XFC 16 took place Friday night in Knoxville, TN (practically my backyard). I was there, but sadly I had a very poor view of the action from the seat I was given. However, my brother-in-law, armed with a camera, installed himself cageside and managed to get some great photos over the course of the evening. After the jump are some of the winners and losers from the event, some shots of the fights, and some random thoughts about the whole thing.
The biggest downside to attending an event in Knoxville, with local guys on the card, is that I had to hear Rockytop at least 3 times that night. I could have done without that. Also, it would have been nice to be able to see the fights a little better. But overall the evening was great, there were some nice finishes, and as a plus I got to chat with Schiavello for a bit. Doesn't get much better than that.
