Warfield-Palomino Tops CFA 6 Lineup on April 13
Championship Fighting Alliance continues the legacy delivering top-notch mixed martial arts events in South Florida by presenting CFA 06 at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida, 1245 Dauer Drive, featuring the main event between Wisconsin fighter James “The unbreakable heavy hitter” Warfield versus Peruvian born Luis “baboon” Palomino for the CFA lightweight title. The Miami favorite Palomino (18-7) walks in with a two winning streak as Warfield walks in with an impressive 22-9 record. Both men have competed in other respected promotions and have fights against notable fighters like UFC fighter Yves Edwards.
CFA CEO Jorge de la Noval has assured CFA 06 is one for the books.
“This is a blockbuster main event,” said de la Noval, who is adamant that there are no “easy fights” in CFA.
Warfield trains with Roufusport Mixed Martial Arts Academy, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where kickboxing great Jeff “Duke” Roufus is one of the top trainers. Notable names like Alan Belcher and Pat Barry train in the camp. While Palomino trains with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master Daniel Valverde and respectable fighters like Valdir “BB Monstro” Araujo.
All eyes will be on the under card featuring fighters prepared to provide exciting and thunderous performances. Son of UFC veteran Dieuseul Berto, James “Little Tiger” Berto (16-9), who is fighting out of Winter Heaven, Fl. and is an EliteXC veteran, faces off against Iowan Abel Trujillo (7-4), who has two wins consecutively. Berto comes back for action in the cage after losing to Palomino in October.
CFA 06 will electrify fans with a promising war between MMA Masters standout Peter Grimes (10-8) and mixed martial arts veteran and international fighter Charles Bennett (25-24), who has fought in Pride-Bushido 9 and EliteX.
Two of the most competitive training grounds in Florida will collide when Frank “Buffalo” Carrillo (5-2), a Bellator veteran, of MMA Masters, based in Miami, FL, will meet in the cage against American Top Team, located in Coconut Creek, Fl., standout Bellator veteran Cristiano Souza (5-0). Both teams have a rivalry and whoever wins will sure enjoy the bragging rights.
