GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “CFFC 43” BEGINNING NOVEMBER 24
November 20, 2014
GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as CFFC presents another show stopper with CFFC 43 featuring a full lineup of extreme cage fights, including 2 title fights, emanating from the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This event will showcase the top regional MMA stars along the Eastern seaboard as CFFC presents another hard-hitting event.
In the main event, CFFC Welterweight Champion and undefeated fighter Jonavin Webb (7-0) battles the always dangerous former Bellator World Champion Lyman Good (16-3) with the title on the line. Webb won the CFFC title back in August via TKO in the third round and his first title defense against Good is sure to be a clash of champions. Webb is a blue chip prospect from New Jersey and has never tasted defeat in either his pro or amateur career as a mixed martial artist. Webb is a submission specialist with a great wrestling game and once the fight hits the mat, he can finish the fight via tapout or ground and pound. Good is a solid grappler and has added a vicious Muay Thai game to his MMA arsenal as of late. Good amassed a (7-3) record in Bellator against some of the world’s top welterweights. He is no stranger to the big fight and will look to collect another belt, this time the CFFC Welterweight Championship, at the expense of Webb. Look for Good to test the striking of Webb early and often.
In the co-main event, former CFFC Champion and TUF vet Tim Williams (9-1) takes on Strikeforce vet Ron Stallings (12-4) in a middleweight showdown. Williams was at the top of the CFFC middleweight division in 2012 and looks to get back to that spot in quick order. Williams is known for keeping constant pressure on his opponents either with punches and kicks on the feet or relentless takedowns and submission attempts on the mat. Nobody has every outworked Williams in the cage and it’s a streak he plans on continuing against Stallings. Williams has never been to a decision and his high octane fighting style has made him a fan favorite up and down the eastern seaboard. Stallings has only had 2 fights go to decision in his career and he will be looking to get into a shootout with Williams from the get go. Look for Stallings to stand his ground and try to get Williams in a barnburner.
The CFFC Heavyweight Title will be on the line as Champion Azunna “Zu” Anyanwu (7-2) defends the belt against Bellator and M-1 vet Plinio Cruz (6-5) Zu can match anyone on the East Coast punch for punch and this title fight was made with that idea in mind. Zu is a compact fighter who also brings a solid grappling game into the cage having tapped out 3 opponents already to go along with his 3 KOs. Cruz is a rugged fighter from New Jersey and a grinder who likes to outwork and out hustle his opponent in the cage. Cruz sets a high pace for a heavyweight and wears down his opponent over the course of a full fight while building a lead up on the judges’ score cards. Cruz will need to evade the power punching of Anyanwu early and often and try to outwork the bigger man in the championship rounds.
In other action, Bellator and WSOF vet Jimmie Rivera (14-1) takes on Anthony Durnell (11-3). Rivera is a top 20 bantamweight and looks to make it a short night for Durnell. Rivera, a Bellator and TUF vet has faced a who’s who of the East Coast’s best and is riding a 13-fight win steak. Rivera will look to utilize his strong wrestling base to nullify Durnell’s attacks. Durnell comes out of Pennsylvania where he dominated the region. This will be his debut fight in CFFC and he is expecting big things as he looks towards a future title shot. A victory over Rivera would do just that. Durnell is relentless in the cage, and mirrors Rivera’s fighting style in that both fighters are strong wrestlers who never get tired and like to push the pace.
Be there to witness who climbs up the ladder and who is hurled off it as “CFFC 43” throws down the gauntlet on Comcast once again! Watch all the top stars of the Northeast bring their fists and hearts into the cage and fight like modern day Spartans!
