CFFC CEO Rob Haydak said via press release that the XFE brand would be gradually phased out, and CFFC would take over the task of promoting more than 25 shows in 2015, while ultimately having as many as 100 fighters on the roster.
XFE owners David Feldman Sr. and David Feldman Jr. will remain with the freshly merged organization.
“This acquisition is huge for us. Not only are we increasing our roster and number of events, but we are getting some key personnel who will continue to take us to the next level,” Haydak said.
Comcast currently broadcasts CFFC fight cards in eight of its 11 markets. The promotion also has signed a deal with SportsNet New York to show its fights in New Jersey, New York, and much of New England.
CFFC 38 will serve as the last day the two companies will operate as separate entities. On Aug. 16, the new and improved CFFC will make its debut at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Penn.
“We will build the best roster in the world outside of the UFC,” Haydak said. “I have zero interest in buying fighters. So many promotions over the years have failed miserably doing that. At CFFC, we will build tomorrow's stars.”view original article >>
