoring a third-round KO over Jose Caceres at XFC 43. The well-rounded, tough-nosed Alberta fighter has proven to be one of the most gritty fighters in the game, taking out his past four opponents in the third round of their bouts.
Damonte Robinson jumped at the opportunity to step in for the injured Kenny “The Boss” Cross. Representing Ohio, Robinson has proven to be one of the most exciting young fighters in the sport as he takes aim at his fifth stoppage victory in Des Moines, IA.
