XMMA 6 went down live on Wednesday, May 3, 2023 with a small army of notable UFC and Bellator MMA veterans.
In the main event of the Myrtle Beach-based card, UFC alum Francisco Rivera Jr. faced former Bellator MMA standout Ricky Bandejas in a bantamweight bout. Last seen in action under the Eagle FC banner, Bandejas was looking to bounce back from a loss to Ray Borg, while Rivera was 1-2 in his last three fights, including a loss to John Dodson at XMMA 4.
Also in action on Wednesday, Mandel “Rat Garbage” Nallo, a TriStar athlete and former Bellator standout, took on Jorge Daniel La Terra. UFC vets collided when Teruto Ishihara went up against Vince Morales, and Saidyokub Kakhramonov saw his first action since a rather surprising UFC release, against Rafael Costa.
Update, 7:25PM ET: Kakhramonov vs. Costa is your co-main event at XMMA 6
