ISLAND LAKE, Ill. — Hometown hero Clay Guida will attempt to extend his winning streak to 14 bouts when he makes his first defense of the Xtreme Fighting Organization lightweight title this Saturday outdoors at Sideouts Bar.
In his way is John Strawn, a fighter who also knows about winning streaks. Strawn, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has a 28-5 record and once had a 26-fight win streak of his own.
XFO 7 is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are available by calling Curran Martial Arts at (815) 356-0454.
Also on the 12-bout card, 5-time UFC veteran LaVerne Clark makes his return to MMA… he hopes to put together a streak of his own en route to a return trip to the UFC.
Standout wrestler Clay French (3-0) of Eastern Illinois University will battle Josh Aroacho (2-0) of Council Bluffs, Iowa, in a battle of unbeatens.
