This Single Elimination Featherweight Tournament features 16 of the top amateur featherweight fighters in the state of Florida.  The winner receives a contract to fight their pro debut on Titan FC.  The first round of the tournament is this weekend.  All fighters have successful amateur records to date. It will be exciting to watch the best featherweights in the state of Florida compete for a Pro contract. The first 8 bouts should be entertaining as fighters have nothing to lose, but a lot to gain if they win the tourney.<br><Br>

In the main event Hector Olazabal takes on Andrew Wise. Olazabal is on a 3 fight win streak, in which all wins have been by KO. He is well known in his camp as an aggressive fighter known for his striking ability. Olazabal started out in kickboxing and holds a 4-0 record in his kickboxing bouts. His last loss was in 2012, after which time he decided to hone his skills before re-entering the ring in 2015.  <br><Br>

Andrew Wise at 6-3 is new to XFN.  Wise is a highly skilled grappler having submitted opponents in 5 of his 6 victories.  This is a classic striker verse grappler matchup for the vacant XFN middleweight championship.<br><Br>

BOUT OF NOTE: Mike Szatkowski is a 2 division XFN champion coming off a title win for the lightweight belt. He originally won the welterweight title back in April of this year and used his dominant wrestling to establish a 3 fight win streak. In the XFN10 main event, Szatkowski will be facing Kendly St. Louis, a well rounded fighter who has won all of his fights at 170lbs. St. Louis is riding a 4 fight win streak at XFN and has been gunning for this fight against Szatkowski since the champion won the belt in April.<br><Br>
Another notable fight on the card is the current XFN 145lb champion Tywan Claxton of the Blackzilianz vs Elvin Espinosa in the first round of the 16 man XFN Tournament of Titans. The winner of the tournament finale in February is offered a contract for their pro debut on UFC FIGHTPASS with Titan FC. <br><br>

Also, in our women’s divisions, Jessica Branco from American Top Team vs Lindsey VanZandt of Precision MMA at 110lbs catch weight and Amanda Dieguez vs Sarah Brewster in the XFN women’s bantamweight division (135lbs).
