Sofie Bagherdai signs with XFC!

Share this post

Sofia BagherdaiIt's true - female MMA fighter, Sofia Bagherdai, recently signed a long term deal to fight with Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC). According to all reports, this is a move that will give the Wand Fight Team member a steady schedule of fights and an opportunity to face some of the best talent in Women’s MMA.

“I’m really excited to have added Sophia to our women’s division. We have been doing at least 1 female fight on our cards for a while now, and with our new additions, we will be able to start doing 2 women’s fights on some of our cards,” said XFC President, John Prisco. “Sophia had a tough fight in April, but I saw a lot of things to be excited about. She’s an aggressive striker, and she has a solid ground game as well. She is going to put on some great fights inside our XFC cage.”

It's obvious Prisco is a promoter who thinks outside of the box. In a time when most promoters where just thinking about presenting female MMA fights, the XFC was promoting them:  

Bagherdai is now the second women’s competitor to sign with the promotion for a long term deal, this year. Heather Jo Clark, the other female fighter signed by XFC this year, will be fighting Bagherdai in her first fight with XFC. Clark is a fighter out of Jackson-Winklejohn’s gym. The two fighters have matching (4-2) records and will fight at XFC 18 at a catch weight of 120lb. on June 22nd in Nashville, TN.

“I’m excited for the national exposure, but most of all I’m excited on how much XFC focuses on their fighters,” said Bagherdai. “I know Heather Clark is a tough opponent, but I also know that everyone that steps in this promotions cage is a tough opponent. I train hard for every opponent, I am sure that Heather and I will put on a great fight for the fans.”


If you're a female MMA fighter who's looking to fight for a top promotion, XFC is actively seeking out top prospects in each weight class. For more information go to Official XFC. You can follow the promotion for daily updates on Facebook & Twitter (@OfficialXFC). XFC 18 is sponsored by ICRealTime Security Solutions, with the event shown live on HDNet from the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee June 22, 2012.

Zoila Gurgel - Feeling the Pain of Abandonment

Share this post

Zoila GurgelIn this day and age when female fighters are finally coming into their own, and promoters are doing what they can to market a hot commodity, at least one fighter is feeling the sting of abandonment by her promotion. Zoila Gurgel told Shaun Al-Shatti at in a interview: "It's been a while since I've heard from anybody at Bellator."

"For my own promotion to kind of diss me like that, it's like, wow. It just puts the icing on the cake," an exasperated Gurgel admitted on The MMA Hour.

And while I don't agree with my fellow journalists' statement that: "In today's testosterone-fueled MMA scene, we've been left with just two major female mixed martial arts champions -- Strikeforce bantamweight Ronda Rousey and Bellator strawweight Zoila Gurgel" - I do agree that Bellator's "marketing approach for both women could not be any more different."

Some fans say Zoila's wins against Megumi Fugii and Jessica Aguilar were flukes, but let's look at her overall record: out of 12 fights, she's only lost to Miesha Tate. Before fighting Fujii and Aguilar, she fought and beat Jessica Penne, Michelle Ould and Rosi Sexton, pretty tough fighters in their own regard.



What do you think - is Zoila right? And should she be attempt to contact Bellator first, before shooting herself in the foot and publicizing her grievances...or maybe she has already?

Please go here to read the entire interview.
