Friday, Oct. 21XFC 14: Resurrection

For the first time on UCF’s campus, being considered a “lightweight” won’t cause inebriated heads to hang in shame. Because in the world of mixed martial arts, and at tonight’s Xtreme Fighting Championships bout at UCF Arena, the term describes the most lean, mean ass-kicking machines of the sport. What XFC President John Prisco intends “to be a war,” tonight’s fight card centers on the brawl between former World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight champion Jamie Varner and three-year pro “Ladies Love” Nate Jolly. And as a teaser to the main-card event, a group of 10 fighters take to the ring in five back-to-back battles, including currently undefeated female scrapper Marianna Kheyfets and a familiar face from Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter, Charles Blanchard. Heads up for some serious sweat and blood in the ring, alongside, of course, the occasional beer-chugging contest in the stands. – Aimee Vitek (7 p.m. at UCF Arena, University of Central Florida; $10-$50; 407-823-6006; ucfarena.com)
