Full fight card announced for XKO 15 in Arlington
Jake Rosholt vs. Matthew Thompson will serve as the main event.
Arlington-based MMA promotion Xtreme Knockout (XKO) recently announced the fight card for XKO 15 on June 2. While the card may be one of their best to date, XKO is hedging their bets by giving fans an opportunity to meet UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, who will be on hand making appearances and mingling with those who purchase VIP tickets. Needless to say, it’s a night that you don’t want to miss.
XKO is widely considered not only the most successful local promotion here in North Texas, but also the most active. In the span of a couple of years XKO has blossomed from a local club show to a legitimate regional promotion with championship fights, UFC vets, and an exclusive TV deal with TXA 21. It’s with little wonder that an XKO event is sure to bring out a standing-room only crowd of passionate fight fans.
