Eric Moell is seeking redemption, but he will have to travel across the country to find it. Moell will return to action at XFC 25 in Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 6th live on AXS TV, when he faces hometown star and winner of the 2012 XFC open fighter tryouts, Joby Sanchez.
After reeling off six consecutive wins including his first three professional bout, Moell was afforded the opportunity to show why he was one of the Ohio Valley region’s toughest fighters. Originally, Moell was to meet Sanchez in Louisville at XFC 23, but after Sanchez’s injury withdrawal, he met Team Curran fighter, Joey Diehl. Moell ended up suffering his first professional loss, and first loss since 2009, at the hands of Diehl.
Eric will get his chance to right the ship when he travels from Ohio to New Mexico to tangle with Sanchez as part of the main card of XFC 26: Boiling Point. Eric is known as a guy who can take you down and submit you fast, but so is Sanchez. He proved this in his fight with Moell’s teammate Chris Dunn. Before the loss to Diehl, Moell had finished his last five fights within the first round, all by submission. Training at Alliance MMA with teammates such as XFC vet Chris Dunn and other top level regional fighters you can expect a more refined and definitely a hungrier man to step into the cage.
Moell had this to say about his experience with the XFC: “I am getting to travel the country to fight. do what I love to do, and pay my bills. I guess dreams do come true.” Will the dream become a reality when he meets Sanchez? Eric said this about travelling to Joby’s backyard. “On September 6th I fight in his home town and he gets to have his fans present. I carry my fans with me to every fight, I have the best fans, and we are coming to Albuquerque on a mission, to get the win in violent fashion.”
Eric Moell and Xtreme Fighting Championships invade the Albuquerque Convention Center, in beautiful Albuquerque New Mexico, for XFC 25: Boiling Point on September 6, 2013. The event is presented by ICRealTime Security Solutions, and ThroatPunch Ind. Apparel. The event will be broadcast live on AXS TV, beginning at 10 pm eastern.
