The XFC returned to action tonight with XFC 23. The fight card took place at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky. In the night’s main event Bellator veteran Luis Santos snapped a two-fight losing steak by steamrolling UFC-veteran Shamar Bailey.
Santos landed a vicious headkick at the start of the first that sent Bailey reeling. It was all pretty much over after that point, as Santos poured it on to secure his 55th victory.
In the co-main event, Zach Underwood pulled off an upset of Deivison Ribeiro. The bout was not the most thrilling fight in the world, but Underwood showed some solid control to net the victory.
