Make that three title fights!
Cage Fury's 135lb Champion Nick Pace is set to make his first title defense against Ahmet "The Turk" Kayretli at CFFC 63 on February 18th at the Borgata Hotel Spa & Casino.
Nick Pace won the vacant title at CFFC 52 when he defeated Ricky Bandejas via first round submission (RNC). Now Pace needs to prove he is a true champion by defending his strap against a very tough opponent.
Nick Pace burst onto the MMA scene by winning his first five professional fights in respected promotions like WEC, Bellator, and Ring of Combat. From there, he made it onto the Ultimate Fighter season 12 finale card. After a submission victory over Will Campuzano, Pace was given his chance in the sport's highest level of competition. His success in the UFC varied, but one thing was always certain, Nick Pace is a daunting opponent for anyone that steps into the cage with him. Pace's submission game is on another level and his experience fighting guys like Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson and Miguel Torres makes fighting at CFFC 63 just another day at the office.
Pace's opponent Ahmet Kayretli is currently ranked #2 in Tapology.com's Virginia Bantamweight rankings. "The Turk" holds an impressive record of 6-1 with four finishes, including a vicious knockout win at Shogun Fights 11. Kayretli has thunderous power in all four limbs, and he uses unique techniques and strategy to score knockouts. He is not afraid have fun in the cage and his colorful personality should make for a fantastic showing at CFFC 63. Look for Kayretli to try and frustrate Pace and keep the fight standing come February 18th.
