(Subject to Change)

155lbs XKO TITLE FIGHT – SPONSORED BY NEXBANK – UNDEFEATED IN XKO DONNIE “THE BOMBER’ BELL (5-2 THE GYM) vs UNDEFEATED FIGHTER BRAD MITCHELL (2-0 DALLAS JAWBREAKERS) – The vacated title will feature the best 155lbs fighters in XKO. This is a highly anticipated matchup between Donnie Bell a well-rounded fighter with a strong wrestling background and powerful striking faces XKO “Knockout artist” and MMA standout Brad Mitchell. Brad is the only fighter in XKO to beat XKO Champion Steven Peterson and “KO” premier fighter Chris Pecero. This promises to bring fireworks!

145lbs XKO TITLE FIGHT DOUGLAS FREY (10-8 MOHLERS) vs CHRIS PECERO (6-4 AMERICAN REVOLUTION) – Chris Pecero makes his return to the XKO cage after a “fight of the night” performance at XKO with UFC TUF Fighter James Vick. Chris Pecero recently stepped down from the 155lb weight class to pursue his career in the 145lbs division. Chris Pecero who has faced the top athletes in XKO (Chris Jones, James Vick, Brad Mitchell) is ready for another title shot. He faces MMA Veteran Douglas “The Pale Horse” Frey. Frey is a veteran in XKO and no stranger to title fights including his “Fight of the Year” performance for the 135lb belt. With both fighters at the top of their game this fight has “Fight of the Night” written all over it! “I am extremely excited about the matchup and believe it’s going to be a fun fight. He’s a very talented fighter” – Douglas Frey

135lbs ALEX RUSS (3-1 THE GYM) vs TRISTIAN GRIMSLEY (2-2 FITNESS FIGHT FACTORY) It’s hard to describe the excitement for this fight! Alex Russ is making his much anticipated return after over a one year absence from the cage. His last fight was a heart pounding championship fight with Steven Peterson that had the packed XKO arena on their feet the entire fight! Russ looks to return to the cage in top physical shape and ready to take on Tristain Grimsley. Grimsley is no stranger to XKO taking on some of the top 135lb fighters in the Metroplex and he did not hesitate to take this fight. Both fighters are hungry to get back into XKO square cage and are up for any challenge. If you want to see an explosive fast paced fight then this is your matchup!

185lbs ZACK BOARD (0-1 PHALANX MMA) vs BRIAN CHEATHAM (0-1 DALLAS MMA 300) Zack Board made his professional debut at XKO with an impressive fight against wrestler Beau Hohmann. Zack has not stepped back in the cage since that fight took place over a year and a half ago. Zack is a very well rounded fighter with great striking abilities. He takes on Brian Cheatham who is no stranger to XKO. Brian made his debut against JJ Holmes, fought a tough fight but eventually lost to the extremely talented wrestler. This fight will display great stand-up with both fighters wanting to keep the fight on their feet. “I have tried to match the two fighters here at XKO for over a year, but due to conflicting schedules and injuries I was unable to match them up. I believe that this matchup could be “fight of the night” and I’m extremely excited to see it finally happen on Oct. 20th” –Thomas Bussey

130lbs KYLE HESSLER (DEBUT THE GYM ) vs HOMERO GARCIA (0-1 MOHLERS, TEXAS FIGHT CLUB) If you are wanting to see a fast-paced action packed fight then this is your fight! Both fighters are coming in with solid striking and are the lightest on the fight card. Wanting to eventually move to the 125 division both fighters agreed to do a catch weight at 130lbs.This fight will be a battle of technique in striking and a good solid fight! With Kyle making his pro-debut and Homero coming back to redeem his loss this should make for an intense fight.

185lbs SHANNON WHITFIELD (DEBUT METROFLEX FT WORTH) vs ALFREDO LEIJA (DEBUT OCTAGON MMA) Fighting at 185lbs you can expect a knockout in this fight! Both fighters are heavy handed and are ready for war. Alfredo will be making his professional debut with some of the best trainers in his corner and fighting out of Octagon MMA. Shannon did not hesitate when taking this fight. Training out of Metroflex MMA he will defiantly bring his A Game. This matchup will be a classic striker vs wrestler and should get the fans on their feet!

145lbs CASEY HUDSON (1-2 ARLINGTON,TX) vs JAIME ANAYA (DEBUT COBRA JIU-JITSU) Casey Hudson returns to XKO looking to get his first win inside the square cage. Hudson a “fight of the night” nominee is a very talented fighter losing very close battles. He is an excited fighter who has a great wrestling background but has been focusing on his boxing. He takes on XKO newcomer Jaime Anaya. Ayana will be making his pro-debut after a stellar amateur career. Ayana has had many of his battles go the distance just like Casey Hudson. I see this fight going to the judges with a split decision!

135lbs SKYLER CAWDREY(1-1TEXAS FIGHTING SYNDICATE) vs PATRICK YBARRA (1-0 AMERICAN REVOLUTION) This is a fight that not only the fight fan wants to see but the fighters are buzzing about. Cawdrey is an exciting fighter that will entertain the fight fan. He comes out and gives it 120% everytime. Ybarra is another fighter looking to make an impact at XKO. He is traveling to the Arlington area with training partner and XKO title contender Chris Pecero. Both fighters are experienced and well rounded. This could be another “fight of the night” matchup!
