CFFC is set to take over the Borgata this weekend in Atlantic City, as the organization will host two separate fight cards at the venue on Friday and Saturday night.
On Friday, the organization will debut its new all-amateur format with CFFC 54: Next Generation.
Current UFC fighter and former CFFC champ Jonavin Webb is the matchmaker for the new series, and the card is anchored by a bout featuring Brad Boulton vs. Vinnie Archer.
Then on Saturday, CFFC 55: Feel the Fury will feature an an 11-bout all-pro lineup, including two massive title fights.
Feahterweight champion Jeff Lentz (11-5-1) is set to defend his title for the first time against challenger Bill Algeo (7-2).
Lentz is a veteran of “The Ultimate Fighter” and also competed in Bellator and won the Ring of Combat title. His most recent bout was last May, when he claimed the CFFC title with a win over Jared Gordon.
Algeo hails from Pennsylvania and is 6-1 under the CFFC banner. He most recently competed at CFFC 48 last June when he topped Anthony Smith at CFFC 49.
Also on tap is the first-ever CFFC women’s flyweight title fight, as Katlyn Chookagian (5-0) takes on Brazilian fighter Isabelly Varela (7-0) in a bout that could put one of them in the top ten rankings at 125 pounds in the world.
But the fight that CFFC CEO says he is most excited to see is a heavywieght matchup between former champion Plinio Cruz (7-6) and Joe Stripling (8-8).
“The fight I’m looking forward to is the heavyweight one,” Haydak told the Press of Atlantic City. These guys just stand and throw bombs. They’re crowd-pleasers, they’re very exciting fighters and whoever wins that fight will be in line for a title shot.”
