XMMA’s fourth fight card has been announced.

Last week, XMMA released their entire XMMA 4: Black Magic fight card via press release. 13 former UFC fighters are featured on the card as well as Bellator and PFL veterans. Among the familiar names is former Ultimate Fighter winner and flyweight weight challenger John Dodson. Jared Gooden and Sasha Palatinikov, who were released very recently, will also take part.

  • John Dodson vs. Francisco Rivera (Main Event)
  • Curtis Millender vs. Jared Gooden (Main Card)
  • John Howard vs. Ange Loosa (Main Card)
  • Kyle Bochniak vs. Carlton Minus (Main Card)
  • Kyle Stewart vs. Zak Ottow (Main Card)
  • Matt Sayles vs. Tyrek Malveaux (Prelim)
  • Kyron Bowen vs. Sasha Palatnikov (Prelim)
  • Louie Sanoudakis vs Tateki Matsuda (Main Card)
  • John Sweeney vs. Cole Smith (Prelim)
  • Josh Harvey vs. Adli Edwards (Prelim)
  • Andrew Garrette vs. Justin Mead (Prelim)

In October, Dodson (21-13) lost his XMMA debut, dropping a unanimous decision to Cody Gibson. Dodson was involved in a near-fatal car accident during a family trip a few months prior.

Rivera (13-8-1) finished Ryan Lilley in his XMMA debut. The 40-year old fighter would then make it to the finals of the Combate Global: Bantamweight Tournament but would get knocked out.

Bobby Nash vs. Felipe Boaventura was supposed to be on the card; however, Nash had to pull out with an injury.

Per the press release, “After several successful fights in both Florida and South Carolina, we are excited to be bringing XMMA 4 – Black Magic to New Orleans for an action-packed night of fun and must-see fights for the fans,” said XMMA. “We see the future of interactive entertainment all around us, and we’re always looking for ways to super-charge fan engagement and interaction. We’re looking forward to doing everything we can to make MMA content open and accessible to fan communities and to continue showcasing top-tier fighters and electrifying new talent to MMA fans and enthusiasts as this sport continues to grow in popularity.”
