Cage Fury Fighting Championships touches down in Tampa, Florida, tonight as CFFC 106 is set to get down. Two title fights top the bill, with other exciting fights throughout the card.
In the main event, lightweight champion Blake Smith defends his title for the first time in his hometown against the undefeated Paris Artis. Smith earned the title at CFFC 100 back in September, submitting Zulkarnaiyn Kamchybekov in the third round. He is currently riding a three-fight winning streak, and will be looking to extend the streak while keeping his belt by defeating “Ares” Artis, who has finished each of his professional wins and 10 of his 11 when amateur fights are added.
The CFFC 106 co-main event puts the vacant welterweight belt on the line, as Bellator and LFA vet Hugh Pulley takes on undefeated former Combate Global competitor Eric Alequin. “The Wolverine” Pulley has not fought since November 2019, and has gone 1-1 with one No-Contest in his last three fights. His resume includes fights against top competition like Demarques Jackson, Jonavin Webb, Jason Witt, Drakkar Klose, and Grant Dawson, serving as the only man to defeat “KGD” in his professional career to date. Alequin, meanwhile, has gone 6-0 as a professional, including his last two being in Combate Global. He has also sprinkled in wins in grappling competition with Fight 2 Win as well.
Elsewhere on the CFFC 106 main card, former CES bantamweight champion Josh Smith faces recent Dana White’s Contender Series competitor Brandon Lewis, highly-touted prospect Jonathan Piersma faces XMMA vet Charlie Radtke, and the aforementioned Zulkarnaiyn Kamchybekov faces Dean Hancock.
