Cage Fury Fighting Championships returned to Delaware as it presented CFFC XXII at the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. The exciting card was loaded with the top fighters on the East Coast. CFFC has been on a rampage lately promoting some of the best regional MMA in the country. Based in New Jersey, CFFC has expanded into Delaware, giving the MMA fans of that state top ranked MMA action.
In the main event, Evan Velez (6-2) defeated Travis Wynn (3-1) via KO in round two in a flyweight barnburner. In round one, Velez landed some solid leg kicks to Wynn's lead leg that slowed down Wynn's attacks in the early going. Velez switched to southpaw stance and Wynn took advantage by landing a takedown. As Wynn went to improve his position to side mount, Velez scrambled out and both fighters were back on their feet. Velez was able to land more low kicks to Wynn as he took the first round. In round two, Wynn scored with a solid overhand right, while Velez countered with an inside leg kick. Velez followed that up with a huge overhand right that caught Wynn on the button knocking him out cold as the fight was stopped immediately. Velez had a great showing in this fight and looks to fight CFFC Flyweight Champion Sean Santella in the near future. The fight with Santella is a fight that Velez definitely wants as he lost a spilt decision to the champion in 2012. This was the best version of Velez and he put the rest of the flyweights on the East Coast on notice that he packs KO power with one punch.
In the co-main event, Joel Roberts (9-5) defeated Jason McLean (6-6) via split decision after a back and forth battle that was a stand up war for the better part of three rounds. In round one, Roberts dictated the pace by controlling the center of the cage and landing solid leg kicks while McLean was counterpunching in spots. In round two, McLean was more effective in landing strikes, but Roberts continued to use technical precision and land punches, knees and kicks of his own. Roberts also controlled the round by using some clinch work and keeping McLean's back against the cage for the last few minutes of the round. In round three Roberts sealed the deal with a strong clinch game where he was able to stall out McLean's offense and land some knees in the process.
