A lightweight bout between former WEC champ Jamie Varner (18-6-1) and UFC veteran Drew Fickett (41-16) will headline Xtreme Fighting Championships' next major event.

XFC officials announced the fight earlier today.

The show, "XFC 16: High Stakes," takes place Feb. 10 at Knoxville Civic Auditorium-Coliseum in Tennessee. The main card airs live on HDNet.

Varner fights for the second time under the XFC banner. The former WEC lightweight champion is 2-1 since his departure from the WEC, where he was one of the organization's biggest stars. Most recently, he scored a 69-second knockout of respected vet Nate Jolly. Prior to the bout, Varner, who recently relocated to New Jersey and joined AMA Fight Club, was stuck in a 1-4-1 skid.

Fickett, meanwhile, recently posted a five-fight win streak, which included three victories in a single night to win the Shine Fights lightweight grand prix in September 2010. However, he's dropped three straight since then with knockout losses to Brian Cobb and Tatsuya Kawajiri, as well as a submission loss to Ronys Torres (at welterweight).

In addition to Varner vs. Fickett, XFC officials have confirmed that fast-rising 125-pound female fighter Marianna Kheyfets (4-0) will take on Team Jackson-Winkeljohn's Heather Clark (4-1) in a televised main-card bout. Kheyfets previously was announced for the show, though her opponent wasn't.

Sure if anyone wants to send me ten picks for who wins each fight... I'll count up who wins and just use this same thread to say who got the most right

you could pick the event on Tapology.com and post your picks here as an image that updates itself as results come in

i'm pretty sure they do an embed image for individual picks as well as all of them, they even do the scoring for you
(that's if you want to use their score system)

we use it all the time for little comps among friends, mainly on UFC events ... great fun!

There were some nice fights on HDnet tonight! Wow Varner, glad you didn't stick with the retirement I'd guess. Here is a play by play nicely done if you missed any fights:



Daniel Crockett def. Shane Machette via unanimous decision

Chris Coggins def. Jay Meneghello in round one via sub (armbar).

Scott Holtzman def. Brandon Demastes via RNC, round 1


Dustin West vs Stoney Hale

Round 1: Hale shoots for a takedown and pushes Dustin West against the cage. He's throwing some knees to the thighs while West pushes off. Dustin West with a kick to the liver and follows it up with BOMBS! Stoney Hale is in the fetal position and Dustin West is just murdering his face with punches. The ref was incredibly late on that stoppage. Hale's face got murdered with punches.

Official Result: Dustin West def Stoney Hale by TKO

Amaechi Oselukwue vs Julio Gallegos

Round 1: Gallegos with an early right hand. What the heck is going on with Oselukwue's hair? Looks ridiculous. Gallegos with the takedown and Oselukwue is trying to get back to his feets. Knees to the body by Oselukwue and then some knees to the head. Oselukwue just knocked Gallegos out with right hand. He followed up with a single shot while Gallegos was exploring the 4th dimension.

Official Result: Amaechi Oselukwue def Julio Gallegos by TKO

Chase Gormley vs Brandon Sayles

Round 1: Sayles lands a quick jab. Gormley with a slow takedown and looked more like Sayles tripping than an actual wrestling maneuver. Gormley quickly gets mount but he escapes with butterfly guard. Gormley is working from halfguard and dropping elbows and passes to side control. Sayles is like a turtle. This isn't a good fight. Sayles throws his legs up and has an inverted triangle but he can't finish it. Sayles regains his feet and he's trying to work his boxing. Gormley slips a punch and lands a counter. Overhand right from Gormley as the round ends. 10-9 Gormley.

Round 2: Oh the fights are back. Gormley with a solid kick to the body and he looks incredibly awkward when throwing it. Gormley fails on a takedown as Sayles side steps it. Gormley throws an unsuccessful overhand. The Voice calls this fight boring and he's underselling it to viewers. This isn't a good fight. Gormley unsuccessful on another takedown. Sayles finally pushing the fight to a brawl. He's battering Gormley with punches. This really is like two manatees fighting. Imagine manatees throwing punches with their little seacow hands. That's this fight. Ugh.

Round 3: Woah! These guys get three rounds? YIKES! Gormley got a takedown after Sayles was landing punches. Sayles working for a keylock against the cage to get back to his feet but he can't escape. Sayles is flat on his back and tries to escape. He can't. He's got 90 seconds left and he can't escape. His eyes are closed and he may be legitimately sleeping. It's what everyone else is doing after this terrible fight. Jeez this is still going on? There's 15 seconds left and this is gonna be Brandon Sayles first lost. This wasn't a good fight! 10-9 Gormley.

Official Result: Chase Gormley def Brandon Sayles by Unanimous Decision.

Len Cook vs Chris Wright

Round 1: Wright doubles up his jab and Cook responds with a leg kick/right hand combination. They clinch up and Wright lands an elbow to the ear. They are fighting for position against the cage and it is Wright who appears to be stronger in the clinch. WTF happened to the camera? Okay we're back with shots of the fighters. Cook attempted a throw and ends up on his back with Wright landing short punches to the face. Cook is attempting submissions and broke Wright's posture down. Three right hands land and Mike Cook is bleeding. Wright is super active on the ground.

Round 2: Wright in southpaw and he clinches up against the cage. Wright trips Cook to the ground and Cook has a leg lock. Wright rolls out and is safe in Cook's guard. Wright is landing some solid punches. Cook continues to threaten submissions but he's not close to finishing anything. Cook has broken down Wright's posture momentarily. Wright explodes with punches that continue to batter the bloody Cook. Cook trying to play rubber guard but he can't keep Wright locked down. Ref stands the fighters up with 10 seconds left and there's the horn.

Round 3: How did XFC afford a crane? Cook accidentally kicks Chris Wright in the groin. Cook shoots for a takedown and Wright clinches up and spins him into the cage. He's unsuccessful on all takedowns and hasn't figured out how to chain a second attempt together. Cook pulled guard and he's gonna get punched in the face again. Cook regained his feet and tried a suplex but Chris Wright gets back to his feet. Round ends with the fighters clinched. This is a clear win for Chris Wright.
