Cage Fury Fighting Championships 64 in San Diego & Combat Games 54 Near Seattle
Alliance MMA, Inc. (“Alliance MMA” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:AMMA), a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) company that brings together the best regional productions to build the next generation of MMA champions, announced today two sell-out events in one week. Combat Games (COGA) 54 in Snoqualmie, Washington at the Snoqualmie Casino, and Cage Fury Fighting Championship (CFFC) 64 in San Diego, California at The Observatory North Park.
COGA 54 was held March 18th and featured a ten-bout fight card showcasing top-level professional martial artists from the Pacific Northwest. In the main event, Nathan Stolen was crowned featherweight champion in front of a sold-out audience in Snoqualmie after defeating Carson Frei via third-round kimura submission. In the Co-Main event, Jeff Sweeney defeated Eddie Blackburn via rear-naked choke submission in round one.
On Saturday night, as previously announced, Eric Del Fierro, Alliance MMA’s General Manager for San Diego, led the matchmaking efforts for CFFC 64 which featured eleven fights (six professional and five amateur). In the main event of the evening, San Diego native Matt Sayles defeated Christian Aguilera via first round technical knockout due to strikes. In the Co-Main event, Team Alpha Male’s Joseph Morales defeated Sean “Shorty Rock” Santella via technical knockout in round two, also due to strikes. A replay of CFFC 64 is available now at CFFC.tv.
“We are extremely pleased with the overwhelmingly positive reception CFFC 64 received in the San Diego market,” said Rob Haydak, President of Alliance MMA. “This inaugural event represents what will soon become our eighth regional promotion, as we expect to introduce a new brand name in the coming months. This highly successful experience also validated our ability to provide a full range of constructive corporate resources, all of which we plan to apply across the Alliance enterprise going forward to help sell-out all of our events in the future.”
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White was in attendance in San Diego to film another episode of his hit YouTube series, “Dana White: Lookin For A Fight.” To watch season two, visit http://bit.ly/LookinForAFight.
