CWFC Fight Night 5: Bobby Brents v Chris Barnett
FOR the fourth consecutive show, a Cage Warriors event will be headlined by an exciting heavyweight tussle.
Bobby ‘Zombie’ Brents (pictured) will take on Chris ‘Beast Boy’ Barnett in an all-American main event at CWFC Fight Night 5 in Jordan on Thursday, April 12.
29-year-old Brents (12-2-0), who trains out of the MMA Clinic/Fiore MMA in Illinois, returns to action for the organisation following his superb first round submission of Bellator heavyweight Rogent Lloret at Cage Warriors 45 in London on February 18.
His opponent at the New Boxing Arena in Amman, Florida native Barnett (7-1-0), is one of the USA’s top heavyweight prospects.
The 25-year-old’s only professional loss came via decision against 3-0 Bellator star Eric Prindle in October 2010, but he bounced back to secure a second round TKO win against American Top Team’s Mario Rinaldi, before defeating Walter Harris on a decision.
Both fighters will be eager to continue their progress in the heavyweight division in the hope of earning shot at CWFC heavyweight champion Mike ‘300’ Hayes, who captured the title with a victory over Andreas Kraniotakes at CWFC Fight Night 4 in Dubai earlier this month.
Also confirmed for next month’s main card at CWFC Fight Night 5 in Amman is a middleweight bout between Englishman Mike Ling (8-3-0) and France’s Eric Cebarec (8-5-0), and a lightweight clash involving Kevin Donnelly (6-4-0) of Lion’s Den in Exeter and Poland’s Piotr Hallman (8-1-0).
All three fights will be broadcast live by MMAJunkie.com – along with N’Doye v James, Hucin v Cheng and Fields v Phillips – from 7pm (UK) on Thursday, April 12.
Fans can also view three prelims live on the Cage Warriors Facebook page from 6pm (UK). Kicking off the action will be a light-heavyweight contest between Egypt’s Mohamed Ali (4-3-0) and Doo Hwan Kim (3-0-0) of Korean Top Team.
Welshman Kris Edwards (6-3-0), one of Europe’s top bantamweights, will make his Cage Warriors debut against Finland’s Janne Elonen-Kulmala (4-2-0), and two more of Europe’s top talents in the bantamweight division, James Brum (8-2-0) and Thomas Back (5-4-0), will also do battle.
Six amateur bouts involving some of the region’s top up-and-coming talent will kick off the action at 6.30pm local time and a limited number of tickets are still available HERE.
