Cage Fury Fighting Championships holds its first-ever Strawweight title fight Saturday in Coachella, CA.
Drew Zuhosky has a preview.
Although the UFC is taking the weekend off for the Memorial Day holiday, it doesn’t mean we’ll be without MMA to watch this Saturday. No, sir. This weekend, for the second weekend in a row, Cage Fury Fighting Championships will stream CFFC 75 on UFC Fight Pass (main card Saturday at 10 p.m. EDT, 7 p.m. PDT, after the unaired prelims.)
For the first time ever, CFFC will feature a Strawweight title fight in the CFFC 75 main event. That fight will match 5-0 Miranda Granger against 4-1 Heloisa Azevedo for the belt.
As is customary with CFFC championship fights, this fight will be a maximum of four rounds at five minutes per round. In case of a draw after four rounds in the event of a judges’ decision, a fifth round will be contested to break the tie.
Heading into the initial Strawweight championship fight, undefeated Granger is the taller combatant, standing 5-foot-7, five inches taller than Azevedo’s 5-foot-2 frame.
As previously stated, Miranda Granger has posted a perfect 5-0 record in her professional MMA career.
Dating back to her amateur career, she has gone 10-0 as a fighter.
Most recently, she scored a first-round submission victory via an armbar against Jamie Colleen in the Dec. 14 CFFC 71 card on UFC Fight Pass on a night when the promotion made its debut on the streaming platform.
In the other corner, Heloisa Azevedo has gone 4-1 in her professional career. Last time out, she scored a first-round armbar submission against Alana Souza in the Jan. 25 Future FC 1 card.
Ordinarily, at this point in the article, we would mention who has the reach advantage on the tale of the tape as per Tapology, but that information is unavailable on the site.
Prediction: Miranda Granger by first-round knockout.
