As Championship Fighting Alliance CEO, I am thrilled to welcome you to CFA 12 where, for the first time, will feature five title fights in one night.

The flyweight, interim featherweight and inaugural women’s featherweight belt will be on the line.

Plus, the vacant lightweight and welterweight titles will also be up for grabs.

In CFA, we search for the best fighters, who can deliver excitement and our main event between Sam Thao and CFA Flyweight champion Josh Sampo will live up to the hype. Both of these men are true athletes and are the top in the flyweight division globally.

I’ve always been a major fan of women’s mixed martial arts because they bring excitement to the cage. After searching across the world, we found the best pound-for-pound ladies to compete in our all women tournament, which started earlier this year.

CFA 12 marks the finals as Ashlee Evans Smith and Fallon Fox will meet inside the cage with the winner taking home the women’s featherweight title and $20,000.

This is a fight that can go either way, so expect to be on your feet as we crown a CFA queen.

In addition, featherweight interim champion Sean Soriano has yet to lose, but will meet an experienced foe in Alejandro Garcia.

Cuban American Yosdenis Cedeño is undefeated in CFA action earning him a shot at the vacant lightweight title against Torrance Taylor, who is currently on a five fight winning streak.

Finally, the vacant welterweight title will be on the line between the Brazilian jiu jitsu expert Valdir Araujo, who gets a crack at the belt against another compatriot Romario Manoel da Silva, a submission artist.

Our show will air live on AXS TV nationally, but our fans at the BankUnited Center have the best seat being part of the CFA experience live.

Sit back and enjoy CFA, ’Where we build champions.’
