In his last two fights, Jon Delbrugge has won two different regional titles. In his next fight at Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) 60, Delbrugge hopes to put himself in a position to add a third title to his resume when he takes on Mike Wilkins on Saturday August 6, 2016 at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey in his CFFC return.
“I'm coming back to CFFC for a reasons,” stated Delbrugge. “Biggest reason is because it's one of the nation's top organizations that the UFC has their eyes on. It's also a good opportunity to fight the exact style or opponent we are looking for. I've fought for CFFC in the past and I enjoyed it. I'm a different fighter now and I'll be looking to make a statement.”
“Delbrugge is clearly a well rounded fighter who has an excellent ground game,” stated CFFC CEO Robert Haydak Jr. “He has been tearing up the regional scene as of late. However, he's got a huge test in front of him when he faces Wilkins. Should he continue his winning ways, the CFFC lightweight title fight will be next."
In this fight, Delbrugge (9-2, 2-2 CFFC) will be going back to the lightweight division despite the success at welterweight. “My last fight I won the 170-pound championship for Shogun Fights,” continued Delbrugge. “I enjoyed that fight and the entire process leading up to it. My team and I changed a lot of things in my preparation and it paid off. The fight went exactly how we thought it would go. I like going up to 170 and putting beatings on bigger guys.”
On August 6, Delbrugge will be fighting Mike Wilkins (6-2, 1-0 CFFC) who impressed many with his dominant performance over Stephen Regman, a fight he took on less than a week's notice. “My opponent is a tough, battle tested ex-collegiate wrestler, and a southpaw,” stated the Maryland native. “I can't wait to fight. I honestly wholeheartedly have been wanting to get back in there against a tough wrestler, and here he is. Coming off a big short notice win, he has momentum. I'm coming into this fight with zero fucks to give. I'm focused and I am ready. I'm winning this fight by any means necessary. I'll die if I have to. I'm not doing this to be a local star and to tell everyone I'm a fighter. I cannot and will not lose. My prediction is that another “W” will go onto my resume.”
The Lloyd Irvin protégé is confident going into next Saturday’s event and might be sticking around if he beats Wilkins to complete the hat trick. “The 155 CFFC title is a prestigious piece of hardware. I'm for sure looking to add it to my collection.”
"I love it when two high level grapplers enter the CFFC cage,” concluded Haydak. “It usually ends up in a brawl. I hope this one is no different."
