XFC Night of Champions Returns to Music City

Press Release - September 11, 2013

On October 18th, Xtreme Fighting Championships brings “Night of Champions” back to Nashville, Tennessee.  2013 will mark the 3rd edition of the event, and the second that the great city of Nashville has been selected as the host.  The yearly extravaganza showcases the XFC’s Champions, as title are defended and new champions are crowned.  This year’s Fall Brawl will see two titles up for grabs in the evenings Main and Co-Main Event.  The action goes down at the historic Nashville Municipal Auditorium.  Doors open at 5pm Central, with live music by Gimm and Icky from 5:30-6:30pm. The first bout starting promptly at 6:45pm.  MMA legend, former UFC Champion Pat Miletich and Michael “The Voice” Schiavello take their seats ringside and go live on AXS TV at 9pm CT/10pm ET.

NOC 3 (Night of Champions III) will be an evening of “firsts”.  The Main Event will pit XFC Lightweight Champion Scott “Hot Sauce” Holtzman, in his first title defense, against North Carolina’s Roger “The Leprechaun” Carroll.  Holtzman, a Knoxville resident, has spent his entire professional career with the XFC; debuting in February of 2012.  The former University of Tennessee Hockey Player ripped off four dominant and consecutive victories before capturing the 155 pound championship in June of this year.  Holtzman’s opponent at NOC, Roger Carroll, wasted no time calling out the newly crowned champ shortly after he won his title.  The tough as nails “Leprechaun” will be making the drop from welterweight (170 lbs.) to lightweight (155 lbs.), hoping to give himself the edge in both size and strength.  Carroll, a black-belt veteran of 22 professional fights, will have a clear experience advantage over Holtzman, but what the gritty grappler from Rocky Top lacks in experience, he makes up in will to win.

The Nashville crowd will also get to see the XFC’s first ever Women’s Flyweight Championship Title Fight, when 125 pound phenom Cortney “Cast Iron” Casey takes on the dangerous Pearl Gonzalez.  Like cross over sensation Gina Carano did before them, both Casey and Gonzalez have proven that they are more than just a pretty face.  The highly skilled and highly competitive beauties will leave it all in the cage for the Music City crowd, as they both lay it all on the line for their first professional title.
