Portland, OR – On Saturday, April 5th the Full Contact Fighting Federation will host an explosive event featuring a 115-pound pro “Fight Main” event, a Champion-versus-Champion Title fight and David Converse will have his chance at setting FCFF history! And, finally, the BIG BOYS will BRAWL in a Heavyweight Superfight – DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT!
THE APRIL 5TH LINE UP:
The FCFF’s Main Event will pack-the-house as Glena Avila and her fan following (called #Teamheartless) will return to “The Slammer” to face Katie Howard. Howard, a familiar face in the FCFF, has fought eight times since 2012, taking home one FCFF Championship belt. She turned pro in early 2014 and has one win via judges’ decision against Miriam Cerqueira at CageSport XXIX. While Avila’s 2-2 pro record isn’t outstanding on paper, her two pro losses came from the very best in that Nation. It’s tough for her to find someone willing to face her in the cage.

Avila was the FCFF’s undefeated, undisputed women’s Champion – holding three FCFF Championship belts before she turned pro. Recently, Avila was in Park City, Utah for her documentary film debut at the Slamdance Film Festival. Her documentary, titled: “Glena: The Movie” was the result of Allan Luebke filming the fighter for almost two years. What started as a “fighting” movie turned into a story of struggle to fulfill a dream.
Katie Howard lands a punch on Kyra Batara when they were both amateurs. They are both pros now with 1-0 records.
For the FCFF’s 145-pound Featherweight Championship David Converse and Jess Moore will face-off for the vacant belt. This is a truly significant fight as Converse already holds the FCFF’s 125-pound and 135-pound Championship Titles from back-to-back FCFF events. If Converse earns the 145-pound belt on Saturday, April 5thhe will become the first ever fighter to win three consecutive FCFF Title Belts, in three different weight class divisions.
On Saturday, April 5th the 185-pound Champion will come down in weight to face the 170-pound Champion in a “Champion Verses Champion Showdown” at Rumble @ The Roseland 77! Rod Jaques, the FCFF’s 185-pound Middleweight Champion earned his Title at Rumble @ The Roseland 73; when he defeated Jake Smith via judges’ decision. Since earning this belt he’s earned a second Championship title at a United Combat event with a win over Cameron Ericson via TKO. Now, Jaques’s sights are set on Daniel Dieringer’s newly acquired FCFF 170-pound Welterweight belt. This will be Dieringer first title defense attempt since his win over Scott Baker at Rumble @ The Roseland 76 in January.

The final belt fight on the card at Rumble @ The Roseland 77 is the Heavyweight Superfight. The current FCFF Super Heavyweight Champion, Casey Lunzman will come down in weight to face Rudy Schraffroth from Team Quest. Schaffroth’s last fight was in January at Rumble @ The Roseland 76. There he defeated former FCFF Heavyweight Champion Scot Davenport via an impressive round one TKO. Lunzman last defended his Super Heavyweight Title at Rumble @ The Roseland 75 in December of 2013 against Nathan Milsap. He defended his belt with a 18 second knockout in round one.
