Aljamain Sterling returns home to CFFC Former CFFC Bantamweight Champion Aljamain Sterling returns home to CFFC   The usual voices heard during the broadcast at Cage Fury on CBS Sports are none other then UFC’s Paul Felder and the talented Brian Palakow.

If both fighters bring their A-game, then this will be fight of the night.” A veteran of Bellator, Jeff Lentz has composed a 10-5-1 record and has faced the toughest competition...

CFFC Exclusive: NJSACB to Analyze Judging Experiment at CFFC 52 This Halloween! At the forefront of mixed-martial-arts (MMA), the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (NJSACB) is taking another innovative approach when they plan to analyze MMA judging at the next Cage Fury Fighting Championship’s (CFFC) event this Halloween at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Credited with the creation of the “Unified Rules” of MMA used across the country, the NJSACB hopes that this new experiment will further the growth of MMA worldwide.

By no means is this a knock on the current judges licensed by the NJSACB. “This agency has been pleased with both the quality of judging and our...
