A Philadelphia transplant originally from Ukraine, Anton Berzin is the first ever CFFC light heavyweight champion. He captured the belt by defeating Jamelle Jones via TKO at CFFC 65. Berzin is a member of Balance Studios in Philly, and a veteran of season 19 of The Ultimate Fighter as a member of Team B.J. Penn.
Berzin is a well-rounded fighter that refuses to be labeled with a specific style. Known as “The Body Snatcher,” Berzin holds a professional record or 5-1 with all of his victories coming by way of either knockout or submission. Simply put, Anton Berzin is a finisher. After a long layoff between 2012 and 2016 due to difficulty getting fights, Berzin has returned with two straight wins over the last year. A combatant under Cage Fury since CFFC 15, Berzin is looking to use his new gold strap to catapult him towards his second chance with the UFC.
