Keaneo Moyer Looks for Third Flyweight Title Defense on Sept 8th at Rumble 99
Two FCFF Champions return, two Superfights, two Interim Titles, and two men battle for the vacant 205-pound Division Title.
Portland, OR - On Saturday, September 8th Keaneo Moyer returns to the Slammer in what could be his final showing as the undisputed, undefeated FCFF 125-pound Champion. His only loss was for the FCFF's 135-pound Bantamweight Title; as a Flyweight, he's been flawless. Moyer has verbally challenged fighters that exceed him on paper, only to reign supreme and take leaps forward with each challenge. He's created opportunity for himself in ways that other fighters do not, which creates fans that love him and some that hate him. Fight fans must respect Moyer, as he's shown up every time and delivered. On Saturday, September 8th Moyer looks to make his third Flyweight Title defense attempt at Rumble @ The Roseland 99. Doors open on fight night at 6pm, fights begin at 7pm at the Roseland Theater. Tickets at Cascade Tickets online or in person at Bridge City Fight Shop. Free FCFF Press Conference on Sunday, August 26th at 5pm at Bridge City Fight Shop and fight fans are encouraged to participate, content will be streaming on the FCFF's Facebook page.
In addition to the FCFF's Main Event, the Co-Main event is the FCFF's 155-pound Lightweight Champion fight. The Lightweight Champion, Chance Marsteiner, picks up where he left off, facing Peter Lysenko for the division title. Rumble @ The Roseland 99 will be a showcase of this region's 155-pound division with six fighters going for the Title or for either Superfight belt. A Superfight belt fight is created when a fight is of championship level quality, and Superfight belt holders are traditionally the next title contender. This is the first time, in FCFF history, that three belts (Title or Superfight) have been up for grabs in one night, within one division. The first Superfight belt match-up is arguably about two things, the fighters -AND- the gyms. It's Impact JJ vs Gracie Barra, these two gyms are often producing the region's top talent, where fighters go onto lucrative international fighter careers at the pro level. Zack Cox (Impact JJ) and Austin Allen (Gracie Barra) is set to be an explosive match-up. The second 155-pound Superfight brings mma veteran DJ Nuttall up against Tunde Arigbon. Arigbon set a record at Rumble 98, setting the state's and the FCFF's fastest knockout in history at just three seconds.
Fernando Alvarado is returning from a successful showing at Rumble 98 for a shot at the FCFF's vacant Light Heavyweight division Championship. Alvarado took on Nathan Smith in June at 225-pounds, showing fight fans a taste of what is yet to come, as he ended the bout in round-two via a knockout. On Saturday, September 8th Alvarado will face Doug Francis, a relative unknown and anything can happen.
There are two FCFF Interim Title fights on the card for Rumble 99 on Saturday, September 8th. Abdul Kamara of Gracie Barra, who is the FCFF's former Bantamweight division champion from Rumble 91, is looking to regain his Champion level status. Kamara is looking to gain momentum from his win at Rumble 98 over Sam Crawford via a round one tapout due to guillotine. Kamara is taking on Jaylon Bates out of Portland, Oregon, who has a 6-0 undefeated record from events outside FCFF competition. Bates just defeated Elijah Legget at the July 27th Tuff-N-Uff event via judge's decision, defending his title within that organization. The second Interim Title fight is in the 145-pound Featherweight division between Eduardo Torres (Renzo Gracie) and Max Garrison (SBGi). Torres had a thrilling round-three knockout over Nick Porter at Rumble 95 and will face another fighter who is just as exciting. Garrison just defeated Ivo Wallace at Rumble 98 via a round three TKO, and he also holds the title of FCFF's Fighter-To-Watch in 2018 status.
The excitement doesn't stop with two Champions (Moyer and Marsteiner) returning, two Superfights (Lightweight), two Interim Titles (Bantam and Featherweight) and two 205lbers going for the Light Heavyweight Title, the undercard has two female match-ups and several new fighters looking to see how they measure up in the FCFF. The FCFF is the place to see champions rise. Photos available with ringcard girls (logo wall), when doors open at the Roseland Theater at 6pm. Updated fight cards and info at www.thefcff.com.
