This Sunday at the 2013 Florida MMA Awards red carpet event, XFC’s John Prisco took home the award for Best Matchmaker of the Year. This marks the second year in a row that Prisco was recognized and selected for an achievement award at the annual Awards Show. By years end, John will have been responsible for matchmaking well over 60 fights across 6 nationally televised XFC MMA events on the AXS TV network. This year alone, Xtreme Fighting Championships (XFC) has produced stadium fight cards in Florida, Kentucky, N. Carolina, New Mexico, Tennessee, and Michigan.

Based out of Tampa, the organization was credited by the Tampa Tribune for setting the Florida statewide attendance record for an MMA event, when they drew over 11,000 fans to the St. Pete Times Forum and was credited in by Yahoo Sports for being “the best kept secret in the sport.”

The Florida Mixed Martial Arts Award Show was created to recognize the Florida Mixed Martial Arts Community for their contribution to the fastest growing sport to date. In 2011 more than 500 MMA fighters fought in Florida, yet no one was recognized for the sacrifices, commitment, and dedication to the sport. Until Now.

Each year, the Florida MMA Awards Show will recognize the efforts of those who have made an impact inside and outside the cage. This event will also let the world know that Florida is a market for Mixed Martial Arts and that we are working hard to push the sport forward.
