Two Undefeated Fighters Face-off on Saturday
The FCFF has three outstanding Championship fights on the card for "Rumble @ The Roseland 87!" We predict the 135-pound Bantamweight Title could steal "fight of the night" honors away from the 145-pound "Main Event" match-up featuring Cris Williams, the FCFF's 2016 Fighter-to-Watch who is attempting a perfect run to the FCFF Championship. WHY do we think this?
The two warriors facing off for the 135-pound belt are undefeated. Tristan Lindi of Rogue Combat Academy is 4-0. Ryen Betzhold of Animals MMA is also 4-0. Someone will lose their undefeated status - to a fighter this means everything.
Lindi enters the FCFF's "Slammer" for the first time on Saturday, May 14th. He last fought in January 2016 at "Rogue Fights 33" against Joey McKernan for their Championship belt and won via the judges decision victory. Previous to this Title fight he faced Samuel Crawford at "Battle In The Burg II" and won via a round two submission. Betzhold last fought at the 'Apocalypse in the Cage II' event in September of 2015 claiming victory over his opponent with a standing rear naked choke in the first round! Previous to this fight he competed at FCFF's "Rumble @ The Roseland 83" event in August of 2015. There he took on Tim Devore and won via a three round battle via judges decision. Fight fans know how intense it can be when two top-level fighters with undefeated records face-off. This fight is going to be explosive!
Ryan Betzhold tries to secure an armbar over Tim Devore at Rumble 83. He goes onto win.
