Hard hitting MMA action returns to the Newtown Athletic Club in Newtown, Pennsylvania as the American MMA Fight League (AMMAFL) presents MMA FIGHT NIGHT III, September 30 live on the GFL Combat Sports Network. Coming off the heels of a very successful show in June, AMMAFL is once again ready to present another great night of exciting fights for the MMA fans on the East Coast and around the world.
American MMA Fight League is promoting its third event in the promotion’s short history and in that time it has created a buzz for itself and established itself as a proving ground for some of the top up and coming MMA athletes on the East Coast. AMMAFL events always feature a great mix of knockouts, submission and hotly contested decisions. The growing organization is quickly gaining a stranglehold on the often overlooked hotbed of MMA, which is Pennsylvania. Promoter Jim McCann believes FIGHT NIGHT 3 will raise the bar even more for MMA fans and give the audience another first-class night of fights.
"I think Fight Night 3 is going to be our best show to date," he said. "We've got some really top notch local Philadelphia, New Jersey, New York metro fighters. Everyone is relatively local so that helps with ticket sales and excitement. We've got guys like Chris Wing, who's a phenomenal fighter out of Philadelphia. He's fighting Jason Lee. Jason fought on our last two cards. Unfortunately he came up short but he's a tremendous, exciting fighter. And I don't think his record shows exactly how good of a fighter he is. And we have some other top guys that I think are not only going to be exciting for the fight but really drive a good crowd in there."
Another featured bout includes Jesus “Chavo” Martinez (6-1) who battles Caleb Ball (6-3) in a middleweight bout. The Pennsylvanian Martinez should have the hometown crowd behind him as he battles the Virginian Ball. Martinez is looking to prove that he is ready for a title shot and is coming off of a knockout victory in his last fight. Ball is on a two-fight win streak himself and would love nothing more than to shut down Martinez’s plans. Both fighters have a strong ground game, but have been known to bang it out on their feet. Expect fireworks from these two as they will be looking to make a statement at the other’s expense. The winner of this bout should really gain career momentum and a victory here might propel the winner to a shot with a nationally televised organization.
A bout that is sure to rock the undercard is between Casey Adams (2-3) and Allen Otto (1-1) in what should be a hotly-contested welterweight bout. Both fighters are coming off disappointing split decision losses, so you can be they are going to do everything in their power to not let this fight go to a judges’ decision. Expect both Adams and Otto to light into each other early and look for a way to win by submission or TKO at the beginning of the fight. Don’t blink because this bout could be over quickly.
Dan "The Beast" Severn will also be in attendance as the former UFC Champion and Hall of Famer will be having a meet and greet before the action kicks off in the ring and also teaching a four-hour MMA seminar at McCann’s gym, located right next to the arena on October 2.
