XFC President Myron Molotky is thrilled to see XFC add yet another titan of industry to its Advisory Board: “Very early on in the XFC’s conversation with Jeff Lambert we realized he could be a huge asset to our organization, and the XFC is something that he really wanted to support. He’s one of the world’s leaders in corporate communication, and we’re very excited to have him lend his expertise to the XFC.”

Jeff Lambert said, “It is exciting to be joining Xtreme Fighting Championships’ Advisory Board at this critical juncture in their growth trajectory. I’ve been impressed with their unique business model since TiiCKER began partnering with XFC to reward fans and shareholders for their brand loyalty. I look forward to going to battle with the company as we create a fighter-first, fan-owned league that we believe can be the contemporary model for affinity investing and long-term sustainable growth.”
