Observations From My Couch: Cage Fury Fighting Championships 57


(March 19, Philadelphia, P.A.) The long-running Northeast promotion Cage Fury Fighting Championships returned to Philadelphia, and with it came all the usual top-level and talent and thrills you've come to expect from the CFFC brand. Two flyweight titles were up for grabs - one for females and one for males - while veterans and rising stars alike battled it out on the undercard. Highlights on the night included:

  • The amazing back-and-forth skirmish between grizzled warrior Jeff Lentz and Bill Algeo, whose aggression and creative attacks had them workings some fantastic scrambles and throws all the way through the fifth round. Algeo took the unanimous decision, but both men waged a war they should be proud of.
  • The dominance of Katlyn Chookagian, which saw her snuffing out Stephanie Bragayrac with a body-blow KO via a killer knee. Chookagian is without question the best female flyweight around.
  • UFC vet Louis Gaudinot, who didn't need much time to waste Sideco Honorio with a barrage of strikes. Honorio is no slouch, so Gaudinot's championship title is well-earned.
  • Azunna Anyanwu, who withstood Chris Birchler's wrestling onslaught in the first round to batter him mercilessly for the last two rounds.
