Fight Club Champion made its debut on Saturday, July 26, 2014, and it's a day that will be remembered as the birth of a great new New Jersey fight promotion. Promoter Jay Colon spared no expense in putting together a top notch event. The show was held at the famed Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, New Jersey and the place was packed with fight fans.

It was an honor and a pleasure to ring announce this event. As an MC, you always want a vocal crowd there, and this crowd was loud. It was a great time hosting the show.

Many of the area's finest camps were represented, and the fighters left everything they had in the cage. New Jersey is the nation's leading leading state for all things MMA, and some of the state's most talented fighters competed at this event. All it all, it was a very memorable evening, for all the right reasons.  It's always scary for a new promotion's first event, but this one could not have been run better. Jay Colon and matchmaker Jason Martinez should be proud. They set the stage for what is sure to become one of New Jersey's top promotions.

Indeed, they are already busy planning their next event, to be held at the Jersey City Armory on October 11. If you didn't get a chance to catch this show, you definitely need to be there for the next one.

Here are the official results of the bouts:

Felder

ATLANTIC CITY – Regional MMA champions usually face a long line of worthy challengers, but that’s not always the case.

Given the high stakes involved, some fighters may be eschewing the traditional route of fighting the toughest opponents available and are instead focusing on maintaining outstanding records in the hopes of attracting the attention of UFC bosses.

And that sometimes means passing on the chance to win a championship.

Case in point: Cage Fury Fighting Championships lightweight titleholder Paul “The Irish Dragon” Felder has his belt, but he has struggled to find an opponent for his first title defense.

A hard-nosed striker who won the crown with a second-round TKO of veteran Marc Stevens in March, Felder is unbeaten in seven professional fights and is considered one of the brightest prospects not already in the UFC.

He says after the Stevens fight, his opponent pool shrank drastically.

Professional MMA is still illegal in New York, but thanks to the efforts of promotions like Aggressive Combat Sports, the sport is thriving. These are amateur MMA contests, but they use full MMA rules and you will not find better talent anywhere.
