NBC Sports to televise XFC
September 9, 2020
Duke Mountain Resources has reached an agreement with NBC Sports to present the Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC) live in the US.
“We are pleased to partner with XFC and showcase their action-packed bouts and exciting fighters to fans in the United States,” says Gary Quinn, Vice President, Programming & Owned Properties, NBC Sports.
NBCSN will televise XFC43 on Veteran’s Day, November 11th, featuring live action from the final two hours of ‘main event’ fights.
XFC is returning to the Hexagon under a new ownership group led by CEO Steve Smith and President Myron Molotky. Each fight night will feature bouts from XFC’s three competition series; Young Guns (up-and-coming fighters), Tournament Series (bracket-format fights leading to a weight class champion) and Super Fights (highest-profile and most-established fighters).
“NBC Sports is the gold standard in sports television, with an unmatched history presenting the most prestigious competitions in the world,” says Molotky. “The team at NBC Sports impressed us with their experience, their understanding of our vision, and their commitment to excellence. We are thrilled to join them as partners and to give our fighters an opportunity to shine in front of this powerful audience.”
