CFFC returns tonight from one of its favorite arenas, the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as CFFC 109 goes down live with a seven-fight card.
After the cancellation of the original main event, an interim flyweight title fight between Santo Curatolo and Hugo Paiva, a lightweight fight between Mauro Chalet and Manoel Sousa has been promoted to take its place. The two Brazilian fighters are seemingly on different career trajectories, making this a real crossroads fight. The 33 year old Chalet sports a 14-8 record, having lost his last two by first-round stoppage against Andre Harrison at CES 65 last November and Damon Jackson in the main event of LFA 83 in March 2020. “Manumito” Sousa, meanwhile, is an undefeated 24 year old, last picking up a first-round submission victory at CFFC 105 in his American debut.
Chris Vasil is back in the CFFC cage in the co-main event, taking on New Jersey-based Albanian “Strong Eagle” Vilson Ndregjoni at featherweight. “Bad Apple” Vasil last fought with the promotion at CFFC 95, when he was on the receiving end of a highlight-reel stoppage to Paul Capaldo. He has since rebounded from that loss, the second of his career, to pick up his fifth career win in another promotion. Ndregjoni last competed in March, dropping a unanimous decision to bring his record to 4-2. All but two of his fights have reached the judges’ scorecards, while all but two of Vasil’s have not, making for an interesting clash.
