Battlefield Fight League returns home on November 24 with a main event featuring the best amateur contest possible in B.C. between David Kennedy (5-0 BFL) and Leo Xavier (3-1 BFL) for the former’s welterweight belt. But in case that’s somehow not enough, Battlefield is glad to announce it will treat fight fans to two additional title matches in Vancouver that night.
For those counting, that means three thrilling BFL title fights and a stacked amateur fight card all on one great night at BFL20: “Kennedy vs Xavier”!
Speaking of historic happenings, the BFL amateur lightweight belt will be up for grabs for the very first time at BFL20 between Levon Kinley (2-0 BFL) and Rico Brinson (4-0 1-0 BFL). These worthy combatants are as physically huge as they are massively talented, as each is known to make a significant cut on weigh-in day.
Having stopped his two previous Battlefield fights in under two rounds via submission, Kinley will surely seek to stick to that script by forcing his opponent to choose between tap, nap, or snap on November 24. In so doing, Kinley would appropriately set the stage for is Universal MMA teammate, jiu jitsu ace and submissions master Leo Xavier. Looking to keep all four limbs intact and his airways open long enough to walk away a winner over Kinley will be powerhouse wrestler Rico Brinson. A fighter who is becoming more well-rounded almost by the hour, Brinson has still rarely seen an opportunity perform a devastating power-slam or stifling guard-pass that he couldn’t take with ease.
