The MMA Fight Council (www.MMAFightCouncil.com) just learned this afternoon that Christian Morecraft, the Cage Fighting Xtreme (www.cagefx.com)) Heavy Weight Champion has been signed to a four fight deal by the UFC. This information came directly from a representative of Contact Sports Agency (CSA), Morecraft’s Management team, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for any comments or further information.
As friends of CFX, we were at their May 28, 2010 show, and witnessed Morecraft’s impressive victory to win the belt, and could not be more proud to see a local fighter as deserving as he is, living his dream.
As it goes with such lofty goals, Morecraft will have no easy or warm up fight! He will be tested by fire in his UFC debut, where he will face “The Skyscraper” Stefan Struve at UFC 117 in Oakland, California. While his contract with the UFC is signed, the bout agreements are expected to be signed tomorrow.
Morecraft at 23, is now 6-0 in his young professional career, and has already won two regional HW Championships! He is a very exciting and dynamic fighter that makes you forget that he’s a HW when you watch him fight! He moves, kicks, and punches like a much lighter fighter, and on top of that has a tank that never empties!
Struve, while only 22, is the much more experienced fighter, at 19-4. He will, however, be in for the fight of his life on August 7, 2010 in Oakland, California when he runs into Christian Morecraft!
