World Championship Fighting 8 Set to Deliver Once Again

Nick ColonSenior Analyst IOctober 28, 2016

World Championship Fighting's next event on September 26th in Wilmington, Mass. is set up to be everything and more than the first seven events have shown, which says a lot about the organization.

The question is can they live up to the hype? If the first seven shows are any indicator, then Massachusetts residents had better get ready for a great night of fights.

WCF 8 has a wealth of youthful, yet experienced fighters who have already fought in big time promotions. For example, WCF 8 will highlight WEC veteran Mike Campbell who has looked good in his two WEC appearances, but lost to a very slick Anthony Pettis and to UFC veteran Danillo Villefort.

WCF 8 will also welcome back always exciting Dan Bonnell as he tries to regroup from his tough loss at the hands of Dan Ferrer.

Another WCF fighter making his usual appearance will be John Benoit, always a crowd favorite, as he prepares to take on Hitalo Machado from American Top Team.

As many fight fans already can tell, this fight will not be an easy one for Benoit, as every fighter from American Top Team brings their A-Game, and this fight is sure to please all who attend.

One important thing to remember about the WCF is that MMA has not been able to hit the main stage yet in Massachusetts. However, when fans pack the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference, as the fights, the fighters, and all in attendance leave Wilmington after every event asking when the next showing will take place. This simply is a can't-miss event.

WCF President Joe Cavallaro has continuously welcomed fans to the events, even holding events to usher in new ring girls, and raffle away tickets to the event. Simply put, Joe Cav as he's known to those in the Mass. MMA circuit, puts on a great event every time out.

Stay tuned for more exciting information in regards to the WCF, and if at all possible, take every opportunity to go see the event yourself. If you don't believe me, see the preview at
