XKO 26 goes down with a bang at Gas Monkey Live

Saturday night marked a culmination of sorts for Arlington based MMA promotion Xtreme Knockout.  For a little over five years the promotion, headed by the brothers Thomas and Chris Bussey along with their father Mike, have worked tirelessly to not only grow their promotion but elevate the MMA scene in North Texas behind fan-friendly fights and a fight atmosphere that can best be described as a massive block party. 

This brings us to Saturday night in what will go down in history as XKO 26.  XKO has left their home confines of the XKO Arena (a massive warehouse in Arlington) before.  The promotion had a pair of shows at the Dallas Convention Center in the past.  But this event, XKO 26, stood out as it was the premier of the promotion’s first fight card at the brand spanking new music venue, Gas Monkey Live.

Photo and words by Stacey Verbeek

MAIN EVENT UPDATE: Eduardo Galindo hit the scale at the weigh-in yesterday for the WBO NABO Junior Welterweight title 5 lbs over the limit at 145. He refused to lose the weight in the allowed 2 hour period (and in fact, gained slightly at the 2nd weigh-in). Galindo was fined and had to weigh-in this morning before NABO supervisor Porfirio Betegon at no more than 150 lbs. Galindo weighed in at 151. In spite of this, the Hooker camp is going forward with the fight.

Tag: PFS, PFS 4, Premier Fight Series, Events

West Texas may seem like as desolate a local as one can imagine, the fact that a number of talented fighters call the windswept oil fields home creates a pocked of talent not fully appreciated by some.

Enter Premier Fight Series, a MMA promotion whose legacy has been carried on by family member Ricky and John Barrientes.  Armed with a can-do attitude and a plethora of talent to chose from, PFS has quietly become a staple for fans in West Texas.

Saturday night was no different as PFS 4 took place at the Midland Center in Midland, TX.

Fort Worth’s Hayward “Hybrid” Charles moved his winning streak to three (with all three wins via submission) with a first round arm bar over Gemiyale Adkins Saturday night at Hero FC 5.  Charles, who is the promotions middleweight champion found himself fighting secure in the fact that he would not lose his title even in defeat as his opponent came in ten pounds over the weight limit.

Still, it was of no concern for Charles who may be one of the best submission fighters in the state.  Below is a fan-shot video of the fight.
