Cage Fury Fighting Championships is thrilled to announce we will be returning to the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA for CFFC 65 on May 20th!
The already stacked card will feature THREE TITLE FIGHT... Lightweight champion Mike Pope will make his first title defense against Joe Lowry, Anton Berzin is fighting Jamelle Jones for the inaugural light heavyweight title, and Sean Brady will face Tanner Saraceno for the vacant welterweight title.
Mike Pope returns to the same place where he won his lightweight title. This time around, the crafty veteran Pope can expect to be in enemy territory as Philadelphia's Joe Lowry is ready to put on for his city with an army of Union brothers behind him.
Anton Berzin is another transplant in the 205, and he is looking to earn gold after making a very successful return to MMA in 2016. Dover, Delaware's Jamelle Jones stands in his way however. The very first 205lb title fight in Cage Fury history is a classic matchup between a high level Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt in Berzin and a powerful wrestler in Jones. Often times fights between two supreme grapplers turn into slug fests and this one could end up no different.
In the main event of the evening, perhaps the most beloved "Phighter" in regional MMA today, Sean Brady will finally get his chance at the 170-title after being denied that opportunity due to an injury that kept him out of CFFC 62. Across the cage from Brady will be WWE's "Tough Enough" contestant and CFFC 63 winner Tanner "The Hammer" Saraceno. Tanner put on a show for Cage Fury fans and Dana White with a slick heel hook win over Matt Socholotiuk at the Borgata on February 18th. Now he takes a big step up in competition against a highly touted prospect in Brady.
There you have it folks, three title fights featuring three of Philly's best! CFFC 65 has the potential to be another record breaking night for Cage Fury so order your tickets ASAP before they're all gone! With less seats then the Borgata - this show is guaranteed to sell out!
Philadelphia are you ready?! May 20th, 2300 Arena, see you there!
Keep a look out for full fight card announcement coming very soon!
