DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA -- Only days away, excitement for the Dyna-Pep Rumble In Race Town is building to a dull roar... Xtreme Cage Fighting Federation has answered the countrywide requests of MMA fans for this historic event to be broadcast live via streaming video on Saturday, February 14th at 7:30 p.m. ET.
"Not only do we want everyone to have the opportunity of seeing this event live, more importantly, Xtreme Cagefighting Federation wants to help raise money for Corey Hill, by providing him a percentage of the streaming video proceeds," says Doug Bland, founder of Xtreme Cagefighting Federation.
Corey Hill, who fights out of Rob Kahn's Gracie Tampa stable, was a junior college national wrestling champion and is considered by many to be one of the top up-and-coming MMA fighters in his division. While fighting in an UFC event this past December, Hill broke his leg in what many are calling one of the most gruesome injuries in MMA history.
"This is awesome; I can't believe the folks at XCF are putting something like this together for me. The doctors say I could be out for 12-18 months so any kind of money coming in is going to be a huge help for me and my family," says Corey. Rob Kahn, Hill's trainer / manager also commented, "It has been an incredible experience dealing with XCF on the Daytona event, I can't get over the generosity and professionalism the Bland brothers have shown in the promotion of this event."
Fans can access the live video stream at the XCF Web site by logging onto www.xcfmma.com. The cost to view the live event is $9.95 and can be paid with by Visa, MasterCard or PayPal.
"Xtreme Cagefighting Federation has the deepest appreciation for all MMA fighters. It doesn't matter what organization you are part of or what school you train with, at the end of the day, we all need to better this sport by helping to support each other," said Bland.
Scheduled to fight on the card are former UFC fighters Frank Trigg, Terry Martin, Jesse Taylor, Jeremy May and Blake Bowman. Also competing is former All-Pro Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defensive End, Marcus Jones and Daytona residents Todd Cutler and Byron Byrd.
