Doug Kuiper, President of Xtreme One Entertainment, had this to say: “Big thanks to everyone who made this night incredible. Our growth continues, and events like this prove we’re a serious league, dedicated to our fighters and their journeys. We’re just getting started.”

The historic Masonic Temple was the perfect stage—vintage Detroit, packed with 1,500 roaring fans. From the prelims to the main event, it was loud, wild, and full of action with nine fights keeping everyone entertained, both live and on PPV.

In MMA, there’s no room for ambiguity. 18 fighters entered the Hexagon; nine walked out winners. Check out the full fight-card results.

Fight of the Night went to Rainn Guerrero, who took a unanimous decision over Pearl Gonzalez. It was a brutal, bloody battle with both fighters landing blows for 15 minutes. Guerrero, now 6-2, showed she can hang with the best.

The heavyweight main event saw Alex Nicholson take down Carl Seumanutafa with a TKO at 4:09 in the first round. Seumanutafa got Nicholson on the mat early, but Nicholson quickly got up and unleashed a barrage of strikes to end the fight. Nicholson, now 16-10, was all respect for his opponent: “I was trying to drop him with every shot, but Carl’s one tough son of a gun, God bless him.”

Local hero Kenny Cross thrilled the crowd by defeating Emilio Chavez. Cross was aggressive from the start, and in the second round, he finished Chavez with an armbar submission. Dan Moret also shined, securing a first-round win over Raush Manfio.

VIPs in attendance included NFL Hall of Famer Calvin Johnson and the board of Xtreme One Entertainment, featuring former WWE champ Ettore “Big E” Ewen, who mingled with fans and posed for photos, showing why he’s such a crowd favorite.

The XFC and Triller TV team didn’t just fight—they also gave back, meeting with students from Team GUTS, a non-profit offering fitness programs to kids with special needs. Fighters and students shared an unforgettable experience in the Hexagon, led by Jessica Aguilar and other fighters, proving that even the toughest fighters have big hearts.
