Mick Hammond, February 28, 2015, MMA Weekly

Middleweight Anthony “Lionheart” Smith’s exposure to most fans came from his appearances in the Strikeforce Challenger series in 2011. Since then Smith has had his shares of highs and lows, and following three straight losses in 2013, he knew changes were needed.

“You don’t know what you don’t know until you learn it,” Smith told MMAWeekly.com. “I didn’t realize what I was missing coaching-wise and training-wise. I’d been doing the same thing for so long that I kind of got into this rut and went on that losing streak.”

Smith changed gyms and has since gone on to win three fights in a row in 2014.

Smith (20-11) will look to keep his winning streak going as he takes on top middleweight prospect Tim Williams (10-1) at CFFC 46 in Chester, Penn., on Saturday night.

CFFC 46: Anthony Smith Warns Tim Williams Fighting The UFC Vet is a “Whole Different World”

Tim Williams has been drawing praise as a middleweight on the rise, but Anthony Smith believes the CFFC champ is in for a rude awakening, when the two fight Saturday night. While Williams has turned heads by posting a 10-1 record, Smith believes the New Jersey fighter hasn’t faced the level of competition he’s battled, while competing for the UFC, Strikeforce and Bellator.

“I know he was on “The Ultimate Fighter”, but I know he doesn’t have those big show fights. It’s a whole different kind of thing”, Smith relayed on a recent episode of Full Contact Fighter Radio. “I don’t think he’s ever fought someone with the type of intensity that I bring to the table…It may be in his home in his home area, and kind of his home show, but when I’m in the cage it’s a whole different world, and anyone I’ve ever fought, win or lose, will tell you that….”

CFFC 46 will be hosted by Harrah’s Casino in in Chester, Pennsylvania, and you can catch the card via Go Fight Live.

How to survive double brain surgery and still get punched in the head for a living

February 27, 2015 by · Leave a Comment

Let’s get this out of the way upfront: mixed martial arts saved Tim Williams’ life, though not in the cliché way you’d expect. The love of sport didn’t rescue Williams from the throes of a needle. Beelzebub wasn’t scurried off by some supreme revelation on the mat. Instead, the heroics fell to something much more banal. A simple CT scan, required by New Jersey state law before Williams’ pro debut against an untested northeastern kid named Chris Weidman, the kind of procedure that’s more chore than errand until the one-in-a-million time it matters most.

But then again, Williams has always been a one-in-a-million type guy.

“The CT scan showed up that I had a brain aneurysm,” Williams says. “So the fight was off and I had to go get surgery for my brain aneurysm.”

In a way, it’s a curious irony that of all the second chances Williams had the fortune of receiving in his life, the one he now wants the most is also the most elusive — the shot at lacing up those UFC gloves for real that’s generally extended to most TUF alumni as a courtesy for shacking up with 16 smelly dudes for six weeks. But Williams is close, he believes, and on Saturday he’ll defend his middleweight title at CFFC 46 on GFL.tv.

GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents TFC 3 Beginning March 2 on Comcast TCN, CSN, Dish, DirecTV, U-Verse and FiOS

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN), COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN), DISH, DIRECTV, AT&T U-VERSE AND VERIZON FIOS
GFL PRESENTS “TEAM FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP 3” BEGINNING MARCH 2

February 27, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as TFC presents another show stopper with Team Fighting Championship 3 featuring a full lineup of countries competing in 5 on 5 team MMA in one giant ring. The reality of fighting changed forever in 1993 with the inaugural UFC event. TFC showed that in a team setting, many times with uneven odds, many of the styles and techniques that work well in traditional MMA are not effective and can actually put you at a disadvantage.

Teams scheduled to compete are from Poland, Russian, Brazil, UK, USA and Latvia. The early favorites are, returning champions Poland, and the USA and Latvia who have challenged for the title in previous events, with Russia being the wildcard and having the fire power to pull off the victory. If you haven’t witnessed team fighting MMA, you are in for a treat. Nothing can prepare you for this sport and spectacle.

James Jefferson was tentative the first time he saw Team Fighting Championship. It was kind of like MMA, except there were 10 men in a ring and they were all fighting each other at once.

“I cringed,” Jefferson told MMAFighting.com. “Until I really experienced it, watched all the film, watched how they ran it, I was hesitant.”

“It’s a group fight,” Jefferson said. “It’s a gang fight. It’s more or less a barroom brawl without the bottles.”

TFC adheres to the unified rules of mixed martial arts for the most part. But it is done elimination style. When a fighter taps or gets knocked out, he is out and his team is down a man. That can lead to 2-on-1 or 3-on-1 — or worse — situations. There are instances where an athlete can get caught in a chokehold and kicked in the face at the same time.

A five-man team cannot exceed a combined weight of 500 kilograms (or just over 1,102 pounds). That’s an average of about 220 pounds per fighter. The format is round-robin tournament-based, so teams will be competing multiple times in one day.

TFC is illegal in the United States and most other countries with sanctioning bodies.

Is this too violent? Jefferson acknowledges “there is a greater danger level” than typical MMA. But he also doesn’t think something like this should be banned.

“You could get injured in a car accident,” he said. “These are professional athletes. They’re trained, they’re skilled.”
Team Fighting Championship is held in a 30,000 square-foot arena that is completely empty. The display is meant for television viewers only. The fight takes place in a 40 by 40 ring with five referees.
Air times are listed below:

The Comcast Network: (all zones): Monday, March 2 at 7:00pm ET
The Comcast Network: (Philly): Sunday, March 8 at 2:30pm ET
The Comcast Network: (Mid Atlantic): Sunday, March 8 at 3:00pm ET

Fight Path: Cameron Crawford, the son of a car-selling magician in North Pole, Alaska

When Cameron Crawford was in the seventh grade, he was tiny, not much more than 70 pounds. He had been small since birth, when he came into the world with multiple drugs in his system before the state took him away from a mother he never met.

Despite his size, he was a good motocross racer, and he wanted a way to stay in shape for that sport. So he got involved in wrestling as a middle-schooler while hoping to translate the scrappy nature that saw him hold his own in scuffles to a more organized sport.

“I think most people thought they would have no problem picking on me because of how big I was,” Crawford told MMAjunkie. “I didn’t make it that easy for them.”

Timmy “the South Jersey Strangler” Williams’ First Title Defense Highlights CFFC 46!

February 25, 2015 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Article, MMA News, Press Release, Upcoming Events 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Atlantic City, NJ – On Saturday February 28, 2015, Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) returns to the great state of Pennsylvania when Timmy “the South Jersey Strangler” Williams (10-1) defends his middleweight title against veteran Anthony “Lionheart” Smith (20-10) from the Harrah’s Casino in Chester.

In his last bout, the Millville native punctuated his early career by winning the CFFC middleweight title against Ronald Stallings, who was recently added to the UFC roster, with a unanimous decision victory in November 2014. A decision is something new for Williams as nine out of his ten victories have come via stoppage. “Being the CFFC Champion is a great honor and holding that belt means something to me, my team and my fans,” stated Williams. “They say you are not a true champion until you defend the belt. I’m excited about the opportunity ahead and I am coming for a finish.”

“Timmy is one of, if not the toughest fighter in CFFC right now,” stated CFFC CEO Robert Haydak Jr. “He’s a guy that wants nothing but fights that will test him and make him better. I think this has fight of the year potential and I can’t want to see it unfold.”

In regard to his opponent, Williams is all business. “I am very excited to be able to have my first CFFC middleweight title defense against a solid opponent like Anthony Smith,” stated that champion. “Anthony has fought all over the country and has faced some top competition. This fight will be a great test and I look forward to putting on a great show.”

On the other side of the cage next Saturday will be 30 fight veteran, Anthony “Lionheart” Smith. Competing successfully in organizations like UFC, Strikeforce, and Bellator, Smith has grown confident of his skills and appears that he knows the platform CFFC can provide. “I’m real excited to have the chance to fight for CFFC,” said the challenger. “CFFC is such a quality organization with a reputation as a premier regional show with waves of talent going through it. Important eyes are watching this show and I’m excited to be able to perform for the fans. I’ve been to the east coast a few times and have enjoyed it each time. Good people and I really enjoy fighting on the road. ”

When Smith was asked about his opponent, his answer was quite surprising. “I know absolutely nothing about my opponent,” continued Smith. “Don’t even know what he looks like. Name sounds somewhat familiar maybe, but it’s a pretty generic name. It’s a title fight. I’m sure he’s tough and will be prepared. I don’t research my opponent that is up to my coaches. It will be an honor to become the next CFFC Champion.”

“I think Anthony is will be Timmy’s toughest fight to date,” continued Haydak. “He’s very confident and has faced some of the toughest competition the sport has to offer. He’s been on our radar for a while and I’m glad to add him to the CFFC roster and give him a title fight right away.”

CFFC 46 will also feature an anticipated lightweight bout between two local powerhouses when Joe Lowry (1-0) makes his second CFFC appearance when he takes on the dangerous Allen Otto (1-1) who is coming off a knockout victory. Both men have found a home with CFFC and a victory here gets someone closer to title contention. This event will also mark the professional debut of Jon Forster, the return of Andrew Aguilar, and amateur bouts represented by the top schools in the area.

In the last hour before the fight starts, Elder Ramos travels back in time.

He does this before every fight, just as he’ll do it before his fight Saturday against fellow welterweight Derrick Kennington at Strike Off FC in Annandale, Va. (GFL.tv, 6:30 pm ET).

“The truck came around the corner and stopped just like it was a taxi or something, dropping someone off,” Ramos told MMAjunkie. “They got out and cut a rope off the back of the car, and you could see a trash bag over someone’s face. All you could see was the rope, the trash bag, and the body. I recognized it was my brother right away because of the jersey.”

Fight Path: From ‘The Sandlot’ to Marines to Peru to pro MMA for Martin Davila

By: MMAjunkie Staff February 19, 2015

Martin Davila had already described his mother’s deportation to Peru, his enlistment in the Marines to find guidance in his life (and avoid being kicked out of his father’s house), his time in Iraq, and his time in South Korea.

His biggest laugh during the conversation came when he was asked about the start of his amateur MMA career.

“Only me,” Davila told MMAjunkie. “It’s so funny.”

The joke is this: Davila prepared for his first two amateur MMA fights while he was out in the field training with his Marines unit. He was cutting weight in the final week by bringing his own food and doing extra workouts after his unit finished its brutal tactical work for the day.

It was a tough way to start a career, but Davila has made the most out of it. After an impressive amateur career and an eight-year career serving his country in the Marines, the flyweight is 1-0 as an MMA pro. He’s now set to face Huiber Garcia Huerta (0-0) on Saturday at “Strike Off 4” while hoping to capitalize off an impressive pro debut this past May.

“I’m excited because my mom can watch the fight (on Go Fight Live, gfl.tv),” he said. “And so can my other friends and family, so that makes me happy. I’m feeling great, and I’m ready”

JASON SOSA: HE’S READY TO RESUME HIS ATTACK ON THE 130-POUND DIVISION

February 18, 2015 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Article, Boxing News, Press Release, Upcoming Events 

Philadelphia, PA-When Jason Sosa leveled Michael “Lefty” Brooks in the ninth round of their main event last April 12 at Bally’s Atlantic City, he appeared to be one of the brightest prospects in the junior lightweight division.
His 12-1-3 record included seven consecutive knockouts and he earned a No. 1 ranking with the USBA. Next up for Sosa was a spot in front of the HBO brass on the Aug. 2 undercard of Sergey Kovalev’s WBO light-heavyweight title defense against Blake Caparello at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City.
But like the Revel Resort, Sosa (above) faded from view.
Now, as he prepares to take on Bergman Aguilar, of Escazu, Costa Rica, in the eight-round main event on March 6 at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia, Sosa reflects on his disappearing act in 2014.
“After the Brooks fight, I had to put my boxing career on hold,” Sosa said. “There were contractual interferences that have since been resolved. Unfortunately, there are two different sides in boxing and I had to take care of the business part. I signed with a new manager, Mark Cipparone of Club 1957 Management, and, since then, it has been great.”
In the fall, Sosa was in line to box world-rated Edner Cherry, of Wachula, FL, at the 2300 Arena and the fight was to be televised over the NBC Sports Network. However, Sosa and Cipparone did not feel the timing was right and the fight never materialized.
Sosa did manage one more fight in 2014, traveling to Catano, Puerto Rico, in October where he knocked out Juan G. Cruz in two rounds. It was the first time Sosa had boxed someone with a losing record since his second pro fight in 2010.
A pro since 2009, Sosa has lost just once. That came late in 2010 when he accepted a fight on 48 hours notice against Treysean Wiggins, a hard hitter from New York who was two weight classes above Sosa. Needing the money but eight pounds over his best fighting weight, Sosa was stopped in the first round of a scheduled six-rounder at Bally’s. It was a fight that never should have happened.
Sosa stayed out of the ring for 13 months, but came back strong with trainer Raul “Chino” Rivas in his corner. He has not lost since, winning 10 fights, the last eight by knockout, and boxing a pair of disputed draws with Angel Luis Ocasio, of Philadelphia, PA.
Hoping to use a win over Aguilar on March 6 as a stepping stone to a world ranking, the 25-year-old Sosa, of Camden, NJ, is primed for a big year in 2015.
A potential fight with lightweight Ivan Redkach on ShoBox was “on the table” for the first week in January, but when Redkach’s camp failed to respond in time, the fight was scrapped. When Redkach’s people finally agreed, Sosa had stopped training.
Sosa vows things will be different.
“I’m looking forward to getting right back where I left off in the ring,” he said. “My last eight fights have ended in knockouts and on March 6 I will keep the streak going.
“I am re-focused and recharged and my career is back on the fast track. I’m excited for what my promoter (J Russell Peltz) has in store for me and my career in the near future.”
Aguilar, 30, now living in Puerto Rico, is 12-1-1, 4 K0s. He has not lost since his fifth pro fight in 2008.
In his last match April 4, 2014, in Panama City, Panama, Aguilar earned an 11-round decision (correct, 11 rounds) over previously unbeaten Juan Huertas, of Panama, for the WBA Fedalatin junior lightweight title.
The March 6 fight will be Aguilar’s first in the United States.
