Grande told The Advocate prior to the event that he had signed a four-fight deal with XFC.

“It was a really good opportunity – it’s a big, solid promotion,” he said on July 31.

Prior to his professional debut, Grande won 15 of his 16 amateur MMA bouts around the world – his resumé includes a world championship, Pan American Title and national championship.
