A few weeks after CFA announced their 145 tournament, a fighter has dropped out and two fighters are in to fill out the first round.
Brazilian Fabiana Santos has dropped out due to unknown reasons, and Allanna Jones will take her place, taking on pro-debuter Taylor Stratford. Jones (1-1 pro) went 8-2 as an amateur before turning pro this past September. As a bantamweight, she got a TKO over Kathleen Albany in her pro debut, and lost via submission his past November. She will be going up to featherweight for the match.
The last spot in the tournament will be filled by amateur wrestling star Tori Adams (1-0 pro). Adams will face Ashlee Evans-Smith in a rematch from their Tuff-n-uff 2011 match. Adams went 3-0 as an amateur including a submission win over Smith. She went pro this June, getting a decision win over Raquel Pennington.
The new first round matches look like this:
- Kelsey De Santis vs. Brighton Hutton
- Taylor Stratford vs. Allana Jones
- Revelina Berto vs. Peggy Morgan
- Tori Adams vs. Ashley Evan Smith
The CFA featherweight tournament will start March 2 in Coral Gabels, FL. The matches will stream live on CFAfights.com.
