Cage Fury Fighting Championship is back in the South tonight, as CFFC 115 is set to go down live from the Horseshoe Casino and Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi.
The main event is for the vacant welterweight title, as Raheam Forest will battle Collin Lubberts just outside of his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. The 25 year old “Rambo” Forest is undefeated as a professional, with only one of those wins, his promotional debut at CFFC 103 against current middleweight champion and recent Dana White’s Contender Series competitor Donovan Beard, going the distance. He most recently secured a first-round submission at CFFC 111. The 27 year old MMA Masters-trained Lubberts will make his promotional debut tonight having won three in a row after suffering a split decision loss to current UFC fighter Ange Loosa at Titan FC 54. He scored a second-round knockout win with Combate Global in his last fight in July.
Dana White’s Contender Series alum Lance Lawrence will make his promotional debut in the co-main event tonight, taking on the surging Beau Samaniego in a featherweight showdown. His first professional loss to Kevin Syler on DWCS started a three-fight skid for the 29 year old “Tornado” Lawrence, but rebounded in his last fight by picking up a second-round stoppage win. The 27 year old Illinois native Samaniego, meanwhile, has won three in a row, including a second-round TKO over former CFFC featherweight title challenger DeAndre Anderson at CFFC 111 in his last fight.
MMA Sucka has fight fans covered with CFFC 115 results, with the preliminary card starting at 7pm ET/4pm PT on CFFC’s YouTube page, followed by the main card at 9pm ET/6pm PT on UFC Fight Pass.
