Showdown Fights – Justin Buchholz vs Gordon Bell
Fri May 10 7:30PM ET
Showdown Fights, the top MMA organization in Utah, presents another night of exciting fights with SHOWDOWN FIGHTS XI – Buchholz VS Bell on Friday May 10. The 8-bout event is highlighted by a Lightweight Title fight and all of the action comes to you live from the UCCU Center in Orem, Utah. Utah MMA has flown under the radar for over a decade, but Showdown Fights has proven to be in a class of its own for MMA in the Mountain West.
In the main event, with the Showdown Fights Lightweight Title on the line, Champion Justin Buchholz (14-7) defends his belt for the first time against Gordon Bell (8-1). Buchholz won the title after an impressive TKO victory in November 2012 that had everyone on their feet by the end. Buchholz is one of the most exciting fighters in the 155 lb division and as a UFC veteran, Buchholz garners a following wherever he goes. Buchholz is well-rounded and has shown a ton of heart inside the cage and trains out of the world renowned Team Alpha Male camp in Sacramento. Buchholz is a solid grappler with multiple submissions to his credit, but also has a dangerous standup game and a gas tank that won’t stop. Bell comes into the fight having previously fought in heavier weight divisions and should bring a strength advantage into the cage. Bell is a proven finisher as 7 of his 8 wins have come via KO or submission. This will be Bell’s first attempt at a title and he matches up well with Buchholz in this shootout as Bell can finish a fight at any moment. Both fighters have a lot at stake and are looking to cement their status as top 155 lb fighters. The winner of this bout will do just that and more importantly, walk out of the cage with championship gold.
Also in action, the heavyweights slug it out as Jan Jorgensen (4-0) fights Kip Ramos (5-1) in a barnburner. Jorgensen has proven to be almost unstoppable in his MMA career, coming over from a successful run as a football player. Jorgensen has never been to the third round as he has finished all 4 opponents inside of two. Jorgensen is one of the most athletic big men in the sport and his speed and natural ability make him a formidable opponent for almost anyone. Look for Jorgensen to come out swinging from the opening bell. Ramos is almost a mirror of Jorgensen, as he too starts fast and all but one of his fights have ended in the first round. Ramos is coming down from Idaho, so the crowd will be against him, but that will only serve to motivate an athlete like Ramos who is looking to give the local fans a sour taste in their mouth by defeating Jorgensen for the first time in his career. This fight is almost guaranteed to not make it to a decision, and it could very easily end in the first round.
Showdown Fights is back with SHOWDOWN FIGHTS XI – Buchholz VS Bell. Watch all of the top fighters from the West compete in the premier proving ground in the region. Order now!For full fight card and more details about this event, visit gfl.tv or click here
CFFC XXIV: Sullivan vs Becker
Sat May 11 8:00PM ET
Atlantic City,NJ — On Saturday May 11, 2013, Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) returns to the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa with two title fights and the CFFC debut of former world champion Zach Makovsky. In the featured bout of the evening, George Sullivan (12-3) will look to successfully defend his CFFC welterweight title against wrestling phenom, Brandon Becker (6-0).In the co-main event, Sean “Shorty Rock” Santella (12-3-1) will defend his CFFC flyweight for the fourth consecutive time against a daunting challenger, Dave Morgan (5-2).
Sullivan, who has been riding high after his TKO victory over Ultimate Fighter veteran Julian Lane, is feeling confident going into this bout. Since joining CFFC in 2011, Sullivan has gone undefeated in four fights, with three of them being for the title. With a win here, he looks to defend his title for a long time. “I feel (CFFC) is the best organization around, I’m so pleased to be their champion,” continued Sullivan.
Becker knows he has his toughest test in his young career ahead of him, but will make the most of his opportunity. Originally from New Jersey, Becker moved to the mid-west and started his MMA career in Indiana. He has since came back to his roots and found his home organization. “Obviously CFFC is a great promotion. I would not have resigned with them if I had thought otherwise. I have fought for several others but none have been as well run and professional as CFFC.”
After losing his CFFC debut in October of 2011, Santella moved down to his natural weight class and has won four in a row. He feels as though he is on the cusp of the UFC and fighting is now strictly business. “I’m looking forward to the fight,” said Santella. “Dave Morgan is a strong wrestler and I feel like I can finish my opponent anywhere the fight goes. The CFFC flyweight belt is staying at AMA Fight Club.”
Fighting out of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Dave Morgan knows that he will have to bring his “A” game come on May 11th. “Fighting Santella is a huge opportunity,” said Morgan. “He’s top 15 in the world and to get where I want to go, I need to beat him. It’s an amazing opportunity. I’m coming to fight and take that belt and defend it as many times as it takes for the UFC to notice. CFFC is by far the best promotion on the east coast it is an honor to fight for such a prestigious title and promotion.”
Although he is known for his wrestling, Morgan states that we might be surprised when we see him fight for the title. “I’m working on some tricks and stuff that will end it early but I say the longer it goes the better it is for me.”
In another featured bout, former world champion, Zach Makovsky (14-4), will go down to his natural weight class to take on Claudio Ledesma (8-3) at his first venture in the flyweight division.
With a win here, Makovsky would propel himself as the number one contender for CFFC’s flyweight title and be one of the organization’s most prominent champions. Ledesma is coming off of two straight victories and is eager to prove himself against a fighter like Makovsky that could also land him in title contention.
CFFC 24 will also have solid veterans, local favorites and rising starts on the undercard including a match up of undefeated fighters when Paul Felder (4-0) takes on Corey Bleaken in a lightweight match up. Rising star, Jon Delbrugge (2-0), will put his undefeated record on the line when he takes on veteran Derrick Kennington (6-4). Robert Fabrizi (2-1) and Alfred Alo (0-1) will try to stop their losing streak at one when they face each other in lightweight battle. In the middleweight division, Mike Wilcox (2-2) will also try to rebound off a loss when he takes on Pennsylvania’s Eric Roncoroni (2-0). This card will also feature the return of Jonavin Webb (2-0) and Daniel Holmes (3-1).For full fight card and more details about this event, visit gfl.tv or click here
Havoc at the Civic Center
Sat May 11 7:30PM ET
Conflict MMA Promotions debuts on May 11 with Havoc at the Civic Center, an 18-bout card, emanating from the Civic Center in Savannah, Georgia. Havoc at the Civic Center promises to tear the house down as all the top fighters from the Dirty South will be squaring off in the cage in front of a rabid audience.
In the main event, Nick Smiley (5-2) battles Joseph Ray (2-0) for the Conflict MMA Heavyweight Championship. Smiley is on a 3-fight winning streak, all by first round stoppage, as his stock continues to rise on the regional scene. Smiley is a huge man standing 6’5″ and his high risk-high reward style of fighting has made him one of the most sought after heavyweights in the South. In 7 fights, Smiley has never been to the second round. Ray comes into the bout after having gone to a decision in both of his fights. Ray possesses great cardio and might look to take Smiley deep into the fight and test his stamina. Ray is also well versed in all aspects of MMA and is comfortable on the ground or in standup. Something has to give in this fight. Don’t blink as this will be a shootout with tons of fireworks.
In the co-main event, Lindsay Rowse (1-2) fights Jeremy Wallace (3-1) in a 195 lb catchweight bout. Rowse is a fast starter and is always in attack mode as he is constantly looking for a KO or submission if the fight hits the mat. Rowse is coming down from light heavyweight (205 lb) so he should be the naturally stronger fighter in the cage. Wallace is coming up from middleweight (185 lb) but will hold the reach advantage and likely the speed edge too. Wallace is explosive and can close the distance in a hurry. Look for these two to fight in a cloud of dust as there won’t be time for a breather.
Conflict MMA Promotions debuts with epic fighting in front of a worldwide audience courtesy of the GFL Combat Sports Network. Watch Havoc at the Civic Center on May 11.

Xtreme Combat – Battle in Plattsburgh 2
Sat May 11 7:00PM ET
Xtreme Combat Promotions returns to GFL on May 11 as it presents Battle in Plattsburgh 2 emanating from the Crete Civic Center in Plattsburgh, New York. MMA fans, this event is a stacked card featuring the top up and coming prospects inside the upper North East area. XCP is the premier MMA organization in the New England and now they have expanded their reach and are ready to put their stamp of high quality MMA on in the Empire State as one of GFL’s rising organizations.
In the main event, for the XCP bantamweight championship, it will be Andre Belcarris (5-3) taking on Shamel Tyler (5-0). Belcarris is on a 2-fight winning streak with both fights coming via TKO. Belcarris has proved to be a tough match up for most fighters because of his heavy hands and great cardio. With 4 of his 5 victories coming via stoppage, Belcarris is always coming forward in the cage looking to engage his opponent and finish the fight. The undefeated Tyler already has 2 titles to his credit and is looking for number 3. Tyler has only been to decision once in his career and has a well-rounded MMA game with solid submissions and wrestling mixed with effective striking that keeps his opponents off balance. Look for Tyler to mix up his attacks in this bout. The winner of this fight can not only lay claim to the XCP title, but also will be considered the top 135 lb amateur fighter in the upper Northeast.
In other action, Sam Salhany (2-0) battles Ian Beatease (4-3) in a lightweight scrap. Salhany is a grappling wizard and returns to XCP after winning his last fight in February by armbar. Salhany is just starting out his career so there are still questions to be answered about his striking and cardio. But if Salhany has his way, this will be another short night. Beatease comes into the fight with the experience edge and has his back against the wall looking to score his first win in 3 fights. Beatease is a former XCP Lightweight Champion and is determined to get back his crown as the top 155 lb fighter in the organization. That road begins here with his fight against Salhany.
You won’t find more BANG for your buck so order this thrilling event. Be sure to catch all of the action LIVE on May 11 as Xtreme Combat presents Battle in Plattsburgh 2 on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv.
