Anthony Schott vs Stan Janeczko

Before this fight actually got underway, Janeczko began trotting around the cage with tennis shoes on his feet. He was able to circle the cage two or three times before a corner man made note of the issue and advised cageside assistants. From the get-go, these two men were throwing vigorous punches, few of them landing. Schott briskly took Janeczko down and found himself in the mount position. Schott then delivered copious amounts of strikes resulting in a technical knockout.

Final: Anthony Schott def Stan Janeczko, TKO 1:46 of Round 1

Mike Mahurin vs Tim Holman

Charles Radtke vs Michael Dann

Radtke began the fight with a take-down. Dann attempted a guillotine, which eventually fizzled out. Radtke fought for a favorable position and got it, prompting a flurry of punches that ultimately caused the referee to stop the fight. The fight was over, but Radtke was not done, as he continued to deliver punches to his opponent’s unguarded head. An uproar from the restless crowd ensued as they voiced their discontent with Radtke’s lack of sportsmanship and self-control.

Final: Charles Radtke def Michael Dann, TKO

Gram Livermoore vs Daniel Flora

Daniel Flora began the fight with a failed take-down attempt. Flora again tried a take-down, and on the second attempt was successful. Flora hastily transitioned to mount and proceeded to deliver damaging strikes. Livermoore assumed a flat position, face down, his hands covering his head and showing no sign of escape, prompting a referee stoppage.

Final: Daniel Flora def Gram Livermoore, TKO Round 1

Brian Radtke looking to move up in the XFO

    Xtreme Fighting Organization’s lightweight competitor Brian Radtke is set to make his third appearance at the XFO’s Offsides Fight Night. The event will be taking place Saturday, January 21st in Woodstock, IL at Offsides Bar and Grill.
 
The older of the Radtke brothers, Brian is 23 years of age and sits at 2-1 in his amateur career. He fights at lightweight and will be facing Julian Emert on this coming XFO card. Radtke, like his brother who also competes on Saturdays card, has fighting in his blood. 
 
“My brother and I got into MMA by fighting in the streets almost our whole life,” said Radtke. “When I was getting in a lot of shit I needed a change from a raw and tough life so I moved up here with my brother and started following our dream of becoming great fighters. That’s the only thing me and my brother can see doing in our life; fighting.”
 
The Radtke brothers enjoy competing together on the same cards, as they have done for their past couple of fights.
 
“Every fight that me and Charlie have had it’s been with one another if its him fighting or me fighting or both of us. I love it because he is my brother, who wouldn’t want their brother with them when they fight?
The pair have been training in one of the top gyms in the Midwest at Curran Martial Arts. Full of talented lighter-weight fighters, they go into the cage feeling prepared.
“He is my partner in training every day because me and him are so much alike. It’s perfect, he pushes me and I push him to another level that one else can,” said Radtke. “For our fights, we both take them like any other day. You have to be calm and composed and go in there and do your job. (That is) what me and him are trained to do.”
 
All of Radtke’s bouts have been for the XFO. When he eventually turns pro, Radtke wants to stay with the organization.
“I’d like to keep fighting for XFO when I turn pro because it’s a great organization to fight for,” said Radtke. “My dreams are to make it big and for my name to be remembered.”

    A Team Curran amateur standout is set to make his sixth Xtreme Fighting Organization appearance as Charles Radtke fights on the XFO’s Offsides Fight Night. The event takes place on January 21st in Woodstock, IL at Offsides Bar and Grill. Charlie Radtke is 4-1 thus far, beginning with the Wrecking Ball Fight Facility and then transferring to Curran Martial Arts. He is set to face Michael Dann in one of the evenings featured bouts.
 
Radtke is a born fighter. He grew up fighting alongside his brother, Brian, and they continue to support each other in fighting to this day. They prefer to compete together on the same card, as they have done for all of their XFO bouts.
 
“Being with my brother helps me a lot,” said Radtke. “We just joke and mess around before the fight as if it’s just another day. Every card we have fought together.”
 
The formula has been working for Radtke, who went 4-0 in his first bouts with the XFO. In light of the success, he was granted a title shot for the XFO welterweight belt. Radtke was out-grappled by Craig Fruth, suffering his first loss. He says it will only motivate him going forward.
“Coming off a loss only drives be more,” said Radtke. “I learned not to give up anything. I’m ready to bang.”
 
In response to the defeat, Radtke dropped to lightweight. While being unfamiliar with his opponent for the 21st, he is confident that he will capture the win.
 
“I don’t know much about him, I’m (just) there to fight, and what he gives me I will take. I’m the guy you don’t wanna stand with,” said Radtke. “I’m going to knock you out if you stand with me and I’m going to submit or beat you until you cant breathe.”
 
Radtke went on, “I’m going to show where my true weight class is and show (that) I’m the best in the world at this class already at my young age.”
 
When asked if he had anything to add, Radtke made his feelings clear to his future opponents, “I’m a killer at this class so if you make that bad choice by fighting me or my brother (we) are going to (explicit) kill you in the cage. If you stand in our way of my dreams, you’re dead.”
