We don’t see that many eight-man single night tournaments in the sport anymore. Kunlun Fight and K-1 still hold them in China and Japan, but you don’t see them very often in Europe and seldom in America.
The good news is an eight man tournament is taking place on Thursday in Tulsa, Oklahoma at Xtreme Fight Night 361. XFN events are promoted by former champion Dale “Apollo” Cook, and a few XFN fighters have competed for K-1 and Glory, such as Randy Blake and Haze Wilson.
XFN 361 will be broadcast on UFC Fight Pass, and the tournament field includes a few recognizable names.
Alfred “Freight Train” Walker, who won an XFN eight-man tournament a couple of years ago, returns to compete in this year’s edition.
Also scheduled for action in the tournament are a couple of MMA veterans-UFC vet Brian Foster and Bellator alum Cody Carrillo.
The action begins at 9pm EST/6pm PST
