NEW YORK – Alliance MMA, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMMA) company Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) announced today its first event at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.
“We couldn’t be happier to be bringing CFFC – the gold standard in regional MMA to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood. The groundwork we’ve laid in the northeast and world-class product we’ve built with Cage Fury is tailor-made for a red-hot TV market like Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. The show will be big, and the fights will be great – this I promise you,” said Alliance MMA Marketing Director Brad Boulton.
South Florida will play host to no less than three CFFC events in 2018. The first of which will take place on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in Hollywood, Fla. at the resort’s new Hard Rock Event Center. Tickets to CFFC 70 are on sale now via CFFC.tv and Ticketmaster.com.
“South Florida has always been a target for us at Alliance and now we’re here to deliver. The opportunity laid out with CFFC and Hard Rock is astonishing. Just like up north, we’re going to give the fans an experience like no other at the regional level while working towards our goal of launching prospects to the big show,” said Alliance MMA President Robert J. Haydak Jr. “It’s our pleasure to work with Hard Rock in Florida to allow us to do what we do.”
CFFC arrived on the regional mixed martial arts scene in 2006 with bright lights and huge events in Atlantic City. The early years featured many MMA greats such as Kimbo Slice, Dan Miller, Jim Miller, Nick Catone and others. Today, CFFC has established itself as the proving ground for the nation’s top prospects to launch their careers to the big show. Recent Cage Fury alum to graduate to the UFC include Paul Felder, Aljamain Sterling, Shane Burgos, Jared Gordon, Jimmie Rivera, Mickey Gall, and Katlyn Chookagian, among others.
