XFC 25: Ricky Rainey Simply Trying To Get His Name Out There

Ricky Rainey understands few people can simply join the UFC and is fine competing for XFC as he looks to make a name for himself. The welterweight will attempt to elevate his stock against Dhiego Lima at XFC 25.

“All I really care about is getting the W,” said Rainey to MMA Weekly. “If I get the win, everything else falls into place. As long as I’m getting my name out there, showing people that I am a real fighter, then there’s no place I really can’t go.”

In 2012, Rainey unsuccessfully debuted for the XFC. He’s taken three wins since then, which includes a pair of first round stoppages.

Lima is 8-1 as he debuts for the promotion. He has spent a few years for Canada’s MFC.

They’re on the main card of Friday’s XFC 25.  It comes from the Albuquerque Convention Center in New Mexico and airs live on AXS TV.
