VICTORY 5: The Next Big Must-See MMA Event in NYC


The next big must-see MMA event in New York City is without a doubt Victory Combat Sports' April 25 installment, which promises to once again fill the Armory on Lexington Avenue with thrilling, high-quality violence.

VICTORY 5 will have lightweight champ Marcus Surin defending his belt, while Golden MMA welterweight champ Bernardo Cano will attempt to be a cross-promotional title holder when he takes on Rob Ovalle for the VCS 170-pound strap.

April 25 will also see the opening rounds of featherweight and lightweight four-man tournaments.

Thus far, VCS has done a spectacular job putting forth a quality product, and VICTORY 5 should be no different. You can bet that I'll be cageside for this one.

Sherdog Gives CFFC Some Much Deserved Love


Local promotions come and go, so one true benchmark of success is longevity - a trait the New Jersey-based Cage Fury Fighting Championship definitely has (their first show was back in 2006). But another sign that they're doing something right is the number of talented fighters who use the organization as a stepping stone to the "big show", and in that regard, CFFC is kicking ass.

Veteran Sherdog scribe Lutfi Sariahmed, whose beat is the New Jersey circuit, goes into a bit of detail about CFFC and that latter gauge of success in this piece. It's for sure some well-deserved acknowledgment of the product CFFC is churning out. Give it a read.
