Cage Fury Fighting Championships had some good timing this week as they have back-to-back events planned at the 2300 Arena tonight and tomorrow night. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused Philadelphia to enforce restrictions that start on Friday and will not affect the next two nights of mixed martial action. In the CFFC 88 main event, Phil “the Hitman” Caracappa (9-1) fights for the bantamweight title vs Tycen Lynn (7-4).
The results of the card are listed below.
CFFC 88 results:
Chris “Bad Apple ” Vasil (3-1) vs Fadi Shuman (3-1) 150 lb catch-weight
Vasil was very sharp in his stand-up game and finished Shuman early via strikes at 1:44 of round 1
Winner Chris Vasil via TKO round 1 2:44
Dilshod Zaripov (2-0) vs Miguel Diaz (2-1)
A very entertaining fight with a lot of scrambles from both men. Diaz almost finished the fight in round 1 with a kimura but Zaripov showed crazy flexibility to defend. This one went to the judges.
Winner via unanimous decision 30-27 30-27 29-28 Miguel Diaz
Claudia Baril (1-0) vs Criszaida Adames (2-0)
Close first round but Adames does secure the takedown and some very nice elbows and punches in the latter part of round 1 . Round 2 sees Adames secure a takedown and immediately transition to the back and rear naked choke finish. Impressive
Winner vis RNC 2:07 Round 1 Criszaida Adames
Tycen Lynn (7-4) vs Phil Caracappa (9-1)…135lb CFFC Championship
Caracappa looking strong and aggressive on his feet but Lynn lands a shin to the temple on a high kick that rocks Caracappa. Lynn wastes no time capitalizing into a takedown and rear-naked choke finish.
Winner via technical submission via RNC 3:22 Round 1 Tycen Lynn

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
