XFO returns on Saturday, Feb

XFO returns on Saturday, Feb. 23. Known as the "small
show with big fights," X-treme Fight Organization will hold its 22nd event
in Crystal Lake, Ill.


The night will play host to the return of Ultimate Fighter
season one veteran Josh Rafferty, who is coming off an impressive 16-second TKO
win over Drew Reed at XFO 20. Rafferty is on a three-fight winning streak and
has won four of his last five bouts.  He is scheduled to face World
Extreme Cagefighting veteran Kevin Knabjian, who will make his XFO debut on Saturday
night in welterweight action.


Mike Stumpf returns after suffering his first professional
loss in his last XFO appearance, an unsuccessful attempt to take Ryan Williams’
XFO welterweight belt.


Taking the amateur mixed martial arts scene by storm and
impressing the crowds with powerful slams is rising star Pat Curran. The
younger cousin to WEC contender and one of the top featherweights in the world,
Jeff "Big Frog" Curran, Pat Curran will make his professional MMA
debut as he takes on the hard-hitting and aggressive Lazar Stojadjnovic of Team
