Joby Sanchez Looks To Leave XFC 25 The Same Way He Arrives. Perfect.

Aug 26, 2013
(PRESS RELEASE) -- XFC 25: Boiling Point will see the long awaited return of Open Fighter Try Out winner Joby Sanchez. When Sanchez enters the cage on Sept 6th, it will have been nearly a year since we last saw him compete. The 22 year old made his promotional debut last September at XFC 20, where he submitted Chris Dunn at just 1:49 of the 1st round. After his impressive win over Dunn, Sanchez was slated to meet Eric Moell at XFC 23, in Louisville, Kentucky. Unfortunately, Sanchez was sidelined with an injury and had to remove himself from the match up between the two young undefeated fighters. Sanchez’s replacement, Joey Diehl, defeated Moell and handed him his first loss as a pro. The stars have now aligned and wishes have been granted, the Moell versus Sanchez match will finally happen, when the two meet in Alburquerque, New Mexico LIVE on AXS TV. Will Moell prove to the MMA world that Sanchez dodged a bullet in Louisville, or, will Joby prove to Moell that the outcome in the Blue Grass State would have still been the same had he competed?

Joby Sanchez (4-0) has been a martial artist since the age of 7. The New Mexico fighter has studied several disciplines over the years, finding success with every one. One of Chavez Dojo’s most decorated students, Sanchez’s stand up and striking background is well documented. The 1st Degree Black Belt in Kajukembo Karate also holds a Silver Gloves Championship, with an impressive record of 32-3 as a boxer. Not wanting to leave any holes in his game, Sanchez competed in wrestling during his high school years. In 2009, Sanchez was the New Mexico State Runner-up in his weight class. Now, in his second year as a professional mixed martial artist, Joby Sanchez finds himself undefeated, carrying a perfect 4-0 record, and signed to one of the largest promotions in the country. Joby Sanchez is truly one of the sports rising stars and looks to soon add championship gold to his resume. At XFC 25, Sanchez wants to formally put every Flyweight coming into the XFC on notice; that any road to a future title will have to go through him.

Joby had this to say about the pending fight with Eric Moell: “This is a fight and anything can happen, but I just don’t see my opponent beating me. I respect his skills as a fighter, but I really think I am a stronger in every aspect. I am just excited to be fighting for a company as big as the XFC, and getting to do it in front of my family, friends, and the whole Chavez Dojo. With all the love and support I am getting leading up to the fight from everyone, it’s awesome that they will get to be there and share the moment with me.”

Joby Sanchez and Xtreme Fighting Championships invade the Albuquerque Convention Center, in beautiful Albuquerque New Mexico, for XFC 25: Boiling Point on September 6, 2013.
