CFFC 34 RESULTS: Nick Honstein Takes Flyweight Title from Sean Santella in New Jersey - 4/19/14

The Cage Fury Fighting Championships presented CFFC 34: Santella vs Honstein on Saturday, April 19, 2014, at the Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown, New Jersey.

In the main event, Aussie "Quick" Nick Honstein scored a unanimous decision victory over American Sean Santella to capture the CFFC Flyweight Championship. This was a tough loss for Santella, who had been riding a 5-fight winning streak and was firmly on the UFC's radar. Instead it will be back to the drawing board for "Shorty Rock," who will now likely need to string together at least a couple of wins to regain the UFC's attention. The Factory X product Honstein, on the other hand, could be courted by the UFC based on this impressive victory, especially considering the UFC's limited number of Australian fighters and their eagerness to further permeate the Australian MMA market.
