Three shows in three weeks for LFA starts this weekend with Bazzi vs. Hamilton


April has three events in three weeks for AXS with the first taking place this weekend as Jesse Bazzi faces CJ Hamilton.  LFA 8 takes place April 7th at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, SC with a main card broadcast on AXS TV.

At 10-4 as a pro CJ Hamilton has the experience advantage over 6-1 Jesse Bazzi.  Hamilton has been tearing up the independent scene with his five-fight win streak including victories in LFC, Titan FC, and Valor Fights with his most recent win being a TKO of Cory Alexander for the Valor title in December.  Bazzi makes his national-level show debut with his only loss being to Malcolm Gordon last August while his two victories since then came against Timothy Sosa and Jared Scoggins.

Dave Vitkay

The co-main event is a clash of Bellator vets as Jeremie Holloway fights Dave Vitkay.  18-12-1 Vitkay had some setbacks to his career such as back-to-back KO losses in December 2011 and March 2012 but since those losses he has gone on an eight-fight win streak.  Vitkay wasn’t really going anywhere in Bellator despite going 3-0 in that organization however Vitkay seems to have found a home in LFA where he won his last three fights.  Now coming back almost a year to the day since his win over Cody Wilson Vitkay enters this bout as the promotional vet.  Holloway may also be a Bellator vet but he went 0-2 with losses to Matt Secor and Michael Page.  Holloway’s most recent fight was in January, a unanimous decision over Mike Jackson in regional promotion Xtreme Knockout.
