LAKEMOOR, Ill. – Ryan Williams continued his perfect streak in the Xtreme Fighting Organization, while Mike Stumpf’s run came to an end when the two welterweights battled for the XFO championship Saturday at the Lakemoor Banquet Facility.

Williams (6-1 overall) made it four straight XFO victories as he scored a unanimous decision over challenger and previously undefeated Mike Stumpf in one of three title fights at XFO 21. Stumpf (now 6-1) had been 5-0 in XFO competition.

In other title fights, Boban Simic recovered from the brink of extinction to score a TKO win over Natu Visinia at 1:30 into the second round to win the vacant XFO heavyweight title. Simic had been dropped only seconds into the bout, but managed to recover in time before referee Rob Hines had to halt the bout.

Luke Zachrich (7-1) ended a tough bout against veteran Bill Hill with a knockout punch with only 4 seconds left in the first round to win the vacant XFO middleweight title. Zachrich is a training partner of former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight champion Rich Franklin.

In another tough bout, Pride veteran Mike Russow (8-1) used a north-south choke to finish Steve Campbell with just over 30 seconds left in the second round.
