CXF Ends Huge Year With “Night Of Champions” December 17th

The ONLY live Professional MMA show in the San Fernando Valley and one of the best shows in all of California returns to the legendary Sportsmen’s Lodge Event Center in Studio City, California on Saturday, December 17, 2016.

CXF: NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS concludes a banner year for the team of Lights Out Promotions and Bash Entertainment with a total of 5 CXF title bouts and 8 prelim bouts. The talent on both sides of the ledger provides fight fans an early holiday gift with what could very well be Southern California’s most exciting mixed martial arts event of 2016.

The Main Card:

CXF Title Bout #1:

Current reigning and defending CXF Bantamweight Champion Alfred Khashakyan (7-3 MMA) returns to action to put his title on the line against extremely talented young gun Bronson Casarez (4-1 MMA). A true battle of Thunder vs. Lightning is in store.

CXF Title Bout #2:

CXF Lightweight Champion Dominic Clark
(10-5 MMA)
will make his second defense against Danny Navarro (11-6 MMA), a man he was scheduled to face a few months back before an injury intervened with destiny. Now these two top lightweights are on a collision course and the resulting wreckage is something you will not want to miss!

CXF Title Bout #3:

Newly crowned champion Dmitry Gerasimov (6-4 MMA) will be defending his CXF Featherweight Championship against Max Ceniceros (6-2 MMA) in a rematch of a bout where Cenisceros defeated Gerasimov by decision. This grudge match will decide the direction of the division as we head into 2017.

CXF Title Bout #4:

CXF Middleweight Champion Moses Murrietta (3-0) will be defending his belt for the second time when he takes on the heavy-handed Blake Troop (4-4 MMA). With the kind of power these two men can generate, you can almost bet, someone is going to sleep.

CXF Title Bout #5:

The vacant CXF Welterweight title is up for grabs as well as Vardan Sholinian (7-2 MMA) and Mike Jasper (10-3 MMA) set to mix it up. This could be a back and forth chess match with violent consequences. Sholinian is a beast on the ground, but Jasper is one crafty devil and can end the fight instantly.

The always entertaining and show stealing CXF prelim bouts will include:

Georgie Garcia vs. Kyler Phillips
Tihomir Blagovestov vs. Derion Chapman
Marcos Bonilla vs. A. J. Bryant
Leon Shahbazyan vs. Akkim Lee
Bryanna Fissori vs. Madison McElhaney
Serob Minasyan vs. Ronnie Borja
Matt Hagge vs. Christian Bizarretty
Keith Cutrone vs. Anthony Nealy
