CFFC (Cage Fury Fighting Championships) is one of the top MMA promotions on the East Coast. They have held events in Delaware, Atlantic City, and even King of Prussia right near Philadelphia. CFFC is coming back to the Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia, PA on Saturday, February 22nd, 2014. The main event for CFFC 32 is going to be two undefeated fighters facing off against each other when Jordan Stiner (6-0) takes on Levan Makashvili (2-0). The co-main event will be for the vacant CFFC Heavyweight Championship, and it's between two of the top Heavyweights on the East Coast when "Bazooka" Joe Stripling steps in the cage against "The 8th Wonder of the World" Zu Anyanwu.
Stiner has been very impressive in his young MMA career thus far, going undefeated and finishing four of his six opponents. Stiner has faced and beaten the likes of Kenny Rivera, Ahsan Abdullah, and Donald Ooton (who recently just picked up an impressive first round TKO victory over Anthony Terrell). Makashvili is a Ring of Combat veteran, and has a record of 2-0, with his most recent victory coming by way of 2nd Round Knockout. Both men step inside the cage on February 22nd undefeated, but only one will still be able to say that once they leave the cage.
Joe Stripling holds a Pro MMA record of 8-5. Stripling is a LITC veteran and a CFFC veteran, and has won 6 of his last 8 fights. "Bazooka" Joe Stripling's last fight took place at CFFC 27: Heckman vs. Kelleher in September 2013, where he defeated Bellator MMA veteran J.A. Dudley via 3rd Round TKO. Stripling is going to face former LITC, Bellator MMA, and Matrix Fights veteran Zu Anyanwu. When asked about his upcoming fight with Anyanwu, Stripling had this to say:
"It's an honor to fight for the CFFC Title again. Last time I fought for the title, it was on short notice and I was coming off just having a staph infection. This time I get a full training camp. My opponent is a good brawler with heavy hitting KO power. He is a former teammate. We trained together 2-3 times a week for HIS fights to get him ready, never my fights. I am looking forward to putting on a good show against someone I respect, but dislike. For this fight, I predict a three round beating with me coming out the victor with a third round TKO due to strikes. I am training as usual. I never really break my cycle of training with my teams, but this time I'm just bringing in some Heavyweights and UFC fighters to train with."
Azunna "Zu" Anyanwu is a Pro MMA Heavyweight and has a record of 5-2. He calls himself "The 8th Wonder of the World", and he's put on some impressive performances in his career so far. Anyanwu started his career 4-0, even earning himself a TKO victory in Bellator MMA, before losing two in a row in the local MMA scene. Anyanwu bounced back with an absolute brawl between himself and Paul Holt at CFFC 29 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort back in November 2013. When asked about his upcoming fight with Stripling, Zu had this to say:
"The CFFC Heavyweight belt is a top title to have in the area. The sky is the limit when you have that belt around your waist. He's [Stripling] a good fighter. That is all. I predict I'll win. It's my time. I have a great team behind me in Judo Movement and Renzo Gracie Philly. I'm confident I will get the job done. No one will take this away from me."
