XFC Signs Prospects Kevin Forant, Keith Richardson, and Ricky Rainey Following Impressive Victories at XFC 19
In front of a sold out crowd on August 3rd, several standout fighters entered the XFC cage in their debuts. But it was three that made lasting impressions, ultimately awarding them a follow up phone call from XFC President & Matchmaker John Prisco. Welcome to the XFC guys!
After a win at XFC 19 in his home state of North Carolina, Kevin Forant has come to terms on a multi-fight contract with the XFC. Forant, now (3-0) as a professional with 9 straight wins, will enter the Lightweight division of one of the top MMA promotions in the country.
XFC has added another proven finisher to its roster. After a quick first round submission victory over veteran Lawson McClure, Keith Richardson agreed to a multi-fight contract with the XFC. Richardson is now (7-3) as a pro with all seven victories by way of submission or knockout.
Richardson has worked his way through most of the Featherweights in the Carolina region and will now travel the East Coast with one of the world's top promotions seeking out competitors in the 145b. Richardson will now prepare for his next appearance with the promotion for a date that is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Ricky Rainy showed the XFC officials enough to earn another fight with the organization though he came up short in his bout at XFC 19. Rainey dominated through the length of the fight with Johnny Buck, before a brief lapse in judgment lead to an unexpected KO loss.
Rainey showed huge promise with his striking ability and had the Charlotte crowd on its feet in excitement through the first round. Rainey will be a force to reckon with in the XFC Middleweight division, and joins the likes of Josh Samman, Reggie Pena, and Dustin West in the 185lb class.
