LAS VEGAS, July 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Shawne Merriman’s Lights Out Xtreme Fighting (LXF) today announced the LXF10 event in Pauma Valley, California on August 26, 2023, marking Merriman’s return to the region. The event comes on the heels of record viewership on Fubo Sports, the live, free-to-consumer TV network from FuboTV Inc., the leading sports-first TV streaming platform.

“Returning to the San Diego area with LXF is something I’m so proud of,” says Shawne Merriman, founder of Lights Out Xtreme Fighting. “I brought the same attitude and dedication I had on the NFL field to the sport of MMA with Lights Out Xtreme Fighting. It feels like a full-circle moment to back, especially as we’re reaching more viewers than ever.”
