CBS Sports Network will exclusively televise at least four Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) events in 2015.

The first event televised on CBS will be CFFC 48: Lyman Good vs. Nah-Shon Burrell on Thursday, May 14. The event takes place inside the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Former Bellator welterweight champion Good will meet former UFC welterweight Burrel in the headliner.

CBS Sports Network will feature coverage of CFFC’s June 6 event at Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. It will also televise at Borgata again in July 18 and October 31.

CFFC CEO Rob Haydak Jr. said this puts the promotion to another level.

“Since day one, CFFC has been very systematic in our approach to build a brand that centered around its athletes,” Haydak Jr. said  “This national television agreement provides additional exposure to further showcase one of the best MMA rosters in the sport.”

Sherdog.com recently acknowledged their top 10 regional promotions outside of the UFC. Not mentioned in the top 10 is the CFFC.

Exposure like CBS Sports Network is something rare to come by.

“This is a game-changer for us,” CFFC President Mike Constantino said.  “We’ve worked extremely hard over the years to reach an industry-level position that recognizes CFFC as a leader and this agreement with CBS Sports Network only helps to solidify that position.”

CBS Sports Network broadcasts across the the country through satellite through video and local cable. For more information, visit www.cbssportsnetwork.com
