MIAMI, FLORIDA, Nov. 16, 2021 – Xtreme Fighting Championships is excited to unveil the finalized Main Card for its next highly anticipated mixed martial arts showcase event, YoungGuns 4, on Dec. 10 at The DeltaPlex Arena in Grand Rapids, MI.
In the Main Event, Kenny “The Boss” Cross makes his hotly anticipated return to the Hexagon against challenger Jose “Lil’ Juggernaut” Martinez in the XFC’s stacked lightweight division.
Widely regarded as one of the most exciting young fighters in the game today, the dynamic Dearborn, MI product Cross boasts a 12-3 record on the strength of six straight wins. This is the former Lights Out Championship king’s first fight in over a year, as he was injured during training after his successful XFC Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinal.
Martinez, meanwhile, is 12-5 since making his professional debut in 2015. The hard-hitting Tonkawa, OK product has won four of his past five bouts and has eight wins by stoppage on his impressive resume.
In the Co-Main Event, undefeated super prospect Austin Bashi tries to climb to 5-0 against his toughest challenge yet, Sean “Lucky” McPadden (5-1).
Bashi, fighting out of West Bloomfield Township, MI, has established himself as one of MMA’s brightest prospects following four straight impressive victories in the XFC’s Hexagon before his 20th birthday.
Standing across the Hexagon from Bashi is McPadden, a battle-tested Maple Grove, MN product who’s started his professional career with four wins in his first five outings. All of his victories are by stoppage, including three in the first round.
