NAAFS returns on January 31st with Caged Fury 21. The main event is for the bantamweight title as Antonio Castillo Jr. faces Isaiah Chapman. But that is not the only exciting bout on the card. One of the most anticipated is Andrew Cseh facing Josh Robinson. One reason this is exciting is it will be the first ever pro flyweight bout in NAAFS history. For those not familiar, flyweight is 125 pound division. This is a division that is growing in popularity with people like UFC champ Demetrious Johnson showing the incredible speed guys at this weight class posses. There may be less of a chance at a devastating knockout like you see in the heavier classes, but you will see non-stop fast paced action.
While the division is growing in popularity, still it is a hard division to get two legit skilled people to face each other on “local” cards because it is still a growing division. NAAFS however has managed to match two fighters like that. Cseh brings in a 6-3 record, a winner in his last four fights, the last two by rear naked choke in the first round. In fact, four of his six wins are by finishes. Josh Robinson is a seventeen fight veteran with a 10-9 record, a winner of two of his last three with wins in a variety of methods.
Cseh has been off since June of 2013 while Robinson fought twice in 2014. Will the time off be a benefit for Cseh or will the so-called ring rust play a factor? Only way to know is get your tickets if you are in the area or order the stream of the event. One thing for sure you will see is two very skilled fighters battle for up to 15 minutes in non stop action in a fight that on the ground or standing could end at any time or could be a 15 minute battle that has the potential to steal the show.
