Xtreme Fighting Championships has partnered with Brazil’s Number 1 sports channel, Combate Brazil, to broadcast XFC events, starting with XFC 43 on Nov. 11 on TIME OF BROADCAST.
XFC events were previously broadcasted live across Brazil too much national fanfare. Combate Brazil is Brazil’s go-to destination for sports in the country. The Main Card of XFC 43, XFC’s historic relaunch event, will be shown live on Combate Brazil, as well as the event’s official Weigh-In Event on Nov. 10.
Brazil is the mecca of MMA, and no broadcast network in the country has a bigger audience than Combate Brazil, XFC President Myron Molotky explains.
“There’s simply no better broadcast partner in Brazil for XFC than Combate Brazil. All of our most classic moments have been aired nationally across the country, establishing XFC as a household name in Brazil. It feels great to be back on national airwaves because there’s no doubt in my mind the best has yet to come.”
The feeling is mutual, echoed Rafael Gruenbaum, Head of Combat Sports & Combate Channel.
“We are very happy to reach an agreement to broadcast the 43rd edition of Xtreme Fighting Championships on Combate. Such events like XFC help us improve our portfolio and achieve our purpose of offering the best of combat sports content to our subscribers. Our fans can expect a great event and a great broadcast.”
The XFC 43 Main Card features former XFC Featherweight Champion Guillerme Faria against top American contender Andre “The Asian Sensation” Soukhamthath in the Main Event. The Co-Main Event features a strawweight battle between Jessica “JAG” Aguilar and Danielle “Dynamite” Taylor. It also features a pair of bouts from the first round of the XFC Lightweight Championship Tournament; Kenny “The Boss” Cross vs. Jarel Askew and Kurt Holobaugh vs. Joziro Boye. Opening the card is a YoungGuns Series bantamweight bout between Austin Bashi and Enzo Perez.
