International Scene | CWFC Fight Night 5: Bobby Brents Vs. Chris Barnett

March 30, 2012 7:50 am by Pedro Carrasco

FOR the fourth consecutive show, a Cage Warriors event will be headlined by an exciting heavyweight tussle.

Bobby ‘Zombie’ Brents 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).
