Jun 19, 2014
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Atlantic City, NJ – Almost seven years to the date, former world champion Lyman Good (15-3) will return to Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) to take on the Ultimate Fighting veteran, Matt Secor (4-1) in a welterweight showdown this Saturday, June 21st, 2014 at the Mennen Arena in Morristown, New Jersey.

“We are very excited to bring the CFFC back to Northern NJ with a night of action packed fights,” said CFFC President, Mike Constantino. “Last show was a great start but this show will be huge.”

“I am honored to have the opportunity to return to a promotion that I've fought for in the past,” said Good. “CFFC has helped propel me into the bigger shows becoming a welterweight champion for Bellator. Feels good to return to my roots and fight my way up the food chain to the top. My goal is to make a statement in the welterweight division and make a name for myself. My determination and CFFC will get me standing in the UFC cage. I've had a good relationship with CFFC from the beginning and they have put out great production value with their shows. Also, the calibers of their fighters have been top notch and have helped march them onto that UFC octagon.”

Lyman Good is one of the best fighters in the world,” continued Constantino. “He is a physical specimen and we are thrilled to have him with CFFC and give him the opportunity to showcase his talents.” Good is usually all business and at this point of his career, he doesn’t need any extra motivation. However, we he had learned that Secor was asking for the fight, it changed his approach. “I'm extremely motivated by challenges and adversity,” said Good. “Him asking to personally fight me galvanizes my focus and intensity during training and makes me work even harder. I thank him for the challenge and for the extra motivation during training.”

In regard to a prediction of the fight, Good simply had one word; "Win!”

Secor, who debuted with CFFC last year with a submission victory in under a minute, is excited to be a part of a CFFC main event and for the opportunity to fight Good. “When the CFFC signed Lyman I asked to fight him because he is one of the best welterweights in the north east and is an amazing fighter,” said Secor. “Opportunities like this do not come along that often and you have to seize them when they do. Lyman is an amazing fighter. His record shows that he has fought some of the best in the world and was the ex-Bellator champ. “I have the up most respect for him as a fighter.”

Secor is also confident he will leave June 21 with a victory as well and with that victory, more doors will open up for him. “I'm going to win,” said Secor. “Then hopefully I’ll get to the next level and get back to the UFC. “I want the world to see what I have to offer.”

“As soon as Matt heard that we signed Lyman, he requested the fight,” said CFFC CEO Robert Haydak Jr. “You have to respect that and whoever wins this fight will be considered one of the top welterweights in the country.”

CFFC will return to the Mennen Arena with a stacked card.
