CFFC 108 Results – Blackshear vs Smith
CFFC returns to one of its favorite cities, Philadelphia, today as CFFC 108 descends live from Parx Casino in the city of brotherly love.
Main event has Bellator, CES and Titan FC vet Da’Mon Blackshear defend his bantamweight title for the first time against the former CES bantamweight champion Josh Smith. Jackson Wink-trained Blackshear is riding a three-fight winning streak, capped by a first-round submission of DeAndre Anderson to win the vacant CFFC bantamweight title at CFFC 103 in his last outing. That winning streak began at CES 62, the same event where America’s Top Team trained Smith captured the aforementioned bantamweight title for that promotion. Smith then lost the title to Jay Perrinwho has since left for the UFC, via second-round submission at CES 64. He then bounced back to earn a decision victory over Kyle Estrada to XMMA 3.
The aforementioned Alabama native DeAndre Anderson will look to bounce back from his first pro loss in the co-main event, taking on the Colombian Ricardo Fuentes in a catchweight bout. Anderson had already won five straight, including an 11-second knockout at CFFC 99 to win the title. Fuentes is 4-2 overall, with two wins by submission and one by TKO, while both losses were by split decision.
The feature fight comes to flyweight, as Ryan Burgos made his professional MMA debut against Ivan Rios. Burgos, the 20-year-old brother of UFC featherweight contender Shane Burgosarrives with an unbeaten 3-0 amateur record, while Rios is 1-0 as a professional, having last fought in August 2019.
