Frank Sharipov Ready for a Title?

Posted on December 13th, 2008

XFC brought yet another 10 thousand plus people into the St Pete Times Forum for a night of fast paced MMA action. The most notable fight of the night was very clearly the match up between Justin Goodall and Haender Rodriguez for the 135 belt. It was an all out slug fest for nearly 3 straight rounds. Haender hit Jason about as hard as any 135 pound man can hit yet he still didn’t go down. With every hit it looked like it may end but Goodall never stopped coming and near the end of the third round knocked Haender down ending the fight with a TKO.

Franks team feels like this puts Sharipov in the running for a title fight with the now 5-0 Jason Goodall. After all, he did just defeat the very talented Haender Rodriguez (one of the most respectful fighters in the game) a month prior to Haender’s fight with Goodall. Some would say Justin Goodall is the best 135er in the Southeast, but Sharipov deserves a chance to prove them wrong. Fight Frank Justin!

Special thanks to 24 Seven Mag for the picture. Great work guys!
