Jimmy Fowler was basically done as a fighter. After four contests in 2010, he shifted his focus towards opening a school. Two years later, Fowler had an itch to return to competition and did so with a pair of wins last year.
Still debating his future, Fowler received a call from the Xtreme Fighting Championship (XFC) and he couldn’t resist.
“I’d been teaching 32 classes a week, so my plate was kind of full,” said Fowler to MMA Weekly. “When I got this opportunity to fight for the XFC it was a no-brainer and thought I had to jump on it while I could.”
He makes his XFC debut against D’Angelo Bynum.
For Bynum, it will be his first professional fight after being 2-0 on the amateur circuit. He only fought twice, taking two wins in 2010. Fowler has earned five wins by submission within two rounds.
The two fight later today at XFC 22 from the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, NC. AXS TV airs the main card.
