Fighters to watch at Fury Fc 57
Former UFC-fighter Bobby Moffett is 1-1 since his stint in the UFC. his last fight came against fellow UFC-vet Jason Knight, he beat him by unanimous decision in PFL last summer. He faces Charles Cheeks at Fury Fc 57. Cheeks is a tough regional fighter, who has an record of 15-8 in mma. Moffet is still just 31 years old and with a good performance he can start his way back to the UFC.
Johnson scored the UFC Fight Pass knockout of the year 2019. That performance earned him a fight on the Contender Series in 2020. He lost the fight, being outwrestled by Ronnie Lawrence, who tries to make it 2 UFC- wins in a row this week end. Lawrence faces Mana Martinez, who also beat Johnson recently.
Back to Johnson: Since losing to Martinez and Lawrence, Johnson picked up a huge win last november, submitting very highly touted prospect Mo Miller in 2 rounds. Johnson faces Ultimate Fighter veteran Dulani Perry. Perry comes of two losses and a layoff of two years.
This should be a perfect fight for the young 26- year-old to show his skill.
For this fight the 6’0 Johnson moves up to 145 lbs.
The 27-year old Brazilian Lopes is looking to rebound from 2 losses. Lopes dominated the Mexican scene by being featherweight champion in the Lux Fight League promotion
He has a lot of potential and is undoubtedly eager to prove that he is better than he looked in the last two fights. If he wins this fight convincingly he might be the next in line fore the featherweight belt.
Quintana fights in the main event of Fury Fc 47 against Husein Aliev for the featherweight belt. Quintana, similar to Diego Lopes, was very successul in Mexico, fighting for Combate. In his last fight he bounced back from his first defeat in Combate by picking up a unanimous decision win over Edwin Chavez. Quintana is the more experienced fighter in the match up with Aliev and might be the 145 pound champion of Fury Fc on Sunday.
