Two Titles Complete CFFC 28 at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey!

Oct 17, 2013
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Atlantic City, NJ – There will be two titles on the line when CFFC 28 comes to the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday October 26, 2013. In the main event, former UFC top contender Charlie Brenneman (18-5) continues to climb the lightweight ranks when he battles Kyle Baker (11-4) for the vacant lightweight title. Brenneman hasn’t lost since his UFC departure and has won three in a row since going down to the lightweight division. With a successful run at the welterweight division, Baker also looks to find new success at the lightweight division. This will be his first fight at 155 pounds and no better to make a statement then capturing the CFFC crown.

The other title up for grabs is the CFFC heavyweight crown that will pit the prospect, Chris Birchler (5-0) versus the veteran Johnny Curtis (8-2). After starting his career at 4-0, Birchler took on Joe Stripling for the vacant CFFC heavyweight title in June of this year and edged out the veteran via decision to continue his undefeated dominance. Curtis is currently riding a seven fight win streak heading into this fight and hasn’t lost since 2008. Birchler’s first title defense will be his toughest challenge to date.

In another featured bout, Jordan Stiner (5-0) will battle Jarred Marcado (10-0) in a fight with title implications. After turning pro in 2012, Stiner has stopped four out of his five opponents and most recently submitted Donald Ooton in August of 2013 by rear naked choke in the third round. Ooton was undefeated at the time and the Renzo Gracie protégé hopes to knock another undefeated fighter off on October 26. With an impressive wrestling background in New Jersey, Mercado moved to Colorado and continued his MMA career. In Mercado’s last fight, he captured a title and hasn’t lost a fight in the pro or amateur ranks. He hopes his return to his hometown will result in another victoty.

One of the fights that the winner of Stiner and Mercado will be looking at is the featherweight tournament fight between Jeff Lentz (9-3-1) and Gemiyale Adkins. Lentz will fighting after a year-long layoff and hopes to impress in his CFFC debut. He’s fought a who’s who in MMA and a win here would put him one step closer to CFFC gold. His opponent, Adkins, gave Charlie Brenneman all he could handle in his last fight. Although it wasn’t the result he hoped for, Adkins knows that a victory here could catapult his career.

In other bouts, Jonavin Webb (3-0) will take a huge step up in competition when he takes on the Burmese Python, Aung La Nsang (15-8) in a welterweight showdown. Paul Felder (5-0) will look to remain undefeated when he takes on TUF alumni Julian Lane (5-2-1) in a lightweight bout and standout wrestling prospect Jamelle Jones (0-0) returns to New Jersey to take on veteran Walter Howard (2-3) in a light heavyweight tussle. The rest of the stacked card features a variety of local favorites, veterans, and two females making their pro debuts. For more info on where to purchase tickets, visit and look for us on facebook.
