Former CFFC Bantamweight Champion Aljamain Sterling returns home to CFFC
The usual voices heard during the broadcast at Cage Fury on CBS Sports are none other then UFC’s Paul Felder and the talented Brian Palakow. Both were set to be cageside this Saturday night during CFFC 55 at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, but sadly this will not happen.
With Felder’s looming bout next weekend at UFC Boston against Daron Cruickshank, he was unfortunately forced to withdraw to continue his training camp – with that another former CFFC Champion has stepped up to take his place.
Top 5 ranked bantamweight in the world, and 4x CFFC Champion Aljamain Sterling has answered the call and stepped up to man the microphone this Saturday night for CFFC 55, which streams live via iPPV and airs via tape-delay on CBS Sports Network.
CFFC is proud to bring another Champion home to give back to the local fighters and contribute in a major way to regional MMA.
Limited tickets remain for CFFC 55 at the Borgata
