Sean "Shorty Rock" Santella


Sean "Shorty Rock" returned to his spot at the top of the flyweight division with a huge win over Matt "SMG" Lozano at CFFC 62 on December 17 to reclaim his flyweight crown.


Sean Santella has been a longtime staple in the east coast flywegiht division, fighting the "who's who" of the sport. Santella won the CFFC Flyweight title at CFFC 62 when he defeated Matt Lozano via rear-naked choke.

Shorty trains out of Ricardo Almeida BJJ, Nick Catone MMA, and Miller Brothers MMA making him a true jersey boy. His trademark hot pink mohawk has inspired his fans to rock the color in support at every event. Santella is best known for his smothering ground game, which he frequently uses to put away opponents on the mat. His skills were on full display at V3Fights 62 where he became a two-promotion Alliance MMA Champion by defeating Larry Digiulio by rear-naked choke.
