XFO 44 at Sears Centre, June 16, 2012


It’s back to the burbs for the XFO, with another pro card on June 16 at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. XFO 44 will feature undefeated Will Brooks against Tory Bogguess in what should be an exciting main event.

Bogguess beat Mikey Santiago at XFO 43, locking him up with a guillotine and putting him to sleep in just :32. He’s won four consecutive fights, with the last three ending in the first round from Bogguess’ vice-like guillotine choke.

Brooks has run through everyone he’s been up against in both his amateur and pro careers. He’s 5-0 with his last 4 wins coming by submission. He last fought in October at Chicago Cagefighting Championship IV, beating the always-tough Ryan Bixler with a second round rear naked choke.

In other fights, MTC fighter Josh Estrada will be making his pro debut against an opponent yet to be determined. Estrada told Chicago’s MMA that the fight will either be at 185, or a catchweight of 195. Estrada has fought at both heavyweight and 205 in his amateur career, and recently made quick work of Chris Appleton at the Rumble on the River’s 10th Anniversary Show. Estrada jumped all over Appleton early and never relented, claiming a victory by TKO due to strikes.

MTC’s Andre Feliciano will be making his second professional fight, taking on Team Curran’s Phil Williams. Both fighters made their pro debuts at XFO 43, and both scored victories. Williams choked out James Smith in the first round, while Feliciano’s win came via a hard fought decision win over Jerald Williams.

Here’s the rest of the card as it currently sits, and we’ll have more on XFO 44 as we get closer to the event.
