This is great news, now lets see if the deal would go through. I hope Gina and Christiane would accept a deal with the company.
Yesterday, October 21st, 2008, was a sad day for the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and everyone associated with the fastest growing sport in America. ProElite, parent company of EliteXC and other MMA organizations, has thrown its final punch and tapped out of the MMA business. We at the Xtreme Fight Championship (XFC, http://www.xfcfights.com) lament the fall of a once great organization and the black eye sustained by the sport during EliteXC’s demise. MMA will survive this setback and the XFC would like to aid that healing process by extending a helping hand to the millions of MMA fans across the country that discovered this great sport via EliteXC’s promotion of two amazing MMA fighters, Gina “Conviction” Carrano and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos.
The XFC was the first Texas-based MMA organization to recognize the talents and strength female MMA athletes bring to their fights and everyday lives. The XFC boasts many firsts, none more prominent than being the first organization in Texas to hold a women’s professional MMA fight! With a commitment to displaying the talents of the finest MMA athletes, no matter the gender, the natural next step is to extend an open hand to the two greatest female MMA fighters on the planet today, Gina “Conviction” Carrano and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos who now are without an “MMA home”.
MMA fans worldwide have long been shouting their desire to see “Conviction” and “Cyborg” launch their careers into the stratosphere by stepping painted-toenail-to-painted-toenail inside an MMA cage, the XFC shares this desire and wants to be the home of that MMA cage by featuring the biggest “superfight” in the history of the sport: Carrano vs. Santos, January 23rd, 2009, at the Travis County Expo Center in Austin, Texas. It takes the largest state in the Union to showcase the biggest “superfight” in the world! Ms. Carrano and Ms. Santos, please accept this as an official offer from the Xtreme Fight Championship! Reported terms of your EliteXC contracts can be mirrored by the XFC today!
Operating out of Austin, Texas, the XFC has long been viewed as the place for great MMA fighters to test their skills and become household names in “The Lone Star State”. Now, on January 23rd, 2009, the XFC breaks through the final barrier. The “glass ceiling” exists no more, as the XFC presents the first Women’s Title Fight In Texas History, featuring Deborah Garcia versus Jennifer Babcock! Exactly one fight in the world could push this amazing contest to “Co-Main Event” status, that fight is Carrano vs. Santos.
