XFC returns home for XFC 24: Holtzman vs Newell - June 14th at the USF Sundome

The XFC's twenty-fourth fight card is in the works as the organization will hold an event headlined by a Nick Newell vs. Scott Holtzman lightweight title fight on June 14, 2013, at the USF Sundome in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Xtreme Fighting Championships will return to Tampa Bay on June 14 for XFC 24 at the USF Sundome. The promotion has been touring the United States, outside of Florida since December of 2011, and will return to the city where it all began for an event that is headlined with the first title defense for current lightweight Champion "Notorious" Nick Newell (9-0) and rising star Scott Holtzman (4-0).

After holding 10 events at the Tampa Bay Times Forum (then the St. Pete Times Forum), the XFC spent 2012 and the beginning of 2013 traveling the southeast and executing events in Kentucky, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Now, with a much larger & more dedicated fan base, the XFC returns to the city where its fans once set state attendance records for MMA; Tampa, Florida.

XFC President John Prisco made the announcement for the date and location after receiving thousands of messages & tweets wondering when the promotion would return to its stomping grounds. "I am excited to be coming back to Tampa. This is where it all began for us," said Prsico. "We spent some time expanding our fan base and signing talent from across the country, now it's time for the XFC to deliver another great show in Tampa."

A full bout line up has not been announced, however the show is expected to feature some of the top fighters under the XFC banner, several top local standouts, a women's bout, and recent Open Fighter Tryout winner Jeremiah Labiano. Numerous Florida fighters are under contract with the promotion and generally travel out of state to be a part of XFC events, so it is likely that a descent handful will be a part of the first event in their home state in almost 2 years.
