GFL PRESENTS “CFFC 45” BEGINNING FEBRUARY 23
February 20, 2015
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 45: Stiner VS Horcher featuring a full lineup of extreme cage fights emanating from the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa 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 anchored by a title fight in the lightweight division!
Cage Fury Fighting Championship (CFFC) will crown a new lightweight champion when Jordan Stiner (9-1) takes on Darrell Horcher (10-1) in the main event at CFFC 45. With a combined record of 19-2, this fight will also claim the current title of top lightweight prospect in the world as the last three CFFC lightweight champions, John Cholish, Charlie Brenneman and Paul Felder, have gone to the UFC.
Winning nine out of his first ten pro fights, Stiner heads into this contest with a lot of confidence. He is currently undefeated at lightweight and his only loss was a decision at 145-pounds to the current CFFC featherweight champion, Levan Makashvilli. After that loss, the Canton, Pennsylvania native has won three straight including a knockout victory over Mike Medrano. “My time is now to take the CFFC title,” stated Stiner. “Since moving up to lightweight, I feel like no one is going to be able to stop me from being champion. I was born to fight, this is my destiny. Horcher will be my toughest fight to date and I have nothing but respect for him as a fighter. I feel like we have been on a crash course to fight each other for some time now. We are the top two lightweights in the region and only one of us is going to be crowned. That being said, no one will stand in my way of taking the belt home. No one will want to miss this one, there will most definitely be fireworks!”
After shooting out of the gate with six stoppages in his first six fights, Horcher is putting together a more complete package as a fighter. Once known for just his knockouts, Horcher is showing other aspects of his game which includes wrestling and jiu-jitsu. Horcher has gone 3-0 since signing with CFFC and has his sights set out on CFFC gold since his promotional debut. “I want to thank CFFC for giving me an opportunity to fight for their lightweight title and to showcase my skills,” said Horcher. “Jordan Stiner is a very well rounded opponent. He’s won fights by both knockout and submission. I am excited to compete against Jordan, I think we will bring the best out in each other and put on a great fight for the fans. I approach every fight with the same game plan, to finish. That is my goal, impose my will on my opponent and fight for the finish. Fans won’t want to miss this fight, I’ve been traveling to train with some of the best in the world and I’m ready to show my skills and become CFFC Lightweight Champion.”
