XFN 383 did not disappoint every fight was action-packed. XFN continues to show why they are the longest-running Combat Sports promotion in the world. XFN showed the exciting debut of Luis “Violent Bob Ross” Pena, who came up just a little bit short of being the king of the Lightweight division. Pena lost a tough decision the man they call “Ronin” Peter Stanonik. Making Stononik a two-time tournament champion. FightbookMMA wishes Stanonik a speedy and healthy recovery. The always-exciting AJ Weathersby successfully defended his XFN Middleweight Kickboxing title over Devin White. XFN 383 also saw the resurrection of a warrior as Bryan Foster opened the show as only Bryan Foster can with a big KO, possibly the KO of the night. XFN saw many resurgences in some great fighters. What a year it has been for XFN. With shows like these XFN definitely keeps putting Oklahoma on the map as a major player in the combat sports world. In other news, it was mentioned earlier this past week that Frank Mir wanted one more farewell fight but to fight on the same card as his daughter rising MMA star Bella Mir. Bella is an XFN veteran who is 1-0 inside the XFN cage and Frank Mir is also the XFN commentator. Could we see Frank Mir possibly stepping into the XFN cage for his last hooray? Who would you want Frank to go against and is there a worthy local Tulsa fighter the public would love to see or a possibility of another major MMA legend that the world would love to see him go against (leave your answers in the comments or on the FightbookMMA social media pages)?
