Dhiego Lima must deal with Ricky Rainey at today’s XFC 25, but he’s already thinking ahead.
“I have this fight booked with XFC, but my plan is to go to the UFC,” said Lima to MMA Junkie. “I don’t wish to go to Bellator or anywhere else. Any future fights, until I get into the UFC, will be on a single-fight contract. I’m not signing anything long-term.”
This comes after Lima completed a five fight deal for Canada’s MFC. He’s 8-1 and riding two wins. The lone defeat came via decision from Nathan Coy.
Rainey is 6-1 and has taken his last three out of XFC. Two of those wins were first round stoppages.
XFC 25 is today, September 6, and can be seen on AXS TV. It hails from the Albuquerque Convention Center in New Mexico and FightLine will have the results.
