HEAVYWEIGHT (265lbs) CHAMPION
One of CFFC’s perennial heavyweight stars is Azunna Anyanwu. “Zu” holds a 13-4 professional record with 7 KO’s and 2 Submissions. He fights out of MPR MMA. He is a 3-time CFFC heavyweight champ, and has headlined several CFFC events. Zu has brutal knockout power in his hands, and he prefers to use his striking rather than his BJJ, which is very solid in it’s own right.
He has wins over Plinio Cruz and Keith Bell, and most recently Greg Rebello at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. His personality is a mix between scary and hilarious much like Derek Lewis. His age (35) gives him that grown man strength that overpowered many fighters on the regional circuit. In September of 2017, Anyanwu got his call up to the UFC and signed a multi-fight deal with the sport’s premier organization.
