BANTAMWEIGHT (135lbs) CHAMPION
Nick Pace is a very talented fighter who has been in the cage with some legends of the sport including Demetrious Johnson. Pace captured the CFFC bantamweight title by defeating Ricky Bandejas via choke at CFFC 52. He made his first title defense against Ahmet Kayretli at CFFC 63, winning by submission after an absolute war in front of the Dana White "Lookin' for a Fight" crew.
He is a Tiger Shulman New York product that trains with guys like Jimmie Rivera, Shane Burgos, Lyman Good and Louis Gaudinot on a regular basis. Pace’s innovative jiu-jitsu was on display when he choked out Will Campuzano at the TUF 12 finale with a modified triangle that went on to be coined “The Pace choke.”
Nick Pace was recently featured on Eddie Bravo's "Combat Jiu-Jitsu Worlds" where he defeated fellow CFFC vet and former Champion Nick Honstein in the first round.
