Cage Fury Fighting Championships 34 Primer: Brad Desir


He's traveled all over the world, both for the sake of the Marine Corps and Muay Thai, but New Yorker Bradley Desir does his best work closer to home - and at CFFC 34, he'll be going to work against the veteran Josh Key.

What you need to know about Desir is this:

  • He's a finisher. His wins have come either by submission, or by TKO.
  • When he loses, it's usually by decision - no one has been able to put Desir away. Not even Renzo Gracie-trained black belts.
  • Before going pro in New Jersey, "Featherstone" honed his craft in the amateur leagues of Virginia, which gave him an edge over other fighters. Why? Because amateur MMA in Virginia is pretty much pro MMA with shorter rounds. By the time he came to CFFC back in 2011, Desir was as sharp as a bayonet.
  • Here's a story on Desir training in Thailand.
Last but not least, here's Desir's last fight, which took place in February:
