Richmond, VA: Fresh off a successful debut in Pennsylvania Friday night, Cage Fury Fighting Championship (CFFC) returns to the Richmond International Raceway (RIR) Saturday February 16th. This is CFFC’s second trip to Virginia’s capital city after thrilling fans last October, as Mike Wade defeated UFC / TUF veteran Kris McCray.
The main event of the evening will feature Richmond’s own Bryan “The Angry Elf” Lashomb (5-1) versus northern Virginia native Justin Hickey (6-3). The stacked card will showcase the talents of amateur and professional MMA fighters throughout the Mid-Atlantic, with Elder “El Psycho” Ramos taking on “Bulletproof” Bryan Lane. Joining the main card are a host of rising stars in the lightweight division including Caleb McAllister vs. Christian “Lights Out” Leonard, and Brett “Unbreakable” Glass vs. Ruben “Bad Boy” Warr. The main card begins with the highly anticipated debut of North Carolina’s Willie “Warhead” Hosch facing veteran Steven “The Govna” Govan.
The night will begin with Alex Steinkoenig versus Rashad Tilghman in an amateur MMA bout. An additional five amateur matches will join them in front of 1500 fans from across the region. Former JMU football player, Scott Noble, looks to make it three in a row against fellow Harrisonburg resident Devin Izzard. Noble’s first two fights have not lasted past the minute mark of Round One, as he finished both with TKO victories.
Not to be outdone by the men, Allison Haynes from Tech MMA in Blacksburg squares off against MMA Institute’s Joanna Catabui. These ladies are sure to compete for Fight of the Night honors.
Diehard MMA fans shouldn’t miss CFFC’s second installment south of the Mason-Dixon. Doors to the Old Dominion Building at RIR will open Saturday at 5:30pm, with the first bell ringing at 6:30pm. Tickets are on sale now at www.cffc.tv
