Cage Fury Fighting Championships brings championship MMA to Atlantic City, New Jersey on April 26 with "CFFC 35". Pro MMA fighters from around the East Coast will compete on this stacked card featuring a title fight in the main event. CFFC has expanded their stranglehold on Northeast MMA as they continue to pump out one blockbuster show after another.
In the main event, CFFC Featherweight Champion Scott Heckman (17-4) defends his title against the undefeated Levan Makashvili (7-0). Heckman is an expert grappler with a strong wrestling base, but also likes to throw hands and is dangerous from anywhere in the cage. He is one of the top 145 lb fighters in the world and will continue to come forward no matter what. Heckman is as exciting as they come, and that is why he continues to be a fan favorite wherever he fights. Makashvili is a knockout specialist with an astounding 4 KOs in 7 fights. Makashvili loves to bang and he can end a fight with one punch from either hand. Look for these two to collide in the center of the cage with explosive consequences. Hands will be flying and these two are bound to blow the roof off with their style of fighting.
In the co-main event, Mike Winters (7-3) takes on Jonavin Webb (5-0) in a welterweight tussle. Winters has dominated former opponents with his well-rounded striking mixed with impressive takedowns that keep his opponents on the defensive. Once on the ground, Winters is very active, advancing his position, landing strikes and pushing the pace. Webb is a blue chip prospect from New Jersey and has never tasted defeat in either his pro or amateur career as a mixed martial artist. Webb is a submission specialist and if the fight hits the mat he will be comfortable in any position the fight goes. Look for Webb to try and outwrestle Winters in the early going and get the fight to the ground where he can work his grappling game.
In other action, Jimmie Rivera (12-1) fights Cody "The Wolverine" Stevens (11-6-1). Rivera, a Bellator and TUF vet has faced a who's who of the East Coast's best, is on a 4 fight win steak. Rivera will look to utilize his strong wrestling base to nullify Stevens' attacks. Stevens' last fight was in Japan for the top organization in Asia, ONE Fighting. Stevens returns to the United States ready to raise his stock on his home soil. A victory over Rivera would do just that. Stevens is relentless in the cage, and mirrors Rivera's fighting style in that both fighters are strong wrestlers who never get tired and like to push the pace. Look for Stevens to try and score with some ground and pound if the fight hits the mat and he is on top. This fight could main event most cards on the regional level so fans are in for a treat.
