CFC Releases Official Lineup for September 10 Card
Canadian Fighting Championship’s card is now official for its spectacular night of combat on Saturday, September 10th. CFC 7 will once again showcase Manitoba’s best fighters and best fight promotion at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
Main eventing the evening will be Winnipeg’s ‘Dangerous’ Dave Zuniga in a championship fight. After sharpening his Muay Thai game in Thailand, Zuniga returns to fight in front of his home audience for the first time in two years. Zuniga will face Detroit’s Cyrus Washington for the IKF North American Middleweight title.
Who is the best Manitoban MMA fighter in the Welterweight division? The CFC 7 semi-main event will answer this question as the ultra-tough Chris Stranger from Peguis, Manitoba will take on the technically superior Lindsey Hawkes.
In other MMA action, a Winnipeg fighter will look to stay unbeaten in Canadian Fighting Championship competition. Eric Perez, 5-0 in the CFC, will face Tony Bibby in hopes to remain unbeaten. Perez always brings fans to their feet with his electrifying performances at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. This promises to be another stand up war and one of Perez’ stiffest tests to date.
In addition to those three great fights, fans can witness Duke Roufus’ protege Sergio Pettis’ professional MMA debut. Roufus was voted trainer of the year in 2010 and Sergio is one of his top students. Sergio is the brother of former WEC champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis and will follow in his brother’s MMA footsteps in the CFC ring on September 10th. Both Anthony Pettis and Duke Roufus will be in attendance for Sergio’s first pro fight.
