Kazmaier Makes XFO History, Adds Second Belt


XFO Kendra Kazmaier vs. Kim Bulow

by Matt Lo Cascio

Wrecking Ball’s Kendra Kazmaier made XFO history Saturday night when she became the first-ever female to concurrently hold titles in two divisions. UFC Gym’s Kim Bulow couldn’t answer the bell after a raucous three rounds in the main event, giving Kazmaier a TKO victory and the XFO bantamweight title. She won the XFO flyweight belt in August at the annual XFO Outdoor War.

So how does it feel to make history and win two titles in the span of just over two months?

“It feels unreal,” Kazmaier told Chicago’s MMA. “A couple of years ago I didn’t think this was even possible but I’ve come along way in a short amount of time. I’m in love with fighting. I train just about everyday. I just want to keep learning and growing to be the best I can be. The titles are just a plus. As long as I’m able to fight, I’m happy.”

With two titles to defend on her back Kazmaier will have plenty of fight options in 2019. There is no plan in place yet for which title she will defend first. Here’s video of the Kazmaier vs. Bulow fight, and full results are below.
