Tompkins Inks Deal With XFA

Xtreme Fighting Association

On Wednesday, Mike Russell of the Fight Network reported that Xtreme Fighting Association announced the signing of Team Tompkins founder Shawn Tompkins; the announcement has put to rest any speculation that Tompkins would return to fight with the Affliction promotion this fall after a 7-year sabbatical from the sport.  Lending credence to this announcement was the fact that last year, Tompkins had said that he was contemplating a return to the cage, based on his training with such MMA mainstays such as Dan Henderson, Wanderlei Silva and Randy Couture.  No opponent as of yet has been named for Tompkins’ debut this fall, but XFA President Chris Reis says that the crowd in attendance for the event will not be disappointed in the quality of opponent that Tompkins will face.
