International Fight League veteran Bart Palaszewski will return to action tonight as he headlines XFO’s latest offering in Island Lake and faces lightweight prospect Eric Wisely.
Along with many of other his fellow employees, Palaszewski was released from his IFL contract last month, paving the way for him to become a free agent. He has struggled as of late. A promising start in the IFL eventually led to a three-fight losing steak, which Palaszewski snapped with a win over UFC veteran Jeff Cox at Adrenaline’s inaugural show in June.
Wisely has won two out of his first three professional bouts. He most recently dispatched of Luke Gwaltney via a third-round TKO due to a cut at a recent Mainstream MMA show. Other featured bouts include Pat Curran, the cousin of former WEC featherweight title challenger Jeff Curran, going up against Matt Hughes-trained Amir Khillah as well a XFO bantamweight championship bout between Josh Hosman and James Haourt.
