XFO 42 will be taking place on Saturday, December 10th from the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The night is scheduled to feature fourteen professional mixed martial arts fights in addition to a handful of amateur action. Leading the way on the professional side of the card is a catchweight bout between Carson “Lil Juggernaut” Beebe and Dave Sachs at 140lbs.
Beebe recently signed to fight for the Texas based Legacy Fighting Championship but wanted another fight in his hometown of Chicago before he entered the cage in the Lone Star State. Beebe made a push on his social networking sites to get as many people as possible to spread the #getCarsonXFO tag. The message worked as he is a late addition to the impressive lineup for XFO 42.
Beebe will be riding a two-fight win streak into fight. Most recently he defeated Dan Aguirre at Chicago Cagefighting Championship 4 on October 15. Beebe used his wrestling to prevent Aguirre from landing a big punch. When Aguirre threatened with a submission from the bottom, Beebe set his base and held his position.
Prior to the Aguirre fight, Beebe had a time-lapse with regards to fights. He was called up the UFC to participate on the current season of The Ultimate Fighter, but when he lost his fight to get into the house he was left waiting. Before the first episode aired, Beebe was cleared to fight for Rockford Cage Fights where he defeated Matt Wikoff by armbar in the second round.
Sachs has greatly improving his game over the past year. After starting his career at with a 2-2 record, Sachs has gone on to win five in a row leading up to this fight. He holds a notable victory over Billy Vaughan in 2008. Sachs finished Vaughan in the first round with a triangle choke. Vaughan recently competed at XFO 39 losing in the main event against Jeff Curran.
Sachs took a break from fighting in 2010, but in 2011 he has competed twice for the Wisconsin based Combat USA. Both fights Sachs was able to finish his opponent in the second round. His first fight for the promotion he stopped Stanton Gavia by TKO and his second he submitted Josh Steery by rear naked choke.
While this is a late addition to the card, this is a fight that could have a lot of eyes on it from other organizations.
