Last weekend I went to the XFE 31 MMA fights at Harrah’s and I have to say I was impressed with the quality and crowd at the event. Philadelphia has a rich tradition of fighting here in the City of Brotherly Love and MMA fits right in with that tradition. The arena was a caged ring with a walkway to the ring for the fighters entrance into the ring. The crowd was pumped up to see a great fight card with a total of nine fights.
The XFE (Xtreme Fight Events) holds MMA events around the region and has XFE 32 on December 14th in Bethlehem, PA and another event on the 18th in Bethlehem as well. Tickets can be bought thru the XFE website.
There was plenty of action to be had and the fights saw some heavy hitting, KO’s, and submissions throughout the bouts. Here is a listing of the fight card and the outcomes of each bout.
During the fights I had a chance to shoot some video of the action, here are a few clips from XFE 31: Vengeance:
If you have never gone to a MMA event, I would recommend going to an XFE event. It was a lot of fun and the atmosphere was charged for the fights. A special thanks to Helen Locura for having TalkSportsPhilly cover the bouts. Give XFE a like on Facebook and a follow on Twitter as well.
Here are some more photos taken during the fights:
