CFFC Brings MMA Fights Back to Atlantic City
Cage Fury Fighting Championships, one of the top regional MMA promotions, is bringing a stacked card to Hard Rock this Saturday Night.
The card is headlined by Philadelphia’s Sean Brady (9-0 MMA, 7-0 CFFC), the Welterweight champion, who will face Taj Abdul-Hakim (8-1 MMA, 1-0 CFFC). The undefeated champion hopes to impress enough to catch the eyes of the UFC, as many former CFFC champions have, but is not allowing that to affect his focus on Saturday night.
“In my opinion, he’s the best to ever come through the organization," CFFC President Rob Haydak told me on The Sports Bash on 97.3 ESPN.
Also on the card is Jonavin Webb (12-2 MMA, 11-0 CFFC). Webb, the former 170lbs Champ, is a UFC veteran who is moving up to 185lbs on short notice to challenge undefeated Kyle Daukas (5-0 MMA, 1-0 CFFC) for the vacant Middleweight Title.
Both of Webb's professional losses have come while fighting in UFC.
Its a stacked card, with some great names, who could could be the stars of tomorrow. CFFC has become one of, if not the top regional promotions. Some CFFC alum include Aljamain Sterling, Paul Felder, George Sullivan, and Jimmie Rivera.
Rivera will fight Sterling this Sunday on UFC on ESPN.
I will call the fights with former WWE champion, and UFC star CM Punk, who joined me on the Sports Bash to discuss the card, CFFC and more!
Here is the full card for CFFC 72, which can be seen on UFC Fight Pass.
